Japan has historically been a driving force in the world's video game industry, a market estimated to have over one trillion yen in annual sales.
In 1983, Nintendo launched the Nintendo Entertainment System (commonly known as the ""Famicom"") and in 1994, Sony Computer Entertainment released their first PlayStation.
Japan has always been at the forefront of industry trends for console and mobile games and now has its own unique social gaming industry, as represented by the platforms Mobage, GREE and LINE. The popularity of this new market was fueled by game design, unique but simple, well-executed casual games and advanced data mining.
Moreover, at present the fast-growing market of smartphone games is gaining support from Japanese users, however the issue of more expensive billing rates has become a focal point of discussion.
