Speaking at the Develop Conference 2009 in Brighton today, PaRappa the Rapper creator Masaya Matsuura suggested that the international game development community must avoid letting an East-West divide separate the industry.
"Developers in the East and West should not be too separate," said Matsuura. "It should me international, and we need to work with more international artists.
"I'm very concerned about this point, and perhaps it could be bad for the industry. I hope things change very soon."
