Is Microsoft the only non-Japanese company that makes video game consoles now?

It seems like all these other companies that make video game consoles are Japanese like Nintendo, Sony, and even Sega used too. But Microsoft is the only one leading the charge with the Xbox 360 brand in the Western world. Atari stopped making consoles decades ago, and Apple, well, the iPad and iPhone aren't really true gaming consoles anyways. Why aren't we seeing more Western companies like Microsoft creating video game consoles?

Because everytime they try, they fail miserably.

Because they don't have money to dump into things like MS does.

its a solnot topic but im genuinely interested in the topic title.
anyway..i guess you could count nvidia as a video game developer too since theyre working on the shield, and the company behind ouya as well.
