The most important game event on the planet has drawn to a close, so it's time to figure out the best of show. Here are Next-Gen's top 20 from Tokyo Game Show, effectively the best Japanese and Asian games in development right now…
PS3 got PWNED BIG TIME! LOL I guess Microsoft might just sell a few more in Japan, like a couple million or so.
you could just have easily written "I guess Microsoft might just sell a few more in Japan, like a couple million or so."
how ds, ps2 is next-gen? also where is FF13 (does the whole list only have playable games if yes then ok ff13 rightly so didnt made the list, i think same reason for mgs4..)
Live with It!!!
and where is motorstorm, resistance, warhawk and ridge racer aswell? i think this article is biased because blue dragon could not of come first i mean its an overhyped rpg, i think oblivion, ff and white knight and fable are better rpgs also kingdom hearts.
PS3 got 5 in the top 20 while 360 got like 8. i'm trying to figure out how thats "PWNAGE" when a) this list consists primarily of playable games (hence the absence of notables such as FFXIII, GOW and MGS4), and b) this list is comprised of a site's OPINION?
despite the flak that i'm gonna get from the 360 fanboy crowd, i'm gonna make an opinion that Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey will eventually find their way to the PS3 unless Microsoft buys Mistwalker (have they?). the 360 doesn't sell well enough for Mistwalker to bring in profits from Japan from their games, and unlike with Tecmo and Capcom (with their respective IPs Ninja Gaiden, DOA and Dead Rising) they won't bring in profits from America because the US 360 demograph don't like/appreciate rpgs as much as the PS2/PS3 fanbase. just an opinion. now let the slamming and flamming commence, unless Dusty gets involved.
Can make it's way onto the Xbox 360? The word Infringement come to mind. But maybe you know something I don't. They will also be localizing this game in various languages (as per article) and I doubt they'll be doing that for [email protected]
Sony funded L.A. Noire, and thats multi-platform.
Fact: " Microsoft today announced that Hironobu Sakaguchi, video game legend and president of Mistwalker game studio, has joined with Microsoft(R) Game Studios to develop role-playing game (RPG) video games exclusively for the next- generation Xbox(R) video game platform. Sakaguchi is best known as the creator of the "Final Fantasy" franchise, which has sold more than 60 million units worldwide, and was executive vice president in charge of game development at Square Enix Co. Ltd. until February 2001."
Link to the fact: http://games.slashdot.org/a... Do you honestly think that MS pumped a ton of money into Mistwalker basically funding the creation of the development house, signed them to a publishing deal, but left open the possibility that Mistwalker could take the 2 primary games that MICROSOFT funded and port them to the PS3?
Come on people, let's get real. The game is 360 exclusive and will remain that way. Just accept that as fact. They are getting paid and staffed by microsoft, microsoft is actually doing alot of the game code, it is called outsourcing, mistwalker is mainly devoted to level design etc...
was being funded by Sony but then dropped. Hence the reason it's now multi-platform.
my bad. didn't know that. i stand corrected.
No wrong done. I learn something new every day from peps on this site.
good job MS, gues they learned a lesson. now let's see if it translates into sales...
I find it funny how a TOKYO TOP 20, is 360 biased according to the Sony fanboys.
If blue dragon, Lost Odyssey, and lost planet are as big of a hits as they seem to be over there, we'll see when it launches. How much 360 sales spike I mean. Atleast microsoft's grabbed up some great jap. developers to give the people what they want.
im really looking forward to White Knight. it's a Japanese style RPG with real-time battle. none of that old turn-base stuff. if you haven't seen the HD trailer, go check it out at http://www.gametrailers.com... on the HD video section. Lost Odessy and Blue Dragon are interesting too.
The fact that ps3 got 5 out of the top 9 titles seems to indicate it didn't get "pwned."
Gets top honors!
MS got 3 in the top 5, Sony got 1.
Lets not forget that I saw alot of DS titles out there too. Plus one that's going to be just like ff tactics from the ps1. Which in my own opinion should be the #1 spot cuz that game was just insanly awesome. Don't tell me I'm wrong cuz well how can I be wrong about my own thought
First, the PS3 got titles on the list. Second, nearly all reports say that Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey had the longest lines and warmest receptions. Thank god that most gamers aren't fanboys. If a game is great, the game is great, no matter what system it's on. Lost Odyssey and Blue Dragon look great for their genre, a genre that Japanese gamers happen to love, and are made by one of Japan's most famed developers. Is it really all that surprising that these games are high on the list?
