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.
