On the substance of the article, Tecmo comes across pretty poorly. Why were they down last quarter? Well, Dead or Alive 4 for Xbox 360 was delayed and Monster Rancher 5 for PlayStation 2 didn't do well either. Here's an idea: don't sell the same blooming game four or five times in a row. Try something new. This Tokobot might be good, but Tecmo made it for the system just ahead the N-Gage in sales, the sad little PSP.
Faced with these results, what will Tecmo do? Focus on mobile games, online games, and pachinko. You read that right: pachinko. Good luck, guys.
It should be noted that pachinko is a huge business in Japan.
That is all.
It may be a huge business there, but to me it reads like "forget you guys, this videogame stuff is too hard!"
