Japanese Games Market Has To Catch Up

Well, it's good to know the West are dominating the games industry and all that jazz, but Lost Planet 2 and Resident Evil 5 producer Jun Takeuchi has said if the Japanese industry doesn't pick up the pace, it's doomed:
“If the Japanese games industry doesn’t evolve and simply maintains its current status quo, I really don’t think we have a hope in hell."

“Drastically innovative ideas are needed – and quickly – to equal or exceed the Western games industry.”

“Personally when I looked around [at] all the different games at the TGS floor. I said ‘Man, Japan is over. We’re done. Our game industry is finished.”
Times have changed. The same old hour long Sega arcade titles on a home console just don't cut it any more.
