Shinji Mikami "Japanese Developers Are Less Willing to Take Risks"

Speaking with about the different strategies employees in the East and Western markets, Mikami said, “Games have become big projects, requiring a lot of resources both to create and market. Games have become more risky. 

Shinji Mikami said: "Japanese companies don’t take those kinds of risks like Western developers do. In the past, what the Capcom president [Kenzo Tsuijimoto] told me was that game development is becoming more and more expensive and many Japanese publishers won’t be investing $30 million or more in a game. If we can invest $30 million into a game, we can win."

"As for the organizational structure of companies, I think it would be good if companies would be more flexible about incorporating foreign technologies."
