| I find it mildly amusing that some American kids proudly support a Japanese made games console over an American one; screw the American worker! |
The American worker and overall economy benefits either way....
- the retail base is here the United States (Walmart, Amazon, etc.)
- the shipping companies and storage services in the United States will make boat loads of money
- the biggest marketing firms on Madison Avenue (New York, United States) will no doubt line their pockets either way
- the global financial services industry will benefit from anything involving large volumes of money (Wall Street, New York, United States)
- Apple and Google (American-based companies) would potentially get into the console market if these systems prove to be the future of home entertainment. They would have to.
- From the plastics to the computer chips; these consoles both use much of the same type of hardware and software. Behind all of this marketing and fanboyism BS, Microsoft and Sony contact many of the same suppliers from Silicon Valley in CA to Research Triangle Park in NC.
- Many of game publishers and developers are based in the United States. Including R*.
...besides, the Japanese economy needs all of the help it can get.
