I mean the customers. Japanese have a big sense of brand loyalty. The same thing happened when they tried to bring the Tales series to Nintendo systems.
The bad business decision would be to not release it in the west as westerners dont have such a strong sense of brand loyalty.
I'm actually a bit surprised that Monster Hunter managed to make the transfer. But that was like grabbing the japanese by the balls. lol
Huh ? Isn´t Symphonia the bestselling console Tales game (according to our numbers ?) And Graces really doesn´t count because the initial release had gamebreaking bugs out the wazoo so that bad word of mouth killed the potential....and the DS games did quite well (compared to the far superior Vita remakes ) ?
I don´t see how you can draw this conclusion !
as for Yakuza HD: Very unfortunate, but expected...the game didn´t do so hot on the PS3 ....aaaand the old late port on the WiiU was destined to sell even less...oh well
