America sold as one

Gaming Steve, has noticed that american games sells poorly in Japan, and almost not at all. The only american title that made it into the top 100 list 2005 was 'Ratchet and Clank 4th', a 3D platform action game. No other american game was in the list, and no Xbox title at all... and they only needed to sell 127,680 copies to make it into the list, in other words, no american game except for 'Ratchet & Clank: Up your arsenal' sold over 127,680 copies.

Steve have given this alot of thougth, and over at his blog he's summed up his conclusion, along with the toplists, so don't hesitate to pay him a visit.

Why Do American Games Fail in Japan?
