In the past, the Eastern Console format was arguably more prolific and hence more popular than the Western Computer format, with even some Computer games mimicking Console ones. Lately, however, the Computer format is becoming more popular in the West, rivaling (and sometimes even trumping) the Console format in popularity, partly due to progresses in technology making arguably more immersive games, which in turn has led to rising budgets. As a result, many Console development teams nowadays focus more on handhelds due to lower budgets. Other, particularly larger Eastern development teams such as Creator/MonolithSoft, Creator/{{Atlus}}, and Creator/FromSoftware have responded by incorporating elements of computer [=RPGs=] into their works, creating a hybrid of both sides of the equation.

Also, many TurnBasedStrategy games are done in "Console RPG style" and are often referred to as "Strategy [=RPGs=]" or "{{Tactical RPG}}s", though more recent examples of the sub-genre have also incorporated RealTimeStrategy elements. In contrast to the traditional turn-based format above (represented by Dragon Quest and Final Fantasy), tactical [=RPG=] allow more freedom of movement in battle, while the narratives are also more likely to be non-linear, with strategic decisions often having an impact on the way the story unfolds. This tactical RPG style has traditionally been dominated by Japan, though there have been some Western [=RPGs=] also attempting it.

* Dice rolls are always hidden and stats are given as arbitrary numbers. Sometimes dice rolls aren't used at all, and fights are based on your stats versus the enemy's stats alone.
