Video Game Market Japan: Still Shrinkin’

Hey look, a typical display of DVDs of Japanese musical idol groups, the kind of thing you see all over Japan:
Tsutaya “Game” Floor

Except, something doesn’t feel quite right… Oh yeah! This is the bottom floor of the Tsutaya in Shibuya. The floor that used to be dedicated totally to video games. Demo kiosks, large displays, the works. The whole floor. All video games.

Now, not so much. But don’t worry, the games still manage to keep the other half of the floor occupied. See, right there behind the Used DVDs:

Maybe next year video games will get a nice cozy spot next to the old VHS and audio tape overstock.
