Okay, they may have had a few issues in the past (overheating PS3s) but in general, TGS is their best show of the year. They nearly always headline the keynote and usually announce something or other. This year, however, I can't help but feel that Sony isn't trying.
What a whiner. Sony owns about 10% of SE. They know whats going on between Square and MS I'm sure they have some say in the board room. Anything you hear from the media is pure speculation. I read the MS key note live blog. What did they do that was so amazing? Beside setting up a booth right beside SE. There is still a couple of days left to go. Let just see what happens.
Tgs aint over yet. Second off they have game showings with square enix on the 11th day of TGS, third off the only reason why sony doesn't have the rpg games is because they are investing money into their own first parties while microsoft is dishing out cash for ps3's exclusive.
Its funny in a way how lems say ohhh xbox 360 got the best games yet we want ps3's exclusive games.
No stellar new games announced for either side.
That being said, no doubt XBOX 360 has been pushing a lot harder in Japan with all that money they're paying to bring exclusive or timed exclusive JRPG's to XBOX 360.

XBOX 360 is the place for Japanese RPG's right now. That's hard to deny.
I don't know when Sony plans to fight back here.
people got too much free time it seems like throughout the whole year everyone had to blame( actually whine) sony at least once. stop acting like you know how that business works.
lol Sony did fine, no one company really owned TGS. No "I just wet myself" moments or anything.
MS did fine too, nothing huge either.
Now Nintendo, they just had no presence at all.
