Microsoft changed the way the masses view E3 this past May with demos, videos and behind-the-scenes reports downloadable directly via Xbox Live. This September, the company is looking to do the same for the Tokyo Game Show.
They must have a lot of news to have a pre-TGS conference, a TGS conference, and X06.
Whathever Microsoft has prepared to spoil the other consoles launch, it will definetly be bigger than anything announced so far. Now is where the real competition starts.
The TGS and X'06 shows will definitely make the Marketplace the hub of all the information.
Think about it. Sony puts everything they have into TGS, while MS attempts to block it with their own announcements, though Sony is the clear winner of the round. Then, at X06 MS throws a deadly haymaker, which may or may not hit. How exciting! And speaking of boxing, back to FNR3!
Sony was right... They can't shake them. Microsoft keep stepping on their balls and will not let go. Sony found their true match. hah they just keep making Sony look bad.
Excellent Ms. You just continue to bring new stuff to the table.
like what eye toy lol MS will get raped at TGS sony is already the winner before it even starts.
your just a sony tard who trolls the 360 site and no MS won't get raped. The only one who got raped is you, by your grandpa.
When MS does stuff like this for us "Gamers" it makes me very happy to own a 360.
Props to MS
i may seem like i lean more towards the Sony side, but i'll have to agree that MS is more of a people's console. meaning, they provide a lot for gamers in service and things related.
M$ hasn't recieved any love in Japan, I think part of it is Japanese brand loyalty and part is because 360 did not have games that appealed to most of them. I have lived in Japan on and off over the past 10 yrs. (Job related) and I always went to Toys R Us yes thats right its there too, but I would go there looking for games so I can tell you that their gaming tastes are very different, they love little cute animals and anime stuff etc....I played a few games but honestly it was a little to wierd for me, but thats the whole point, I think M$ will continue to fail because they don't understand what Japanese gamers want....they will need J. dev's to make those little quirky games that they love. I don't think even M$ clearly understands why they are failing in Japan yet they are still willing to go to TGS and put on a strong show.....based on past results, I don't anything they do at TGS will change things in the near future, fortunately there are signs that the Japanese market is changing and Japanese gamers are becoming more interested in foreign games....so I respect M$ for stepping up to the plate and giving their best swing, maybe, just maybe they might get to first base.
i guess there are more then 5 million japanes what like to get a ps3 but not so many in stores. if they want to play next gen games what they will buy? i dont know smile.
I wonder what kind of big announcements Microsoft will have for us in TGS. People think that they will be overshadowed by Sony? lol. Look at all the second-generation, new innovative games that will either be displayed by IN-GAME footage or playable. Sony don't know what's coming to them.
