That is also slowly changing now, with both the NDS and PS3 being wholly or partially region independent.

I mean, if you go there, games like GTA and Call of Duty don't exist because, to be frank, they think our games are shit.

I know the point you're making, but just to be pedantic i'd like to point out that in the month of November, according to vgcharts, GTA4 is the 15th best selling game in Japan. Soooooo... There is SOME room for our games over there, but yeah the market is very different.

yeah, they're mostly considered to not be a fan of shooters... but since the 360's price drop it has been selling quite well in Japan.

They are fans of a different type of shooter. Ones that involve unloading your weapon all over underaged animated girls.
