Games of personal interest:
* Record of Agarest War (Idea Factory)
* Devil May Cry 4 (Capcom)
* PixelJunk Racers (Q Games)
* Unannounced Title (Q Entertainment)
* Sega Rally (Sega)
* Oideyo LocoRoco!! Buu Buu Cocoreccho (Sony)
* Echochrome (Sony)
* Go! Sports Ski (Sony)
* LittleBigPlanet (Sony)
* Uncharted (Sony)
* Ratchet & Clank Future (Sony)
* White Knight Story (Sony)
* Dark Sector (D3 Publisher)
* Time Crisis 4 (Bandai Namco Games)
I really hope Record of Agarest War actually gets localized, but I'll import it if I have to. I can't get enough of the whole tactical RPG thing. And dammit, there had better be a downloadable demo for White Knight Story, or heads will roll. Ok, maybe not, but that'd suck. Also, info on the LBP open beta would be nice.

Forty games sounds impressive, but when you break it down, there is not a lot new there. Quite a few of those titles are already released or typical EA games.

Of course, Uncharted and Ratchet are two I want to see for sure. Sega Rally, too, because you can't get enough rally games ;)

I was curious to see what "Rise from Lair" was, but now see it is just a renamed "Lair".

Exactly what I was thinking when I looked the list over. It would be like MS bragging about having Blue Dragon, Gears of War, and Dead Rising playable at the show.

I was about to come in here and applaud the ability to have 40 new and upcoming titles available for play. But, like you, I come to see that a huge portion of the list is already available or multiplatform. Oh well.

I DO want to get my hands on White Knight Story.

Or, you know, you guys could realize that these games aren't out in Japan yet and this is a Japanese show? Maybe they're catering to the Japanese audience that hasn't played these yet?

EDIT: Also, that list is only 36 games long. They said that there will be 4 more unannounced games there in playable form.

I'm really excited for the Q entertainment announcement. They've been kind of lackluster lately but I think they have the potential to make something else incredible.

I'm hoping Uncharted gets good impressions at the show because I want something to buy for the ps3 and I'm not paying $60 for a Ratchet game because I'm too used to paying $20 for them

I'd really doubt the NBA game is all that popular, but then again, maybe the Japanese are nuts for basketball and I don't know it. As far as crappy licensed games, there's unfortunately a market for that garbage everywhere.

Is 40 a lot when they include Graw2, Spiderman3, Harry potter, project 8, Warhawk, heavenly Sword, and Pirates of the Caribean?

These games are either out already on the PS3 or have been out on the 360 for months...

Are they out in Japan? Like Gorvi said, this is the Tokyo Game Show we're talking about.

To my knowledge, Heavenly Sword hasn't been released anywhere, yet.

Besides, no one ever said they were new games, or games that no one has played. It just say's there are 40 games playable there.

Edit: According to the release list at *shudders* Gamefaqs, none of those games are out yet in Japan.

You might as well lump me in with them then. Your posts have zero intellectual nutritional value. All you're basically doing is throwing about wild insults that come nowhere near having a point (either in this dimension or the next).

You hate the PS3. We get it. But if the best you can do is call people names like a 3 year old then kindly shut the hell up, mmmkay?

Oh absolutely. If WKS actually bombs in reviews, then it'll no longer be a "must buy" for me -- although I'll be surprised if that happens.

I'm a hardcore RPG nut, so it'll take seriously bad reviews to change my mind (anything below 70). However, considering who's developing this game... that really seems unlikely :)

LBP could very well end up being a glorified tech demo, but that's fine as long as I can play around with the level editor.

By the way, I went to Fry's Electronics and they had at least 45 of the 60 gb and 50 of the 80gb PS3s. I was about to buy a PS3 until I went to select a game to go along with it.

...I couldn't find a title to make me justify my purchase. I want to by the 60gb with the actual PS2 chip in it, but I need games to play on the PS3.

Well a few of those games look fun, but to tote movie licensed movies I think is a bit of a stretch. Everyone knows you are going to have them, it's like a car company saying look we have also have seatbelt s. The Ps3 is like the Xbox when it first came out. It has power under the hood and potential but nothing worth getting yet. I guess there is always next year with the bigger and cheaper hard drive for the Ps3.

Great, Essential, and Potent rolled into a single word. Clutch is also used to describe something that is done, not something that is.

Blue Dragon was a "Must Buy" for me as well, based on the dream team of classic developers working on the project. However, the demo changed my mind taking it from "Must Buy" to "Maybe next time there's a dry spell and I can pick it up used for $25."

Just because the name of a person or team is on the game does NOT mean that the game will meet expectations. Before the PSP, anything with "Playstation" in the title was a must-buy for a lot of people

And with the PSP's lineup, it still should be.

Besides, anyone paying attention to the develpment of Blue Dragon should have been cautious. Mistwalker was just doing the overall design, they weren't actually making the game, that was Artoon (creaters of the Blinx series, for the unknowing). Level 5 is quite a bit better (and more reliable) than that.

Perhaps you should check out the name of the publisher next to the games. I don't think the Sony published games are "likely" PS3 exclusives, do you?

And of those, one is Lair, one is the 6 hour long Heavenly Sword, one is an expansion pack, one is a free demo and one is a downloadable puzzle game.
