They only care about nip devs that make big western style games like Capcom.
Smaller devs are irrelevant to them, and are outright looked down upon considering they keep fucking with their games. Hopefully, they start ditching them for Nintendo or PC. Even Xbox won't fuck with them.

TL: we will continue to censor the Japanese games and bully your devs but please buy our throttling "next-gen" console with a handful of AAA tranny movies our Western studios will shit out somewhere 3 years after the launch kthx

Nah. PS4 is much cheaper with a bigger library. Buy a PS5 in 4-5 years when it's had price drops and real games.

>>525284864
Weren't they treating Japanese developers like shit? Forcing them to hold online meetings on US hours, not providing a translator nor having a Japanese speaker amongst them, telling them that they had to censor their games or be refused, which, if you're some tiny developer struggling to make games or even a smaller studio, it's like having to face an oppressive state that constantly abuses you. As far as I know they didn't do this to western developers. Not American or European. Just the Japanese. Sony California hates Japanese games, their deeds speak louder than press releases.

>>525285884
Sony has been the best selling console in Japan since 2. Once they moved to San Fran that started to change, drastically.
>>
>>525287519
With his comprehension of the current state of the Japanese market it wouldnt surprise me if PS Studios made a 70 dollar gacha game with tons and tons of lootboxes.
>>
>>525287350
I seriously doubt PS5 is getting a new Persona that won't be a timed exclusive or Switch/PS5 day one. PS5 is a normalfag GTA/FIFA machine, they don't need nor want the Japanese support.
>>
>>525287573
Sounds a lot like 90s Nintendo.
>>
>>525287350
Atlus will probably make all future Persona releases on PS,PC and Switch, Its too much money for them to resist.
>>
>>525287702
At least they started to port Souls games for PC. Less games are getting held hostage by Sony is a good thing.
>>
>>525287094
What?
A lot of japanese developers found out that making mobile games wasnt sustainable because it's an ultra competitive market with a super fickle audience, it's quite hard to almost impossible to release a new mobage and have it be successful. Whereas releasing a game on PC and console is stable and generates a known amount of revenue. Big companies like SE and Bamco release successful mobile games AND console games while Capcom has been trying to break into mobile for a decade and never succeeded once.
>>
>>525288016
That reminds me

What happened to that shitty Pokemon MOBA?

Its dumb but they wanted everything in English because they stopped doing separate regional branches of Playstation. Not sure if they even have any non English Euro studios so this really only affects Japan.

but anon
resident evil and final fantasy
you know? those games that are launched WHITOUT japanese voices these days
>>
>>525287821
Yeah, that's the correlation that people have been making since it's happened.
It's really ironic because part of the PS4's success came from easing the publishing process for small developers, which Xbox made a living hell for them. Now Sony are the tyrants and abusers, all in the name of won't somebody think of the children when we all know it's modern Californians trying to force everyone to have their political views.
>>
>>525284864
Oh please, they haven't been relevant in Japan since PS2
>>
>>525288016
This.
Pokemon Masters is a total flop despite being fucking Pokemon. Smaller devs have outright died because they put all their eggs in the mobage basket and their games failed, or in some cases, never even made it to release.

>>Disgaea 6 not getting PS4 support outside of Japan

>>
>>525287702
I can see Switch but Persona 4 golden got immediately pirated on PC, which is fine for a $20 game but not a $60 game ($70). I can see them waiting on it for a couple of years.
>>
>>525284864
This guy literally admitted he only cares about AAA games. He's only talking about games that are already heavily westernized like Final Fantasy. Devil May Cry, and Resident Evil. Meanwhile Monster Hunter Rise will probably sell more in Japan than all of those combined over there.
>>
>>525289034
The point is that Nintendo is paying for those games to be in their console, not because Japanese devs want to

Japan doesn't care about consoles anymore. If Sony or Microsoft truly cared about trying to appeal to them, their new consoles would be Switch clones.

It's so fucking easy to do this. Stop censoring, support and put Japanese devs in the spotlight instead of shitty Western devs, and make games Japs want to play instead of Western shit.
This not only would be good for Japan but also good for PS fans that want Sony to return to their roots.

>>525288732

>>
>>525290123
There's no main story in Persona you retard. They're all in the same universe but there's never any large connections between them outside of direct sequels like Arena and Scramble.
Q and Q2 are non-canon fanservice spinoffs.

Only reason that publishers or devs stuck around for long ass time is because Sony throw devkits like candy and licenses for nearly free. Lot of Vita devs got PS4 kits for free.

You're missing my point, it doesn't matter what Japanese consumers want, they will have to buy PS5, because third parties will refuse to move from that platform at any point in time. third parties would rather support a PS5 that sells 9 million in it's first year, than debase themselves by moving to the switch if it sold 30 million in the same timeframe.

This is in regards to Japan and the Switch, and the concept of their core platform, they aren't moving from PS4 to Switch. People need to realize that PC is just an auxillary platform that these companies put their games on for bonus sales, and in Japan PC is a miniscule platform.

