Tokyo Game Show 2005 releases exhibitor and game lists

Lists of record-breaking 130 participants and preliminary game lineup unveiled; four next-gen console games expected so far.


TOKYO--With the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 expected to be on playable public display for the first time, this year's Tokyo Game Show is possibly the most anticipated since 1999, back when the PlayStation 2 made its public debut. According to the Computer Entertainment Suppliers Association (CESA), the primary Japanese game-industry organization that organizes the Tokyo Game Show, the number of exhibitors for this year's TGS, as of August 7, has just about reached 130 companies at 1,429 booth units, breaking last year's record of 117. So far, 73 of the companies have announced a total of 166 games and products for this year's show, including mobile games and peripherals. 30 of those are online games.

Four next-generation console games are already set to be exhibited by third-party publishers, although it's unclear whether any will be playable. Konami is scheduled to show off the PS3's Metal Gear Solid 4 and the female fighter Rumble Roses XX for the Xbox 360. MGS 4 was initially announced at E3 in May, although no actual in-game screens were shown (or have been released since). Koei will also have two next-generation console games on display: Ni-Oh for the PS3 and Dynasty Warriors 5 for the Xbox 360. The list of next-generation console games should lengthen once Sony and Microsoft reveal lineups for their booths.

Stay in touch with GameSpot for additional details and continuing coverage of TGS 2005, as well as an updated line-up of games slated to be shown.

The Tokyo Game Show will take place at the Makuhari Convention Center in the city's Chiba prefecture from September 16 to 18. The first day is open to industry affiliates only, but day two and three will be open to the unwashed masses. Tickets are available for advance sale at 1,000 yen ($9) and can also be purchased at the show for 1,200 yen ($11). The roster of exhibitors and the preliminarily list of games from major publishers at TGS 2005 are below.
