To Toyota: Geeze, look at Tokyo for Pete's sake, and try fitting vehicles on the crowded streets of your busy business districts like Akihabara and Shibuya (spellings may be off, but they're close I'm sure). People in the city use the speed train systems and what not to get from Point A to Point B in that entire metro area.
Also look over to here. People aren't buying your cars here for looks, they're buying them for fuel economy. In other words, your cars look plain and boring.
(This isn't to say American or European automobiles look any more exciting).
They also need to understand, just as many other business sectors in this country (the U.S. for me) like retailing, have understood after that disaster of a holiday shopping period last year. We're in a period where you're not going to be pocketing billions in cash. Make your cuts, shed your losses and focus on those who will get interested.
Now all that seriousness aside....this is a laugh-aloud moment. These companies complaining and what not how they're losing money, then go around running like headless chickens, unsure of what to do. Sometimes, the 'what to do' is plain Jane obvious.
Then again, I'm just an armchair quarterback with all this business junk. It's just tiring to see people blaming something like video games, when they should probably blame more important reasons. Isn't that why they hire supposed 'professional' analysts and stuff? Or maybe said analysts are also a bunch of off-the-street hackjobs too. Who knows? *shrug*
