I'm getting sick-tired with this narrative that games that have good stories and photorealistic graphics aren't "real games" but "interactive movies". It's like in the early 2000 where anything should have great and top-notch graphics otherwise it didn't deserve to be played, only in reverse

No, I am saying that Movie-like games are not mass appealing globally. Playstation used to have diversity in genres. They were like Nintendo right now, doing a bit of everything instead of focusing on one thing. I'm not saying these games are bad, I'm saying that they are focusing solely on treating their Playstation brand the same way as their movie studio. If Morbius was not a meme they would probably made a morbius game by now.

Japanese devs are having their best moment right now because now the market allows them to sell their games worldwide. Internet and digital media abolished barriers that used to restrict JP developers from only selling their games in Japan. Looks at how much JP franchises enjoyed breakthrough success thanks to this in recent years, Nintendo is actually the console make that plays the LEAST impact for third-party JP devs as we see those devs still skipping Nintendo as long as they can afford even if this cost sales in Japan they can make it elsewhere. 

That is true. I am saying Playstation is lost its appeal to asian market most will just go for Steam and other places (Game pass) but the appeal for Playstation is that its a console not a PC. Nintendo got that covered now, but Playstation used to be the console to own for most video games in asia.
