With the world's attention moved to Western developers (much to my dismay), Japan's shift to handhelds and rising development costs, don't expect to see JRPGs make any sort of comeback on home consoles, save for the efforts of Square, Atlus, Tri-Ace and a few others.
Heck, PS3 and Xbox 360 were already too risky for a lot of niche developers, next generation systems will only exacerbate the issue, though 3DS and PSP2 will likely remain a safe haven for the time being.
Somehow developers like NIS, Gust, Compile Heart etc. manage to stay afloat on current gen systems, despite many of their console games being some of the worst JRPGs I've ever seen.
Luckily I'm one of the folks that still likes what Square is doing, so I always have Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts, etc. That and Mistwalker, plus the others I mentioned above. Bring on Resonance of Fate II, Tri-Ace!
