Heading into the weekend festivities that is this year's Tokyo Game Show, Microsoft just officially revealed their lineup of games that will be available to play, see and experience at their TGS booth. The list (posted after the break) includes the standard assortment of MGS games including Nuts & Bolts and Fable 2, (but no Gears 2, sad face) as well as Japanese favorites Star Ocean: The Last Hope (first time playable) and The Last Remnant.
In total, Microsoft has 23 games listed, but conveniently left out any mention of a Bungie title. We're sure the secret Bungie title/DLC will not be on the show floor, which is why it isn't on the list, but some acknowledgment of its TGS appearance would be nice. You can't fool us Microsoft, we know you have some secret Halo TGS plans ... oh, we know.

- Mirror's Edge
- Bionic Commando
- Street Fighter IV
- Resident Evil 5
- Otomedius G
- Silent Hill : Homecoming
- Pro Evolution Soccer 2009

I wish I could try fable 2, Fallout 3, and Saints Row 2 before they were released. Oh well.

Rent them then. I feel pretty secure in the quality of those titles, especially compared to other games that have been coming out lately and been disappointing.
10-07-2008 @ 12:21PM
Ah, I do too. I just want to play them sooner. I do not doubt if they will be good or not.

I must say I'm a little surprised Lips isn't on the list.
Karaoke seems to be a big part of Japanese social culture, I'd think they'd want to push it aggressively to that market.

They already have a dedicated Karaoke machine in their living room.

The Japanese have different taste

Yeah they HATE shooters why is far cry there... oh no its gonna have exlusive DLC

I can't wait to see more information & media regarding Star Ocean IV: The Last Hope. It's going to stretch the limits of the 360, require multiple disks, and I will download that onto my Harddrive.
Bayonetta, The Last Remnant, and Bionic Commando also spark my interests. This Holiday has enough gaming greatness (including LR). I want Microsoft to finally talk about its 2009 Exclusives.

A Microsoft rep reportedly told Edge online Bungie was going to make a "major" announcement regarding their recently teased project at the convention.
Since then, we've learned atleast 2 Bungie employees are headed off to Toyko.
We'll have to see what happens.

As usual no mention of Splinter Cell: Conviction or Alan Wake.

Think you'll see them in the press conference (Alan wake more likely) but they're not gonna be playable.

Gears wont even be showing up there. Funny how the top game here isnt even showing up there.
10-07-2008 @ 12:29PM
Bungie secret is starting to look like they are bringing back Marathon. there are too many things alike between marathon and Halo.
10-07-2008 @ 12:30PM
Wow, if this is all MS has to show then it's prolly their worst lineup ever. Only Star Ocean, Banjo Kazooie and Fable II are exclusives, rest of them are multiplatformers.
Why? Sony has 90% of the list + 14 unannounced exclusives. (11 for PS3)
No idea about Nintendo yet.

Thats the games they announced. They're probably holding in to the big guns... Splinter Cell V, alan wake, halo. Atleast that's what I think, could be wrong.
10-07-2008 @ 12:47PM
Holy crap, that has to be by far one of the best lineups ever
gg microsoft :)

Kinda weird they left out Gears 2, as far as I know the first one sold pretty decent over there (for a Xbox game in Japanland, that is).
And Lips, where the hell is Lips? It wasn't even on display in Leipzig, was it? Although they said it was going to.

MSFT has the keynote speech.
And they've already said it regards Bungie./story
