Japan accounts for only 6% of game industry sales

My, how the world of video games has changed. Remember when video games used to be absolutely huge business in Japan? You might think that gaming is still massive in Japan, but that’s simply not true anymore.

Gaming has become much bigger in both Europe and North America. Shockingly, Japan only accounts for 6% of game industry sales. That’s why Capcom has made such a bold move to give North American/European gamers what they want.

If you’d like to hear more about Capcom’s approach to the Western side of the market, you can see a D.I.C.E. keynote summary here.
