Xbox 360 steals Tokyo Game Show

The Japanese Times writes: The biggest announcement at the four-day Tokyo Game Show 2008 (Oct. 9-12) at Makuhari Messe convetion center in Chiba Prefecture was not for a Japanese title and not by a Japanese company.

The Sony toilet is CLOGED with $hit games and all you can coment on is a 2 yr old problem that is a thing of the past. Go build a Penis on Little big turd and suck it.

Good to hear. Competition is only making things better for me. May be Sony will step it up now in Japan.

definitely need to push Sony harder, because SCEJ is the crappiest of all the SCE division.

SCEE cant even pull their finger out of their arse long enough to give the PS store a demo section.

I would hardly say they stole the show. TGS was more bland than E3 this year, quite bad.