Caps Lock -
Motorstorm, Resistance, Warhawk, and Ridge Racer 7 have not gotten the warmest reception from the press when played. Warhawk was made fun of at E3 and really hasn't shook that feeling yet. Ridge Racer is.....well, Ridge Racer, no matter how good it looks. Hardly any of the general press that has played Resistance has been all that impressed, saying it's OK, but just your run-of-the-mill shooter. Besides looking good, not much else great from the general press has been said about Motorstorm either. Of course this doesn't include fanboys, as I'm talking about the press in general. There are other PS3 games that have been played that are getting much more fanfair. Not everyone bases their opinion of how a game plays solely on looks. Anyway, I'm not surprised they didn't make this list, but it is just one person's list.
Very nice unbiased thought process there. This list is just that a list but it's about what the people there thought of it. Meaning they waiting in line for it and accually played the game. Not just look at screens like we have.
from gamers at TGS neither of those games received that much attention, whereas with the press Resistance and Motorstorm both got good previews. RR7 was mixed, with Warhawk not being so good so far. where everyone seems to agree on is White Knight Story, Lair, DMC4, MGS4 and Heavenly Sword. this is all saying quite a bit, considering that this is PS3's launch period. and while i myself am heavily interested in Lost Planet and Blue Dragon (not too sure about Lost Odyssey just yet...just seems like a FF rip-off) these were the only three 360 games that grabbed the Japanese attention. otherwise the 360's appearance at TGS received bad reviews from gamers. for my part i am highly interested in Fable 2, Bioshock, Halo 3 and GOW on the 360, but these games don't hold as much interest with Japanese gamers.
I agree with Zypher I am really looking forward to Lost planet and while Lost odyssey looks absolutely great I have no idea what the actual game will play like. And it does look like FF but is that a bad thing? Only the reviews might be biased.
there all good games. this is just someones opinion i value that.
i never thought i see the day a xbox game be on top at a japanese game show i knew once more japanese style games come they will see it has more japanese dev support and change there mind about the lack of there type of games but never thought it would be 1st just like i said.but anyway im not going to bash anyone but i remmeber someone yesterday say the 360 got owned at TGS?
...according to IGN and other sites 360 got owned. Funny how xboxfanboys say this sites are biased, but when there is 1 site that states otherwise, it's the truth.
An xbox game din't come on top of a japanese show, it came on top of this site's rating ;-)
Link please, I personally have not read that, all I have read is the 360 did extremely well.
Yeah send me a link too you little prick! Sony fans just don't want to admit that 360 just has more to offer and a better line up of games down the road! What.... does Sony now think that graphics are eveything I mean come on people like fun and 360 offers better graphics and games that are fun with Live! Just wait until XNA really starts taking off and artists start doing things on 360 and PC that we can't even dream of kind of like quantum physics! I read and watched the show and must say that 360 took TGS hands down even though it was really Sony's show! How can the underdog go to your house and take all the attention away from you on your freakin birthday! Now that's funny and Sony's in trouble big time because MS aint playing! XO6 baby here it comes!
And the overall view is that while Microsoft slightly improved their image with Blue Dragon and Lost Planet, the PS3 stole the show.
The 360 showed off traditional RPGs that didn't really attempt to break away from the stylistic and gameplay cliches of the RPG genre, as beautiful as they were, but that Lost Planet was a fun title in multiplayer mode. Other than that though they didn't have much to show. The fact that Lost Odyssey has random battles didn't go over too well with most people. Gears was supposed to be shown, but there was some issue with the blood/gore factor so MS couldn't display it.
The PS3 on the other hand just went all out with 30 different playable titles, and games like Motorstorm, Resistance, and Devil May Cry really showed off the system's potential. They had Sonic, Gundam, MGS, Warhawk, Lair, FFXIII, F1, Heavenly Sword (despite being the E3 build, people still liked it since it was their first time playing), White Knight (which wiped the floor with Mistwalker's titles) and so on. The price drop and inclusion of HDMI for the 20GB PS3 really got people's attention, despite the VERY boring keynote. Keynotes are naturally boring, but that one little announcement at the end made it worth the snoozin'.
The crazy thing is that Sony, despite showing a lot at TGS, still has a ton of secrets that haven't been revealed yet. From what I've read, there was a new Heavenly Sword demo that was built for TGS, but it never made it to the show floor due to a random bug that would sometimes crash the system. The team was pretty disappointed, but they might show their progress at the Sony Conference in mid-October.
