99% of Asian households eat rice two to three times per day. I don't think that's true for the typical American household. I've gotten along fine without one for the almost 30 years I've been cooking.

Just to play devil's advocate here, my rice cooker also does multiple things in a set it and forget it kind of way. But my pressure cooker does it much, much faster, plus many more things than can my rice cooker.

That being said, the rice cooker is foolproof, and doesn't need to be watched. The pressure cooker demands more of my attention (but not vey much more). both are useful tools. If time is an issue, I'll use the PC to cook the rice. Otherwise, I'll use the RC, both because it's a foolproof operation, and it frees up burners for other parts of the meal.
