Originally starting in 1996, one of the greatest gaming conventions in the world, second only to E3, has just kicked off for another year on this 19th of September. The Tokyo Game Show, featuring all the latest in gaming goodness, features all the greats such as the obvious Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo all against each other showing off their new shiny wares.It’s pretty similar to E3, but with one key difference.
At TGS (Tokyo Game Show), general punters are allowed to attend, therefore bringing much larger numbers, while straying off the more exclusive, intimate press conferences and announcements we see at E3. With two new consoles just around the corner this TGS is looking to be a barrel of fun. Still underway, all eyes are on Nintendo and Sony, the pioneers of next-gen with the up-coming Wii and Playstation 3. Getting alot of attention are the big titles such as Devil May Cry 4, Metal Gear Solid 4, and the recently announced Ninja Gaiden for PS3 (a port of the XBOX Ninja Gaiden, with some new goodies).
There’s heaps to be discovered this year. Unfortunately my budget doesn’t support a trip to Tokyo right now, but fortunately I provide you with delicious links to the many gaming sites who all have some nifty coverage going on.
I’ll write up a summary of the hot announcements once TGS is over, as it is still pouring out far too much for me to keep up with.
Until then, I suggest:
