Sony and Microsoft ready Tokyo Game Show lineups
Friday 09 September 2011
Both Sony and Microsoft have issued title rosters for the Tokyo Game Show, ranging from
Dance Central 2 through to
X Golden Dream Song and
Happy Charlie and the Flying Carnival.
Sony is pushing games for its PlayStation 3 home console, the current PSP handheld, and a 30-strong list for the upcoming PlayStation Vita.
For the PlayStation 3 there are well known games such as Uncharted 3, Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One, and the ICO, Shadow of the Colossus, and Metal Gear Solid HD remakes.
The manufacturer is expected to name a release date for the PlayStation Vita, backed by titles such as Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Virtua Tennis 4, Hot Shots Golf Next, and Ridge Racer.
We can also expect updates on Dynasty Warriors Next - one of the few shown at the Vita's January 2011 announcement - as well as Blazblue Continuum Shift Extend and the Vita version of role-playing game Disgaea 3.
While Sony has collared the multi-platform Battlefield 3 for its show list, Microsoft can boast Skyrim and Rage, (a coup given the local popularity of the related Fallout 3), alongside the mainstream appeal of Star Wars Kinect, Disneyland Adventures Kinect, and Michael Jackson: The Experience.
The Tokyo Game Show runs September 15-18, while Nintendo plans to queue-jump the whole affair with a special 3DS press conference set for September 13.
