Why most Japanese developers don't make their games on PC?

Especially games that go mutli but not on PC.

All the sexy games are on PC though.

Have you been to Comiket?

AFAIK 99% of the games there are PC-only to the point I've seen port-begging from the consolitis.

Very few people game on PC in Japan.
That's why most japanese PC games are digital novels. They probably run on anything.

Because the market for PCs over there is pretty small. In addition, the gaming market over there has been focused on consoles for decades, so many of the devs have little to no experience working on PC. In short, there is little interest.

Well, Revengeance and dark souls got to PC, dark souls 2 soon as well.

I think we're gonna see more and more Japanese games on PC due to the standard PC architecture of the PS4

btw, Korea was the hotspot for Starcraft, not Japan.

They are starting to see the benefits and square enix said they are strongly considering bringing Final fantasy new games to pc. As big devs jump to pc you will see more and more japanese devs make games for pc. In this day and age they can't afford not to make pc games because its a pretty big market now.
