From a Japanese game developer saying that the Japanese industry was "finished" to lower attendance, last year's Tokyo Game Show was disastrous. This year can only go up.
This year's TGS is the 20th Tokyo Game Show, and organizers have announced "a new midterm vision of becoming 'The No.1 Information Network in the Asian Region' and 'The World's Largest Event!'"
Okay, the first one sounds doable. Maybe. But the second one?
As part of its goal, this year's Tokyo Game Show will feature a beefed up PC area, gadget area, mobile phone area and kiddy area. Because today's kids are tomorrow's adults or something.
And this year, the private business-only days have been opened up somewhat. Business day tickets will go on sale to those in the game industry who register in advance. This is a change as in previous years, business days were invite only.
