PlayStation 3 to appear at Taipei Game Show

A quarter of Sony's booth will be devoted to showing off the PS3, but will it be anything gamers haven't seen before?


Sony will be giving the PlayStation 3 a public appearance at the Taipei Game Show 2006, February 16-20. According to the Chinese-language Commercial Times, a quarter of Sony's exhibit space at the show will be devoted exclusively to the PS3.

Since Sony announced the PS3, the console has become the gamers' white rabbit. When the system was unveiled at last year's Electronics Entertainment Expo, it did so accompanied by a trailer reel of games in development for the system, including new Killzone and Tekken titles. Months later at Tokyo Game Show 2005, hopes of playable PS3 demos were dashed, but attendees were treated to a handful of new game trailers, most notably Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots.

It hasn't been disclosed whether Sony is planning something similar with the Taipei Game Show, or if the console will finally appear in a playable form. Sony's appearance at "the other TGS" comes just one month before Microsoft launches its Xbox 360 in Taiwan on March 16.
