Japanese trade body the Computer Entertainment Supplier's Association has announced the dates for this year's Tokyo Game Show, which will take place over four days for the first time.

TGS 2007 will run from Thursday September 20 until Sunday September 23. For the first two days the event will only be open to industry professionals, while members of the public will be able to attend the second half of the show.

Traditionally TGS has taken place over three days. It's thought that the move to extend this is part of plans to increase the show's profile and attract more international visitors as E3 is downsized.
