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.
humanity.. you could just have easily written "I guess Microsoft might just sell a few more in Japan, like a couple million or so." Also 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 sh@ts and giggles. Anyways if this game doesn't be well in Japan I have no doubt this game will do very well in the US.
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.
