Sony Breaking Out The Big Guns For Tokyo Game Show
You didn't really think Sony would skip over the Tokyo Game Show this year after taking GamesCom by storm with the price drop and PS3 Slim announcements, did you?
Nah, TGS is always the biggest show of the year these days, and Sony has released their lineup: as you can see, it includes all sorts of big names, including God of War III, Gran Turismo 5, Assassin's Creed II, Final Fantasy XIII, Front Mission Evolved, Quantum Theory, Tekken 6, and Bayonetta. Heavy Rain is there, too, but it says "tentative" next to the title, so we're a little nervous...we're definitely hoping for a finalized release date for that one, even though we've heard it will be ready to go in January. God of War III should be there just to stun the crowd with its greatness, unless they're willing to solidify a specific March date, and perhaps all eyes will be on GT5 and FFXIII...we so want American launch dates for both! The PSP should also have a good show, what with Gran Turismo PSP, LittleBigPlanet PSP, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, MotorStorm: Arctic Edge, Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep, and the currently mysterious God Eater on tap. We don't see much of anything that's very intriguing under the New Games section, but that's okay. We know what we want this year.
So keep a close eye on PSXE as we'll be keeping a close eye on the Sony press conference during TGS 2009 in just a few weeks time. GamesCom was big, but perhaps this will be even bigger...
