PS3 set to dominate Tokyo Game show.

Forums - Sony Discussion - PS3 set to dominate Tokyo Game show.

This looks like a very strong list of games popular in Japan.

And it's true that DQ IX will be the biggest game there but this list is full of very big games in Japan especially FF games, GT and Metal Gear Solid.



Thanks to Blacksaber for the sig!

I think that Dragon Quest 9 and the first playable Smash Bros along with Wiifit will dominate this show. If Sony Shows with FFantasy Metal Gear and GT5 it could be a tough fight though.

wow, the sony fanboys are getting desperate. Since SH2 was the last worthwhile SH game, I don't see a loss in not getting SH5 or Origins. Typical settup thread from Blue 3 I suppose.

Not surprising after you wanted SC IV on Wii very badly then when it was announced as PS3 and 360 only you proceeded to bash it and say it was a franchise in decline and whatnot.

Fanboys can't tolereate any games on consoles they don't worhip no matter how good they are. 


I naturally want as many games as possible to be on the Wii, but owning all four SH games, I can attest to SH2 being the last good one, I'm sorry you feel it is some sort of excuse, but sales will speak to this point as well.

SC never stopped being a good series, its sales just declined, and that was the point I was making there. Sorry you feel this is some sort of conspiracy theory.



Some of you are really nuts. 1 handheld game to some how out hype out do FF13 and FF13Versus, what are you on ?

It is not some handheld game, it's Dragon Quest 9. Dragon Quest is the most popular franchise in Japan

If you honestly think this is the turning point for Sony then it should be beneath you to worry about what we think.

It's not just any handheld game, it's Dragon Quest 9, the sequel to the best selling series in Japan. As Bodhesatva has pointed out in another thread only 3 games ever in Japan managed to outsell a Dragon Quest game of the main series (Super Mario Bros, SMB3, Super Mario Kart).

Also, DQ9 is coming for a platform that is hot (DS), while FF13 and Vs. are coming to a platform that is not (PS3).



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

A Biased Review Reloaded / Open Your Eyes / Switch Gamers Club

Nintendo (prior to 2001) didn't take part in TGS because they had their own expo in September (spaceworld) which was open to the public; since then they have displayed their products at small press functions in the fall rather than go to TGS. The reasons I have heard for this is that Nintendo believes there are too many conferences, these conferences cause too many distractions within development teams, and (with the internet) these conferences do not have the impact they once did.

Now, if Nintendo doesn't show up this year I can't say that TGS would be a worthwhile conference this year; Nintendo platforms account for nearly 75% of hardware and software sales in Japan, and Nintendo (as a publisher) represents 40% of the software sold this year, so their absence would mean that most of the hardware and software that would be sold in the comming year was not going to be displayed.

Anyways ... Sony may be able to dominate but I'm not sure 'domination' of a conference means anything anymore. At one point in time (when people got gaming news from Magazines) months worth of news and articles would come from what was shown at a conference; today a conference represents a week worth of news and a company (like Nintendo) can set up several small press conferences through out the year that have the same impact (for them) as an E3 or TGS conference.

What are you talking about Rol? Dragon Quest is not the best selling series in Japan. How could you put such a ridiculous claim on a website where the sales figures are accessible with a single click? Even it's number 2 spot is contentious, it only really makes it due to the volume of games sold. Final Fantasy doesn't even get a place.

The number one selling franchise in Japan is clearly Pokemon:

And of course, this goes to show that 1 handheld game could EASILY outhype FF13 and FF13Versus. If that handheld game was Pokemon. Dragon Quest IX will only SLIGHTLY outhype FF13 and FF13Versus.



Help! I'm stuck in a forum signature!

Thats true, nintendo only needs to release a decent Pokemon game for the wii and god knows that everyone in japan would buy the console.

Thats the real biggest system seller on japan.
