Playable Xbox One Titles at Tokyo Game Show Announced: Titanfall, Ryse and Forza 5 Lead the Charge

Microsoft Japan just announced the Xbox One and Xbox 360 titles that will be playable at Tokyo Game Show in response to the rather rich PS4 line-up that Sony will bring at its own booth. (Forza Motorsport 5, Ryse: Son of Rome, TitanFall, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

abzdine: Don't worry theses demo consoles will be left untouched.

Well maybe the playable games will help them get some excitement built up in that market. They have been struggling mightily there for a long time. I think competition is good for the entire industry. It spurs innovation and creativity with the gamers reaping the benefits.

@abzdine They don't but Forza and Ryse are pretty much the only 2 game Microsoft have shown running on actual Xbone hardware so what else are they gonna do. At least we get to see Titanfall yet again on PC.

Funny thing is that Suda 51 said that the Japanese will soon embrace the Xbox :D

Not sure about that one...

You're just trying to waste my bubbles Abs. ;)
Abriael  +   218d ago
@SaulGoodman: I'll mark that as success :P
Baka-akaB  +   218d ago

Saul please tell me if hank and gomez survive the showdown. I can't wait till sunday!
SaulGoodman  +   218d ago
Ummmm, well sorry to say Gomie gets it, Hank takes out Todd then gets it. Jessie sneaks out of the car and no one sees him for an episode. Walt gets taken by Todd's uncle and then escapes. Madness Ensues.

I'm really curious to see how the X1 will do this gen. I mean the 360
Didn't do well. Even with all the jrpg. With kh and ff15 coming out on both, some may accept the X1. While I do doubt it, should be interesting even tho.

I gotta question, if anyone can answer. If sales go really bad for the X1, would SE drop delevoplment of the games, and make them exclusive again?

I am sorry to say but x1 stand no chance in Japan. Still eager to know Japanese gamers experience with these titles.

It's not even clear IF or when the One will be released in Japan is it?
Abriael  +   218d ago
If, yes. It's confirmed that it will be. Has been for a while.

When, no, they didn't say, nor they said the price. The same press release that had the list in this post said "please wait longer for info" lol.

It's a Tier 3 console, brah. Gotta wait till them important Tier 1 and 2 release first!
GenericNameHere  +   218d ago
Nice to see that MS is still trying in Japan. For 2 gens straight, the country just doesn't like them. Even with exclusive JRPGs in the 360s early life cycle, they still got no reward from Japanese gamers.

Anyways, can't wait for their feedback on Titanfall. Will Japanese gamers fall in love with it as Nomura and Kojima had? Or is it another Western game that's gonna make little to no dents in the Japanese sales charts?
MRMagoo123  +   218d ago
If they want mechs they have that gundam something or other and that armoured core game, i dont think a shooter will sway them.
GenericNameHere  +   218d ago
Yeah, I definitely understand that. But Hideo Kojima and Tetsuya Nomura both praised Titanfall! Two big name Japanese developers praising a western game that has mechs. Gundam is still highly relevant in Japan, and I'd love to someday see the life sized Gundam in person in Odaiba, Japan, but I want to know if having these two big names can have a huge impact on Titanfall's Japanese success.

If i had to guess, id say Sony will be showing off Deep Down, Drive Club, Second son and Kill Zone?

To be fair, each console has a strong launch, but if i had to pick one of them games to get hands on, id pick Deep Down.

I hope lots of new content arises.
Abriael  +   218d ago
They're showing quite a lot more than that.
Mr_Danski  +   218d ago
Yes id imagine so, i was talking AAA Titles :)
mcstorm  +   218d ago
I don't care what they are letting people play at Tokyo Game Show I just want my xbox one now. November 22 cant come quick enough. Be interesting to see the reaction to the xbox one in Japan and I hope Microsoft can get a hold in that market as well as Sony and Nintendo have a hold too as having 3 successful consoles is a better gaming world for us gamers.
Angerfist  +   218d ago
I thought no Xbox in Japan This time around? Did i miss something?
5h4h4b  +   218d ago
It's the same thing bro even if it launches :P
Mr-SellJack  +   218d ago
lmao imo only 2 would appeal Dead Rising 3 and Titanfall(they love halo for xbox and killzone mercenary did good)
Supermax  +   218d ago
Japan has been moving away from consoles for the last 5 years everyone plays 3ds and phones now.
MichaelLito79  +   214d ago
Games like D4, crimson dragon and Titanfall should be able to cater to Japanese gamers.
