Tokyo Game Show given fundraising focus for 2011
Wednesday 06 April 2011
Despite the disruption and destruction associated with the Sendai Earthquake, this year's Tokyo Game Show will be going ahead with a new focus on auctions and fundraisers for the ongoing relief efforts.
Along with E3, Gamescom and PAX, the Tokyo Game Show is one of the world's biggest video game conventions, and the last to arrive each year.
2010's edition saw a pre-release blowout for Microsoft's Kinect, with Japanese developers lining up to pledge support.
This year, the new hardware on everyone's minds is likely to be Sony's successor to the PSP, tentatively entitled the Next Generation Portable.
The Tokyo Game Show will run September 15 to 18, with members of the public admitted on the latter two days.
Admission to the 2010 event started at ¥1,000 in advance ($12/€9), with tickets at the door going for ¥1,200 ($14/€11).
