View Full Version : Microsoft is skipping Tokyo Game Show this year

No surprises as XBO is pretty much dead in Japan, it's selling worse than the PS Vita TV.


To the surprise of no one, Microsoft is skipping out on spending thousands to make an appearance at TGS (Tokyo Game Show) -- taking place from September 17 to September 20 this year.

Speaking to Famitsu (translated by Gematsu) Microsoft Japan's Masayuki Inoue stated, “2015 will continue to provide an attractive game line-up, exclusive titles included. This year, Microsoft will not exhibit the Tokyo Game Show, but we’re making various preparations to deliver the latest Xbox news to fans and media. We will provide an update as soon as we can.”

So, it looks like Microsoft isn't giving up on Japan entirely, despite the dire situation. It'll be interesting to see how this plays out.

What? This is not even comparable. Nintendo was at E3 and Sony is at gamescom. They both didnt have press conferences though.
This reads like Microsoft doesnt even have a booth.
