some one slapped some sense in them, thats what changed.
Who here thinks Killzone Battfiled and COD make sense as the only major launch titles, for japan.
But this is a consequence of Sonys new focus and direction. It is up to Sony to decide which games they develop if they would not spam out hundrets of generic Shooters but instead let one of their Japanes developers finally make a sequel to Legend of Dragoon or some new JRPG IP than they could easily launch way earlier in Japan. The big problem is that Sony gives a crap about the japanes market and with their actions they influence the importance of console gaming in japan as a whole in a negative way.
