We know that when he's got good things to say, he'll say it. He was very vocal about his respect for Bungie. But when what he sees is less than impressive, we now know he can be quite harsh about it. Keiji Inafune
, father of Mega Man and Capcom
's head of R&D, was less than impressed with what he saw at TGS 09, and this led him to believe that the Japanese gaming industry is finished.
"Personally when I looked around [at] all the different games at the TGS floor," Capcom's Ben Judd translated Inafune, "I said 'Man, Japan
is over. We're done. Our game industry is finished.'" Perhaps realizing that his comment encompasses his own company, or perhaps it was all a set-up for this next comment, Inafune-san then uses Capcom's upcoming titles as "kick-ass" titles coming from Japan.
Big words, especially coming from such a prolific developer. But what do you guys think? Is the Mecca of gaming losing it's luster? Sound off below.
