Tokyo Game Show 2003 impressions (pictures inside)



The Tokyo Game Show is known as the world's largest game and entertainment event. Taking place once in a year, the TGS 2003 is currently held under the theme "A Playful Spirit Can Change the World.".

A total of 111 exhibitors including game software companies, development tool companies and game colleges from Korea, Taiwan, U.S. and of course Japan are showing a total of more than 500 new titles for all major gaming platforms, including the PS2™, Gamecube™, Xbox™, Dreamcast™ (yes we found a new Dreamcast™ title!), Gameboy Advance™, PC as well as for the (Japanese) mobile phone market.



Some of us have been lucky enough to go there and compiled a couple of nice and quick (you may excuse the quality for some) shots for all video game fanatics. If you'd like to check out more about the TGS2003, head over to their official website here. The exihibtion will still last for another 2 days, if you are residing in Japan, you still have the chance for a visit.

For everyone else we are preparing a nice giveaway with a lot cool stuff that we have collected on the show, including playable demo games, DVD catalogues, stickers and lots more. Additional information will be posted early next week.

Enough said for now, here we go with our first small picture gallery (click on each thumbnail for an enlarged view). Another update is expected to follow in the next few days but this should be enough for today....:
