Why aren't RPGs as popular on the 360 as the PS3?

What is it about the Xbox 360 that makes RPGs less popular on this system than others?

Simplisticly....probably due to JRPG"s not being as popular, there are some great american rpgs, skyrim, mass effect, dragons age, but not near the number or varity I think. I have both so fine, but wouldn't mind seeing more rpgs in general, they tend to be my favorite genre.

Do you have a source to qualify such a statement or are you basing this on your perception?

EDIT: Asking the topic creator this question.

jrpgs suck and have for a good long while, wrpgs are pretty good, and open gameplay up in a variety of different ways that werent possible or tried in jrpgs.

...why is everyone talking about JRPGs, when the TC never created a distinction?

the distinction there is in the title. Xbox just for what ever reason doesn't seem to get alot of JRPG's, what we expecting 300 new studios to make american rpgs?

I believe you are mistaken, TC.
Western RPGs are much more popular on 360. Bethesda games, for example.

Yes this. Most if not all RPG's made outside Japan sell better on 360. All RPG's that are made in Japan sell better on PS3. A Japanese system. No great mystery their. Also most weeaboos that live outside Japan have PS3's because again, it is a Japanese system so they expect tons of Japanese weirdness to be released on their like NISA games.
