Nick @ PS3Center writes:

Luminary Japanese designer Goichi Suda is not of the same opinion, though. In a recent interview, Suda, director of No More Heroes and Killer 7, spoke out on what he thought of the industry, indicating that he thinks that the Japanese gaming industry still has "potential".

So long as they put out more games like Demons Souls and less games like Blue Dragon, they'll be alright.

Replace Blue Dragon with FFXIII :P

gaffyh3225d ago

Blue Dragon wasn't that good though, but Lost Odyssey is awesome.

JustCallMeMarcus3225d ago

They should just fix JrPG's and make like they used to be. Stop trying to "westernize" them, or dumb them down for the "average gamer"

JeneraL OUT

I agree Jeneral, but every JRPG that goes west gets beaten to hell in reviews because its NOT a openworld wrpg.

every JRPG that goes west gets beaten to hell in reviews because its not a FPS.

Gaming in Japan isn't what it used to be, last years TGS kinda made that clear. TGS used to be the best for gaming, but last year they had a hard time just trying to get any developers to show up with a product.

The previous year wasn't great either, which is why companies like SE and Capcom are trying to direct their attention towards the west. A large majority of the japanese gaming community are wrapped around Nintendo tightly, with a decent amount into Playstation products and a select few on Xbox product(s).

With a large majority of gamers in japan hooked on Nintendo they have to go somewhere else with their next gen games... so they head west where their products have great potential!

That Suda dude is f***ing awesome. He makes some real crazy games.

Kalowest3225d ago

The J-Industry needs more Devs like Suda51, Hes insane.

ChrisW3224d ago (Edited 3224d ago )

That's because Suda51 doesn't do many JRPGs! Mostly action adventure.

Kalowest3225d ago

Suda51 is cool as hell, in NMH2 you have to take a Sh!t to save, now that's creative. The J-Industry seems like they have switched their creative from Consoles(360&PS3 mainly)games, to Handhelds/Small DL games.

Of course Japan has a lot potential. Japanese are the one that started gaming. Still today they still make the best games in my opinion. Don't get me wrong I enjoy western games to but I still prefer Japanese games. Games like Street fighter, Mario, Sonic, Resident Evil, Tekken, and Donkey Kong are the games that got me into gaming. I enjoy western games like Syphon Filter, Mortal Kombat, God of War and some other western games but I can't stand fps because I find them really boring and I don't like RPG games either.

also games like The last guardian, 3d dot heroes etc
