Japanese Gamers Vote with Feet

Twisted Supreme September 24, 2007 0


News from Arcade Renaissanceweb site team revealed the drastic variances in attendance numbers between the Tokyo Game Show and the Amusement Machine Show the previous week. A 12% rise in attendance at the AM-Show is contrasted by a drop in attendance at TGS; though TGS attracts a much greater number of visitors, a drop in hoped attendance lower than last year, even amongst promises before hand of big expectations. These figures seem to reflect a drop in console game sales in Japan, and increased revenue from amusement business witnessed in financial reports from Sega, Namco, Konami and Taito – against drops in software sales and increased R&D spending to support next-gen platforms.
