They shouldn't bite the hand that's fed them for so long. Apology accepted, but they shouldn't let this happen again.

Thank you, senpai Kerotan ^^ I am a so happpeeeeeyyy to have you accept me again. 

Pffft. That was a weak apology by Japanese standards.

Dont get why he would publicly come out and say something along the lines of Sony not being friendly to pubs his size.
So you come out paint that picture, so now pubs your size that reads this think “hmm, maybe i should just deal with nintendo only”.
See when you a big mouth its bad for business for everyone you partner with.

Should have kept some of thoes comments to himself. Not only should he say sorry but also correct the image of Sony he just created in this interview. I mean sony, nin, and ms are only out there looking for the best deals for their platforms. If this is not the case then i would like to know what nin said to him that convinced him to make the deal with nin and he could not go back to sony for a counter offer, you know like how we do in business?

Sony's reign of terror over Japanese developers will soon be over. The Dark Ages are over, time to switch on the light again.

Eh. Probably not. Nintendo has a habit of just not staying in favor with anyone.

Either way, Sony's consoles have been unpopular in Japan since the PS3. It's good news for everyone that Japanese developers can focus on a popular console again. Too many developers were wasting their resources on something like the Vita.

Global market > Japanese market. We'll see a bunch of weird Japanese niche games on Switch, but the important titles will still be PS4.

He is sorry for being caught on what he really wanted to say.
And probably because it involved SNK without their consent.

That was dumb.

Not many businesses can survive by completely ignoring their domestic market.

Besides Monster Hunter World Playstation has lost many (console) exclusives already to the Switch, this trend will only become more noticeable as time goes on. 

Exclusives lost: 

- Valkyria Chronicles

- Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana

- Disgaea 5

- Dragon Quest XI (the UE4 version)

- Dragon Quest Builders 1 & 2

Switch exclusives: 

- The Snack World: Gold Trejares 

- Yokai Watch 4

- Octopath Traveler

- The World Ends With You: Final Remix

- Shin Megami Tensei V

- Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes

- Bayonetta 3

It won't surprise me at all if franchises like Persona will become multi-platform this gen either. It's also only a matter of time before Dragon Ball FigtherZ is announced for Switch.

For the first time ever a From Software game will also come to a Nintendo platform (Dark Souls Remastered).
