How Sony Messed Up its Tokyo Game Show Presence!

200°
316w ago - For years, the Tokyo Game Show has been the one show on the calendar you can bet Sony is going to put on a performance.

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. Firstly, conceding the keynote to Microsoft is bad news, especially on home soil. With no major announcements from Sony, it was up to the publishers to deliver. At Square Enix, they had a closed cinema screening showing a trailer of their upcoming titles.

Problem was, the queue took forever and the film was too long (around 20 minutes). They showed all their development projects, of which half I'm sure most were uninterested in. There were no playable next-gen titles outside of the 360 area and the Square Enix booth was right next to Microsoft's.

Also, Microsoft had huge displays of The Last Remnant and Star Ocean, illustrating the close bond between the two companies. Sony on the other hand, was in a completely different hall.

I hear you, you're saying that's not Sony's fault. Fine, let's take a look at the PlayStation area. Despite not a single other booth having an age restriction...
