Pardon my ignorance, but why are Famitsu scores not counted on metacritic?

"We covered them years ago, but so many of the games they reviewed never released in the west. Not a great fit in that respect."

That feels like one of the most weak sauce justifications I ever heard. I mean, they just could take only the reviews for games released in the west. But even more: why restrict your platform on western games only, including games released in other parts of the world would make your platform internationally more relevant. Restricting yourself that way makes you ask why they feel it important to inject that western bias.

The suspicion though is always that Famitsu too often disagreed with more western review outlets.
