TGS 2014: Back with a Revengeance

posted in: Gaming News | 0

Tokyo Game Show 2014 looks like a return to form. Lots of quality gameplay trailers and announcements from the likes of Square Enix, Capcom and Sony. And to think I was about to head over to the land or the rising sun as well.

Be warned. Most of the trailers are in Japanese but you don’t need to understand the language to appreciate the quality of their productions.

Welcome back, Tokyo Game Show.

  • Final Fantasy XIII trilogy coming to Steam. FFXIII on Oct. 9th. Entire trilogy by Spring 2015 (via Press Release)
  • Tetsuya Nomura no longer directing Final Fantasy XV (via Press Release)

New Slimmer PS3 Unveiled

The 2012 Tokyo Game Show is happening right now. One of the most “exciting” announcements thus far is the unveiling of the new PlayStation 3. It’s “approximately 25% smaller and 20% lighter” than the old PlayStation 3 Slim.

The most affordable option will debut at $269.99 and will come with a 250GB hard drive, Uncharted 3: GOTY Edition and some paid DUST 514 content. There’s also a 500GB model.

For those who are paying attention, the base price actually rose by $20. To be fair the current base model is $249.99 for a 160GB model.

I don’t have a real opinion on the looks of the machine. I’d imagine it looks better in person. I am not a fan of it being a top loader though. It may be more practical for those instances where your machine dies and you have a disc stuck inside but it’s aesthetically unappealing with that dividing line down the middle.

FYI: TGS round up & Max Payne 3 trailer
