When inafune first said that japanese game developers were becoming lazy and unimaginative ... i thought it was crazy talk! but.. as the months go on since he said it things are starting to ring true. The slew of japanese publishers like konami, capcom dashing to acquire "western" developers and licensing some of their most prized IP's, like DMC, DeadRising, Castlevania. The attempt of Capcom attempting to cash in on the skyrim bandwagon and making dragons dogma..
Maybe inafune was right..
im looking at my library and there isnt a single japanese game on there save for street fighter x tekken.
