At a Tokyo Event, Sony Turned Western Games into Video Game Ambassadors

Kotaku - Today, Sony held the "World Game Project" in Akihabara, in which the electronics giant showed off twenty PS3 and PS Vita games. These titles were developed outside Japan, and the point of this hands-on event was to give Japanese gamers a chance to check out titles they might not otherwise and maybe remind them that some big Japanese franchises are now being farmed out to Western devs. (PS Vita, PS3, Sony)

This is just awesome, this type of things need to happen more often.

Good for the Japanese!

Now what about all those awesome Japanese games that either never cross the ocean, or do--but don't get any advertising or publicity, and get panned critically for being Japanese? Let's do something about that on our side of the puddle, eh?

I actually gave Kotaku a click, expecting to read something, only to find something that was put together in about 15 minutes.
