Sony: Japan more open to Western games like Uncharted


Sony worldwide president Shuhei Yoshida thinks that Japan is more open to Western games now. He cites games like Uncharted: Golden Abyss being one of the top preordered games for Vita in Japan as a sign of this change. 

Japanese people traditionally have a strong local preference, particularly with the manga style look of characters that they love," he said to the EU PlayStation Blog. "But as technology and presentation advances in games like Uncharted and Call of Duty, they are rightly seeing their quality."

Uncharted being near the top of the preorder heap is impressive when you consider that the Vita launched with 24 titles in Japan. It was only second to the new Hot Shots Golf title.

Yoshida gives Harrison Ford a bit of credit, though: "Also, it helps that SCEJ paid a lot of money to get Harrison Ford to appear on TV playing Uncharted!"
