Honor and pride is a huge thing in Japanese culture- so it makes sense that they would also be extremely proud of their local corporations, especially those that they imported worldwide, and which became major players in world economy. And it seems that they do, and it also seems that two major video game giants, both of them Japanese, rank very high up on this list.
The business firm Risk Monster recently published a survey titled “Japanese Companies to be Proud of in Front of the World”, and the results are very impressive, no matter where you stand in the console wars:
While Sony’s result is great indeed, Nintendo’s is even more impressive- Sony makes a wide range of products, video games only being a very small and not even the most visible part of its product portfolio. Nintendo subsists only on video games and related products. To see it rank that high and beat so many multi faceted corporations and conglomerates must be especially heartening for the 125 year old company.
