As MS and Sony fight for the video game throne, Nintendo quietly steals the crown from under both their noses :D

Nintendo does not care what we flame on about.
They don't even read our crap. They simply sip on a fine of bottle champaign, while wiping there backsides with hundred dollar bills.

This generation, unlike the last is actually not that bad for PS3 in Japan.

Back last gen. there was GC and PS2 that was competing for some titles like jRPG and some J games we dont ever see here, and of course xbox is not even in the talk here,

This gen, xbox still not selling, the Wii is now a low tech system for those "quirky" quick games. Some good titles are coming out though.

That leaves one high tech system that developers who see game as a continous improvement woudl persue. That's the PS3. Good example is Square Enix's FF13 adn Versus, too advance to be ran on the Wii, so the only system left to develop for is PS3. At least initially in Japan the leading platform will be PS3, wheter it will be ported to xbox in the States is a different matter.

I am only referring to very Japan-centric games.
