Keiji Inafune Expresses Discontent With Capcom Management

A portion of an NY Times interview with Inafune...

NY: Can you do what you want to do at Capcom?

KI: Iíd like to think so, but itís becoming more difficult. Iím strong-arming a lot of things through, but Iím not sure how much more I can do. I donít share the same management vision as the company. I want to make games that travel overseas, but Capcom hasnít taken globalization seriously. I want to study how Westerners live, and make games that appeal to them.

Iíve been fighting for many years now to change these things one by one. But the business side is resisting change. They think developers are stupid and donít understand business. Thatís why I canít be on the board of directors. Thatís the difference between Capcom and Nintendo. At Nintendo, 80 percent of the board is from development. At Capcom, itís zero. All the business side cares about is protecting their own interests.

I'm not surprised to hear this. I've lost faith in Capcom, they just seem to be cashing in rather than making quality.

Re: Keiji Inafune Expresses Discontent With Capcom Management

I think the problem is not so much that Japanese can't make games anymore, but that Western tastes in games have changed since the 1990s.

Yeah, because EA and Activision never, ever do the same thing over and over again. Get real.

Quote:
"A budget for a blockbuster game in the United States can approach $50 million, a figure few Japanese developers can now match."
This is the bigger problem. Japanese studios have the disadvantage of having to localize their games for the Wes, as well as manufacture, and distribute, which has added cost. The obsession with HD over here doesn't help either.
It used to be that you could develop a game, and mediocre sales would cover the development cost. No more.