You're talking like gaming is a necessity. Gaming is a luxury. Without the titles to prop up the PS5, the overwhelming majority of Japanese won't buy it just because it exists lol.
>third parties
You mean 3rd party AAAs. 3rd party AA space is already occupied by Nintendo because more freedom and less censorship. Strange I know.
Japanese gamers aren't all that hungry about 3rd party AAAs. One because they can't play those on the go, 2 they're expensive, and 3 there's such a long wait time between good AAA exclusives and Japanese gamers don't play COD, FIFA, and shit like that.

No, they have third party A/B/Indie, some AA, but they aren't the core of AA in Japan, and AAA is the big third party in Japan.
Japanese will buy PS5 entirely because of software, because almost none of the games I listed are coming to Switch, and core Japanese gamers will be looking to play them, just look at Famitsu most wanted lists, in spite of the Switch almost doubling the PS4, PS4 games are always at the top, even ones that dominate sales charts like Animal Crossing, and this is that Japanese core, and it's Playstation centric.

DVD player status and sold in garbage bins in SEA with gameshark attached
>PS3
Sony had to endure billions of dollars in losses and sell for extra years in order to just overtake the 360's numbers
>PS4
Nintendo and Microsoft shooting themselves in the foot

Sales don't matter when they don't translate into profit. But we're talking about Japan only so your list isn't even related to the topic.

What's the cope going to be when PS5 outsells all of them?
>>
>>525323886
>all those "core" games came out on the ps4
>ps4 is still the second worst sony selling console right next to the vita
Can't wait to see you sperg out in the Famitsu threads.

>>525323970
Even their mainstream games have some kind of sex appeal or 'problematic' elements in them that makes porting games to PS systems more annoying or outright not allowed. Plenty of devs aren't even playing ball with Sony now
>>
>>525324012
Don't forgot the ps3 was also the cheapest blu-ray player when it came out. Most blu-ray players at the the time were $800-$1200 dollars.
>>
>>525324241
Have they censored Yakuza yet?
>>
>>525324012
>DVD player status and sold in garbage bins in SEA with gameshark attached

lol the PS2 has a better library than any shitendo console could ever dream of
>>
>>525323886
>PS5 has those titles though
Yes I know. I'm not disputing this point. I'm disputing what you said about Japanese gamers having to buy the PS5 just because those big AAA 3rd party titles are going to be there. Last of Us 2 didn't even make a dent in Japan, and that game was hyped for a decade.
>and core Japanese gamers will be looking to play them
Core Japanese gamers are getting increasingly mad at Sony for censoring their AA games though. I'm not joking.
>PS4 games are always at the top, even ones that dominate sales charts like Animal Crossing
What's the point of lying blatantly?
>>
>>525324131
These are irrelevant points, the PS5 could do 6 million lifetime in Japan and the Switch could do 30 million, 5x the PS5, and big third parties will continue to support the PS5 over the Switch. This could extend to worldwide with the PS5 struggling to meet 60 million units, and the Switch surpassing 200 million, and no change would occur.
>>
>>525324365
Yes. there's some stuff in 3 that was changed.

>ps5 has 0 sales
Oh no no no
>>
>>525324069
Talking Japan only? Not worried at all. Jim Ryan should suck dicks in Shibuya to even dream of outselling PS4 numbers.
Worldwide? That price point is a bit dodgy especially in Fifaland.
>>
>>525324440
And those third parties will still also release their games on PC.

>>525290473
No it won't it's this gens Mobile Monster Hunter. What the fuck are you smoking?

Just like before when MH Tri was the Wii primary console one and the PSP had the mobile ones.

Then after that gen PS4 got World and 3DS had Monster Hunter Generations aka Cross.

Now we're going to get MHW : World 2 or whatever it's going to be called on PS5/Xbox and Rise will be the portable one.

in my mind that is my justice she is shooting out

The most ridiculous thing they ever did was not put a UHD Blu Ray drive in the PS4 Pro. Doing shit like that has consistently worked.

>the last of us 2
No retard, I'm talking about games like Resident Evil, Monster Hunter World, Final Fantasy, the games that core Japanese gamers actually do buy, the games that will drive them to the PS5, they aren't getting PCs, and these games aren't coming to Switch, so in order to get games from this vast group of high selling titles they will buy a PS5, there is no way around this for them.

>>525325570
Not only that but his expression.
>>
>>525323603
it's crazy that the switch already jumped past the NES and may jump two more places past the ps3 this time next year
>>
>>525325835
He looks fucking ridiculous.

>>525325697
>he thinks anyone still cares about FF in Japan
>ignores MH Switch
I do give you RE though.
>>
>>525325697
So what's the excuse gonna be when World 2 can't outsell Rise in Japan?
>FF
Under Jim Ryan? Censored.
>RE
Sure.
>>
>>525286390
Give me a name
>>
>>525326383
>1 million units is nothing
It is, but FF sells best outside of Japan, these games are never coming to nintendo hardware, ever again.

>>525326727
World 2 will do at least 5x Rise's sales, which will be lucky to get 1 million units sold outside of Japan
>Censored.
Irrelevant
