Zress is misreading what I said and making uncalled-for assumptions about how I said it. :rolleyes:

Anyway, while I don't think a forum population is good as an exact measure, I do think it's a viable proxy. Especially when we're the second result in Google, right after Wikipedia. It's hardly exact, but it doesn't really argue in favor of a large, untapped market, right now. (If the games and animation imply strong success in Japan, though, there's no reason that couldn't cross over, but it's no guarantee it would, either.)

The Japanese Shinki market is a fairly niche market to begin with (which is part of the reason Shinki are so expensive nowadays). The foreign market is even more niche so, like people here said already, it doesn't make good business sense to go after said foreign market. Add to that the current yen rate, which pretty much seals any chance whatsoever of Konami ever trying to make a comeback in the US market.

Frankly, I'm surprised Konami took so long to unplug the English site but that speaks more to the lack of good management at Konami more than anything else.

You'd find about as much truth on Sakaku as you would in your local tabloid paper. Take anything you read there with a grain of salt. :P
