Tretton was also asked whether the consoles stands now after a shaky first years. "Gamers are coming back to us, we are selling a higher percentage of games such as Madden NFL and Grand Theft Auto, because people are choosing the PS3 [over the Xbox].

Sales are up over 100 per cent and we are tracking well ahead of what we expected." Tretton replied.

To quote: Where do you stand right now in the console wars after a somewhat shaky first year?

Gamers are coming back to us, we are selling a higher percentage of games such as Madden NFL and Grand Theft Auto, because people are choosing the PS3 [over the Xbox].

Sales are up over 100 per cent and we are tracking well ahead of what we expected. We are having success in multiple markets and, coming up to the second anniversary of the PS3, we are right where we wanted to be.

Tokyo Game Show 2008: Microsoft Post TGS Impressions

50°
310w ago - For the very first time, Microsoft did a presentation at one of the biggest video game events in the world, which is the Tokyo Game Show.

Since the announcement of Microsoft appearing at the Tokyo Game Show, people were skeptical as to what they had to offer in this year's event. There is news that is surprising to most of us and some are well expected.

Let's take a look to the major announcements of Microsoft that might change the sales in Japan:

1. Star Ocean 4: The Last Hope
It's been confirmed once again that this is an XBOX 360 exclusive and it will be released in Japan on Feb 2009 while the US will have to wait a month later, March 3, 2009

2. Tekken 6
This might be a shocker to all Playstation 3 fans out there but Tekken 6 is one of the Sony's biggest known exclusives but it seems Namco Bandai has decided to spread the Tekken 6 love to the XBOX 360.

3. Ninety-Nine Nights 2
A sequel to the smash hit Ninety-Nine Nights 2 has been announced. Could this be better than the first one?

4. Metal Slug 7 & King of Fighters 98
These classics are indeed going to appear on the XBOX 360 through the XBOX Live Marketplace. These two classic games will appear in Spring 2009.

5. NXE to Appear...
