Kojima admits defeat?
"If you talk about the war between Japanese developers and those overseas, I acknowledge that we have already lost. The Japanese creators have lost to the European and American creators. Therefore, I always say to my staff, Don't look at the Japanese creators. Look toward the Europeans and Americans when looking at development". -- Hideo Kojima in the newest issue of Game Informer (I hear it has Need For Speed Carbon on the cover but I haven't personally seen it yet).
I personally think Kojima's statement is completely blown out of proportion. I don't think anyone has won the war so to speak but I think it's a good idea for everyone to be aware of what each other is doing. Discuss.
