Yesterday, it was revealed that Sony will be showing 18 unannounced PS Vita games at the Tokyo Game Show. Today, Sony Computer Entertainment exec Hiroshi Kawano revealed that there will be around 40 titles on display (including trailers and demos), and the Sony booth will have over 80 PS Vita demo units for gamers.
Final Fantasy Versus XIII was first unveiled at the E3 gaming expo in 2006. It's now 2011, and the game is not out.
The PS Vita won't be out in the West until next year. But it will be out in Japan this year. But when?
The keynotes at this year's TGS will be delivered by Square Enix honcho Yoichi Wada, Sony's Shuhei Yoshida, and the president of social gaming company Gree. Japanese netizens speculate that the PS Vita will be dated during Sony's keynote, the title of which translates as "The PS Vita's Full Details".
The Tokyo Game Show organizers are offering the chance for fifty couples (100) people to get free TGS tickets. Just follow @tokyo_game_show on Twitter and tweet why you want to go to TGS (be sure to add #tgs2011ticket) by August 31. Airfare and hotel are not included. Nerd sweat is.
With the earthquake, there was concern whether the Tokyo Game Show would happen. It will, and TGS will reduce energy consumption by 25 percent by doing things like switching to LED lights and limiting electricity use at the booths. [TGS]
