Hamster and Nippon Ichi partner up to bring Arcade Archives to PS4

Channeling that same idea, Hamster Corporation, and Nippon Ichi Software have partnered up to bring a new arcade collection to PlayStation 4 in Japan. The games will support online leaderboards, as well as PS4′s various Share functions. Each of the twenty titles announced will cost 823yen."

Why do North America and Europe not get more of these?

There's a fairly sizable audience for Retro games and it costs almost nothing to simply release them on PSN.

Well they are 2 Japanese companies, maybe they are just doing the standard announce for Japan first.
Also it really depends on who owns the licenses for these games outside of Japan (if that is an issue of course).

I just find it strange these are not headed to the PSV as well, especially with handhelds being more popular in Japan.

Either way its cool. Good thing PS4 is region free if you really want to play these.

Sadly, some of these "retro" games have better graphics than most indies.

It doesn’t seem like a major shakeup , as the man put in the new position has many credits to his name similar to the old president .
