Miyamoto: American devs creating more “unique products” than Japan devs
“I think America has always been better at creating unique products. In Japan, the technology required to create videogames tends to be concentrated in the bigger corporations. Here in the United States, you have these independent developers who have managed to get the skills and the training and the development, and also have managed to get access to the technology and the hardware needed to develop it. They’re able to let their own personality and their own kind of unique interests really flourish in the games that they’re creating.” – Shigeru Miyamoto
Wow, those are quite powerful words from Mr. Miyamoto. However, while I do believe American developers have indeed created some excellent titles, the gaming industry would be lackluster without input from the Japanese creators.
