"Microsoft finally invades Japan" This gameplayer article explores the history of the Tokyo Game Show and the massive shift in focus this year from Sony to Microsoft and what it means for the two companies.
lol yeah what the hell happened to those 9 unannounced games from Sony? and the 2 from Konami and Irem or something?
hmmmmm.....so is sony going to finish the show without the exlusive games they talked about!!!!!..... if that happens that is gonna really suck... :/
Besides, all Microsoft showed was another Halo expansion which no one cares about.
How the heck did this article get approved and TGS aint even over yet? They should ask this question in three days. And in three days...the answer will be a big fat "HELL NAW".
Didnt we hear how MS "cracked" Japan a few months ago? Or how MS "is selling like hotcakes" in Japan? What has changed since? NOTHING. Listen, Sony has LBP, WhiteknighChronicles and HOME for Japan this holiday season. Nothing on both competitors have stuff that even comes close.
All microsoft is doing is buying themselves more time. The 1 year head start backfired on them.............no wait... Everything they have ever done with the xbox has backfired on them, if it wasnt for the deep pockets xbox would be the 3do right now, DECEASED. While the 360 attempts to buy out everything the playstation ha. sony is busy farming 1st partiy studios and creating games that even if stolen CANNOT RUN ON THE 360. That will be the end of the rrod. Copying only goes so far. Innovation pushes technology. This reflects on the software lineups for 2009. Seriously, how many halos before people realize that. Thats Microsofts weakness, they dont innovate. They imitate and then try to pass off as quality(elite,zune,windows,psn ripoff,wiimote ripoff, etc,). Microsofts strategy didnt work last gen. They got desperate and here they are now. Desperate and shook that all their precautions, even the 1 year head start did not work in their favor.
How is Darkknight able to post on the gamerzone and have over 5 bubbles? ... Ohhh yeahhh that's right this place is full of his/her kind! Face it DORKknight.. Everybody copies! Sony copies, Nintendo copies, MS copies, Apple copies! Its how the world works buddy!
3rd party games are all going multi platform. By 2009 and 2010, 97% of these games will be on more than one console. Sony has 1st party studios like no other. MS does not. Sony is able to keep pumping out elite games like LBP, R2, M2, KZ2 etc and they will ALL BE EXCLUSIVE. MS will have nothing but multi platform title. On the PS3, all those same multi platform titles + all those 1st and 2nd party exclusives. Take two guesses which console is the better one.
It's PS1 and PS2 era all over again. No surprise there. I have faith in SONY and PS3. - M$ cannot hold on to the price drop much longer. They will go back to original price very soon. - M$ still has not resolved the RROD and disc-scratching problems. - M$ screwed buyers with half-baked consoles. - More 360 sold = more RROD = more frustrated customers. On the other hand, PS3 with more REAL exclusives will begin to capture the consumers' hearts. SONY only needs to keep doing what they're doing. SONY is only waiting for M$ to lose steam. Everyone knows 360 is inferior to PS3. M$ will only gain little for a short time. SONY isn't worried about customers, there are billions of them out there. As long as they keep innovating, everyone will see who is putting in more effort. M$ is only after the $$$, investors like that don't stay long. When they realize too tough for them, they'll give up. After that, it's SONY empire all over again.
i like how all the sony fanboys keep going on about "games like R2, KZ2, LBP etc." too bad they haven't even come out yet. how about you wait until they come out, see if they're ACTUALLY the killer apps they're hyped up to be, and then wait another 2 years for the next round of good sony games.
Wow... Tekken. it's still on the PS3. everyone knows that in this gen publisher must go multi-platform because of the development costs. Tekken still on the PS3. but I still hate that. anyway where is the 9 or 11 or what ever games?!.
Check this out. http://forums.gametrailers.... ROFL look at the difference! One is like watching a 1980 cartoon and the other is like watching a 2010 cartoon! My god. Feel the POWER!
Putting the fanboyism aside. Even as a Sony fan I have to say MS easily won TGS. I mean Sony said they had 11 new games to reveal, they knew people where screaming for more JRPGs and to see something new. I even kept hitting this site for any news of Sony revealing a new game, we did see that new Tecmo game, but I am disappointed they decided against not having a press confrence, especially one that could rival MS. I mean all they had to do was show maybe 2 - 3 trailers of games for next year and they would easily have "won" back their fans. Unless we see Sony unvail a new game or at least confirm something for next year I will have to give MS their credit for stealing the thunder from Sony at a major event.
So, are they trying to say the PS3 does QTEs better than the 360? I don't understand.
haha sleepbox that is the exact thing I wanted to say. i think i threw up in my mouth with the feel the power talk.
Lots of scarred Sony fanboy's in this comment, some have even come out of hiding. On topic, everything in this article is true and undeniable.
How is it that you're a ps3 fanboi if it takes only a 360 Halo stand alone expansion to make you piss ur pants? *shakes head*
If you think I am a fan of Microshite you should check all of my previous posts. My point is Sony let MS go to their home turf and with just 2 annoucements are being crowned as 'TGS winners'. If you have been following this site you would know that Sony was supposed to annouce 9 new titles but they did not. It is fine if Sony decided against annoucing those titles, but all Sony had to do in their keynote speech was show a trailer for the Tecmo game, maybe talk about White Knight and give a tentative release date for the US and Maybe annouce just one other title. That way no one could say MS won the day by annoucing 1 new game and taking Tekken 6 as multi-plat, because Sony annouced two new titles. Look 360 out sold PS3 last month in every region, and I don't think Sony did anything to make people say wow I guess I don't need to buy a 360 because Sony has got me covered. My part in all of this is simple, I don't want to buy a 360, I think the 360 is a rip off, it should not even be contending after the RROD. I have been a loyal customer but I am running out of reasons to tell X-bots to fu** off.
My question is how do you know this? There's at 3 days left. Sony could be saving it for last. Who knows?
Well Tekken 360 and Halo3:Recon have been the biggest annoucements of TGS so far and they both came from MS And without a real press conference i doubt Sony has anything to counter them Not to mention Mistwalker hasnt shown anything yet, means MS could have a few more aces up their sleeve
As the guy above me said. Halo 3 was big for YOU since you are a 360 troll. Don't try to pass that out as facts. If it was Halo 4 then that would be something else. Now as far as Tekken goes, we all knew it was going to happen. Was just a matter of time.
Be careful man. A lot of the sony faithful are starting to show a lot of frustration and anger like the 2 comments above me. Don't rub it in to much ;)
Halo3: Recon wasnt big eh?, then name me another game announcement which tops it from TGS I think its safe to say that the biggest shocker from Sony this TGS is that there were NO big shockers
Of course we're angry, Firstkn1ghT! We aren't getting an expansion pack AND one of gaming's dying genres is trying to revive itself by releasing a port on a lesser system. *supreme jealousy reigning down upon us*
The Halo Recon news was definitely the biggest news of the show for 360 fans but honestly so far im a little dissapointed at the outcome. I mean we've all waited this year forsome huge news and gameplay and yet we got nothing. As it stands now the show is a tie until somebody shows gameplay of an amazing exclusive.
If a person doesn't like fps's and only cares about Japanese Rpgs then how can the Halo expansion be anything big for them? Japan had a problem with MGS4 just because they needed to use both the analog sticks at the same time. Does that remind you of something else? Halo was not big for anyone except for the Halo fans and that fanbase is mostly in US and Europe. TGS's biggest Wow announcement for the Japanese was not halo trust me. It really shows that some of you can't put yourself in a other person's shoes when you say stuff like this.
Tekken was probably one of the biggest announcements, however Halo 3:Recon I can't say. I'm not expecting anything from Sony to be honest. They already have a pretty good lineup. @MasterOfPwnage : Randomly accuse someone of being a troll one more time and I'll smack your face off.
I want to hear about 'Me only' not 'Me too' tut tut its best to wait for the end before titles are given, just common sense.
oh snap, firstkinght!! i thought you committed suicide like youre 3rd 360? whoa!!! glad to see youre still GGREEN with hate.
I seriously don't see how people are already considering Microsoft the "winner" of TGS. They announced an expansion and a multiplatform game (that they likely stole...again). I've heard of 2 new IPs for Sony. Demon Souls and Quantum Theory are already announced (one semi-playable) and the show isn't even over yet. I personally don't really care about Tekken, but I'm sure its a big deal in Japan (but again, its not like it went 360 exclusive). Halo, on the other hand, isn't really a big deal at all there. Plus its just an expansion. I'm sure a lot of people are happy about the Halo announcement, but if you asked someone who was actually there who was winning, I don't think they'd say Microsoft.
no one cares about halo?? hahaha more than 8 millions buyers says HI!!!....more buyers than any PS3 title LOL
I don't see how you guys aren't mad at Sony right now I mean come on! MS reveils they are releasing an expansion pack to Halo and that Tekken 6 is going multi-plat and Sony doesn't counter? I mean Sony has over 20+ first and second party studios! MicroShit--y has like 3! Come on where are the 11 new games SONY for F sake, SONY is taking the bullets out of my gun. I can't believe you guys are saying well it isn't that big a deal. Dude MS had basically Poo-Poo and Sony said well we will let them win with crap because we won't even play.
seems to be Sony's big focus... and that is lame. I was really hoping for God of War 3 or Uncharted 2... doh! Microsoft still has Alan Wake up its sleave too.
Word! Fück Home, I couldn't care less about that crap (yes CRAP fanboys, its CRAP, boring fücking CRAAAP). GOW3 is what I am waiting for now. Since Tekken 6 went multiplat its the only exclusive game I'm likely to get for my ps3 in the coming year besides Motorstorm 2, and possibly KZ2 if its any good beyond its gfx. Launch ps3 owner, extremely dissapointed, best games for my ps3 right now are Super Stardust HD, Wipeout HD, and Motorstorm. And I didn't pay no 600 $, I paid approx 1000 $ for a dust collector. I want to love my ps3, but I see no reason why. And don't bring up mgs4, or uncharted, finished them both once, quite enough.
I hate to say it but I am kinda in the same boat! But next week times will finally begin to change with Dead Space, then LBP, R2...you know the list. I mean if it were not for COD4 my PS3 would be a dust collector as well, I really think that LBP and R2 will turn the tide finally. It has taken a while but I think that Sony is finally getting to a point where it has enough games to keep me busy for the long haul.
not really imean micro announce all of those, but sony got whiteknight yakuza 3 quantum theory demon soul and some other shiit , but both of company, has not impress so far. imean, were is all the 11 unannounce ps3 exclusive. and tekken thing was not even a big deal. we all knew. it was just wen they will do announce it. and its going to the ps3. this article is stupid. no company even showed anything exiting yet. well beside quantum theory and whiteknight and starocean. this sux
Mmmmm, I'm thinking you're 12 years old, could be wrong, maybe 11... And no way in hell do you own a ps3, more likely a ps2 fanboy wishing he was actually a real ps3 fanboy
so wat in my comment that made me look like a 12 year old. maybe some comments i sound childish, but seriously i think u are replying to the wrong comment. and yes i do have ps3, actually i own all. thats why i said im exited for both. and also said im disappointed so far from both
Tomorrow is the two public days, isn't it? I'd be very dissapointed if Team ICO doesn't show up although the chances of them showing up day by day is getting slimer. The only way I'd forgive Sony for this is if they announce that the Konami exclusive is a Kojima game and is, infact, Zone of the Enders 3. Lets us pray for either one or both. *prays*
A new Zone of the Enders game would probably be multiplatform.
Sony has an ending keynote with square. What's up. And it is about ff13. http://www.jp.playstation.c... And no they didn't. Halo and a multiplat means nothing.
Has microsoft stolen sony's tgs crown? Hell no! sony had 11 new and EXCLUSIVE ps3 games announced @ Tgs!! a full double conference with level 5 with tons of new level 5 rpgs for the ps3!! i mean tonss of LEVEL 5 RPGS!! and a private party where they show new stuffs and more ps3 games like Team Ico new game! ... wait a second ... I'm not Nasim! SILLY ME!! :p
WTF? Crazy person.
that was so thick in sarcasm it even fooled me.
i mean come on seriously now microsoft didn't even have any shocking announcements they just showed more of what they have and showed some things that were obviously coming how did they steal this crown they are talking about?
Halo 3: Recon is big news. Halo has sold TENS of millions of copies. Halo is one of the best reviewed game series since its launch, 97, 95 and 94 for Halo:CE, 2 and 3. There is, without a doubt at all, that Halo 3: Recon will be a very big title for MS next year. Anyone who tries to pretend otherwise is fooling themselves. note, I'll even offer, maybe **YOU** dont like Halo (you think it "suxors", and you dont own an Xbox) -- but there is no way you can try and say that a new Halo game *isnt* big news. Halo 3: Recon is TERRIFIC news. BTW, this "TGS crown" is nonsense. Ignore this article, gameplayer.com.au is worthless and should be banned from this site.
do you realize what your saying? this is TGS revealing a new halo expansion isn't big news at all at TGS those sales mean nothing in the land that hasn't been kind to the game it may be big news here in the states but revealing that over there isn't big what so ever and no i don't like halo for 2 reasons 1 i never liked the story i found it really boring and most importantly 2 all the time online every single person is an idiot and a real ass sure you can play mute the mic but if im gonna play an online game without the headset i might as well go play my wii online
HALO Recon hasn't been big news. I am going to get it because I am a huge HALO fan but it isn't big news and quite frankly it didn't pump me up the way a game about a Spartan II would. That isn't Master Chief specific for most HALO fans as those that read Ghosts of Onyx were just as taken with that story. But an ODST - when you first meet them in HALO Fall of Reach they are a bunch of pricks that get killed for their stupid arrogance - just doesn't appeal in the same way. Frankly the announcement has been met with a ho hum attitude. Once again MS tries to drive one announcement (FF13 at E3 comes to mind) as if that matters more than the plethora of news that Sony brought to the table.
lol We'll see
Has Micro$ofts TGS Show finished??? Was that it??? Didn't see anything that will kill off the PS3!!! ;-D
LMAO *scratches crotch* umm.. WATT?
whats a TGS crown go for these days? 100mill? dose M$ have that must Office/excel/Word royalties left to buy that?
To be honest, I haven't seen anything available for any other console that rivals what is available for the PS3. The best hardware, the best games, the best online community.
Stubacca................hahaha hhahahahhahahahhahhaa No Nasim. Just no. Not even a little close to truth.
Correct me if I'm wrong but shouldn't articles such as this wait until the show is finished?
Well we all know that there are people who love to jump the gun. TGSI
There are no 9 games, guys. It was a mix up and translation error. Please understand this. Sony has nothing at TGS but what we've already seen and that ain't much.
once again all the big talkers and then reality comes and bites them on the butt. they are doing the same thing with the upcoming lineup of games but maybe if you throw enough shat at a wall some of it will eventually stick.
Yeah sony f*cked up again. Just more hype with very lil substance. I gave up on my ps3 long time ago. I haven't played anything great since Uncharted.
I'll buy it!
lol your no PS3 owner! lol I have both and have barely touch my 360! Seriously even at this moment i'm about to play my PS3 for wipeout! Only on here because i'm waiting for 12:00am to finish downloading it in my off peak time!
The Gaming Show doesn't begin until Sony says so. Hell Sony hasn't even announced all of those exclusive games yet, so it really hasn't started. TGSI
ps3 fanboy nowsaying that they dont care about tekken 6 and its sucks take a look here. LittleBigKillzone - 54 days 11 hours ago - It will go to 360 Oh dont get me wrong, Im all for the PS3 incase you cant tell by name im just simply stating the obvious, This game will come to 360 without a 2nd thought. Id love for it to stay PS3 exclusive but I know it wont. Agree(0) | Disagree(4) | Report | Reply Paiton - 53 days 22 hours ago .1 - And I know for a fact that it wont go to the 360. Tekken is bound by contract and thus exclusive for the PS3. Thats why all Tekkens so far are PS3 exclusive. The only exception made was for the handhelds. So dream on. Best fighter ever = PS3 exclusive. You thought SC4 was fun, Tekken is on a whole different level. Online is actually FUN and competitive in Tekken.
yeah i ermember them ff post too..
So have fun bragging. We cant wait to shove it in your face when Mass effect (1 and 2) are announced for the PS3.
Pff MASS EFFECT 1 is published by microsoft so forget about it and hope for mass effect 2 anyway iwill own all 3 consoles this fall. dosnt matter alot. but i respect what microsft did for xbox360, did the impossible !! they deserve to win the console work this time unlike sony.
So MS deserve to win the console war for creating a console with no new technology and a 30% failure rate? Sony pushed the boundaries of gaming totally. The PS3 isn't just a game's console, it's an entire entertainment system. Games such as Little Big Planet are examples of Sony's innovation, and will likely change the face of gaming for ever. IMO, Sony deserves to 'win the console war' (despite being that there will never be a true victor) just because, the next generation of consoles that come out will all use technology first used in the PS3.
Fighting games suck big time. Just my opinion don't really care which console this game goes to cause I hate fighting games!!!!!
that is a classic right there. buuuurrrrrrrrnnnnn make sure you pm that jackass and remind him.