Killzone, the biggest weapon Sony has in its arsenal, isn't slated to be revealed until Spring of next year. Though, depending on what Microsoft does at X06, they might be forced to reveal it a little earlier. There's rumors that Halo and Gears will be playable at the event, but you never know.
Sony doesn't want Killzone to interfere with the marketing campaign for Resistance, which is going to be huge. Wipeout and Socom haven't been revealed either, though both are supposedly in development. Some final things about the system such as the possible inclusion of PS1/2 memory card adaptors, and whether the systems will include just AV cables, or have Component Cables as well.
What points to Sony have a lot of secrets left over? I really dont think there is much more to say. I dont think the 360 has any secrets left, but i guess we will find out about that in the next few days, and the PS3 within a month and a half.
Honestly, I wish more games would be multi-platform so we can stop all this pointless arguing. I mean there are wars going on, people dying of starvation, people without homes...and we are sitting here arguing about whether the PS3 or the Xbox360 is better. (The arguments aren't even intelligent.) Anyway, more games need to be multi-platform anyway except for the big exclusives like Lost Planet, Gears of War, etc. I'm all for discussion but this pointless war between people that can't even write a complete sentence correctly needs to stop. Non-psychotic discussion is what this site needs about the positives and negatives of a certain piece of news. It doesn't need the pointless remarks made by people like and I quote:
"You PS3 fans are pathetic and all same! When are you going to realize that the 360 is a better platform for all games period! You think that your TGS proved a point to us 360 fans, well think again because we know it's just a matter of time before MS shows some stuff that will shut up you for ever hating fanboys! "
which will be followed with a similar response by a Sony fan.
Just stop pointlessly arguing over stuff that doesn't even matter. Buy the console that you want and be down with it.
Just so you know both MS and Sony both have things they have yet to let out to the public! Also we can all go back and forth on which system had the better showing and to be honest with you why should it matter and who cares! It was a good show and thats pretty much all we need to know! I look forward to good games on both consoles and thats really all that matters to me!
I know, Sony's gonna announce they started producing consoles just shy of 1.5 months.
I am a high school student and I have a job at dillions working 20hrs a week for $8.25 I have to buy gas and other stuff a teen might need but recently i have been putting a little money toward a PS3 (I have a 360 and the Wii doesnt intrest me to much ) i have $325 should i just get the 500 600 version of the ps3 if 500 i could get extra games and accessorys or the 600 one and just one game i dont know which one is beter
Sounds like the 20GB ($500 model) will be best for you. Unless you have a serious need for Wi-Fi, SD card, or Flash card inputs, there's not much of a reason to get the $600 version. The $500 version has everything that you'll ever need, and if you ever need more hard drive space you can always swap in a bigger one later on (2.5" SATA, brand doesn't matter).
Good luck saving up. =]
That doesn't seem to make any sense knowing that the PS3 isn'e pawned at all and the 360 is lol I'mean give me a break this retarded moron is delusional thinking that the PS3 is pawned when in reality the 360 is doing worse there in Japan are you that dumb in the head C4? or were you playing russion roulette? again and got shot in the head with a Cougar magnum lol.
he could say the same thing about you and your 3 bubbles. Take a hint, and stop posting cursing and nonsense posts.
okay here's the part where you say my posts are nonsense but then back it up with nothing.
Just stop already. Your posts are useless, we understand that you do not like the 360. Are you even capable of submitting a post that makes sense or relevant to the topic at hand?
Knowing how stupid your facts are knowing you don't know about the facts about the PS3 and the 360 and the Wii for that matter so that and for one thing? who really gives a crap? about 3 bubbles that I have you "ugly douche?" knowing your probably the only person that cares about them you dumbass.
title is soooo misleading.. why didnt it just say TGS top 20... why must it says next gen top 20.. TGS top 20 is more appropriate since its included PS2 and DS title..
Going by this quote from the site
"...Here are Next-Gen’s top 20 from Tokyo Game Show, effectively the best Japanese and Asian games in development right now… "
The reason MGS4 and GOW are not on the list is probably due to the fact this list is the top 20 of Japanese and asian titles (basically, the games that are loved by the japanese) YOu know what they like, all big robot things and rpg type games. You're probably right about FFXII, it wasn't playable so it wasnt put on the list. But was Blue Dragon playable?
Blue dragon was playable. That how come so many people line up for it.
