GameSpot's Live Photo Stream: Tokyo Game Show 2009

The crew is in Tokyo! For the Game Show that's in Tokyo!


The team has landed in Tokyo for one of the largest and most anticipated events of the year: the Tokyo Game Show. Nestled in one of the most technologically advanced cities on the planet, which is home to more than a few game developers, the show cannot disappoint. The Tokyo Game Show runs from September 24 to 27, so be sure to come back to see what has happened over the next few days!

Pre TGS fun in Akihabara

We've had our feet on the ground in Tokyo for the past few days, and we just had to take a look around. You would think the show had started already, but life here is actually a video game. Photographers: Brian Ekberg, Sophia Tong View images »

The Toys and Arcades

Japan is filled with awesome little goodies and amazing arcades. Take a peek at some of the bits and bobs we found. Photographers: Brian Ekberg, Randolph Ramsay, Sophia Tong View images »


KOEI was gracious enough to give us a tour of its facilities. The maker of Dynasty Warriors and Nobunaga's Ambition has quite a spread. The result is a mix of modern bustle with a dash of old-school tranquility. Photographers: Jan Meja Heir ,Ricardo Torres View images »

The PSPgo's almost ready to launch. It's only natural that Sony would introduce some goodies to go with it. Photographers: Ricardo Torres View images »
