The Japanese PC scene is almost nonexistent.

As much as I like Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey, they each sold around 1 million. Turn based jrpgs don’t have the same appeal as they used to. Better off buying Konamis dormant IPs and make a studio around them.

Konami will never sell Metal Gear due to the money they make from the pachinko sales.


Castlevania cause they still make money from the re-releases and the partnership with Netflix for the show.

Silent Hill no idea but Suikoden would be the only other notable IP they have but all of the Suikoden games sold less or almost the same as than Blue Dragon or Lost Odyssey.

Konami is not going to sell anything period. Unless the gambling industry over there collapses and they become desperate, just licensing and re-releasing old titles make more than enough money for a pittiance of a cost.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Come join The 2018 Obscure Game Monthly Review Thread.

Yep, the post you quoted was just me pointing out the same.

In Japan I have seen more games for sale than Xbox, so xbox is non-existent

1. This is off-topic, JP games sell well outside of JP so it’s still worth it to MS to fill that niche 

2. The Japanese weren’t interested in Xbox long before their PC approach



Otogi was published by SEGA not Microsoft.



Bite my shiny metal cockpit!

Blue Dragon for Sure, they should hire Bluepoint to remake that game on Series X (before Sony Acquires them)
