The Sights Of The Tokyo Game Show

Oh hey! It’s time to take a look at the first day of the 2016 Tokyo Game Show.

Today was the first business day, hence the small crowds. When the public days start, expect huge masses of people.

Honestly, this year was an off one. A really off one. Some of the biggest companies were trying to get games out the door that should’ve been released on the PlayStation 3. That, perhaps, meant less brand new stuff.

What was fascinating, however, was to see how VR appears to have a strong foothold in Japan. It’s to early to see whether VR in Japan will go mainstream, but there is already a great deal of creativity among the big companies like Sony as well as the smaller and indie ones.
