Tokyo Game Show 2005 Releases Game Lists
From what I understand, this list is not comprehensive. So take it with a grain of salt. But here is a summary of the titles to be shown at the 2005 Tokyo Game Show, by platform:
- Mobile: 57
- PC: 42
- PS2: 27
- DS: 8
- PSP: 5
- Xbox: 5
- Xbox 360: 2
- PS3: 2
- GC: 1
- Etc: 18
Notice anything? The PS2 to Xbox game ratio is 27 to 5! This is just another example of how strong the PS2 is in Japan. But the PS3 to Xbox 360 game ratio is 2 to 2. Can we infer something from that? You could say that Microsoft has caught up in the next generation. Or you could argue that an even showing is actually quite good for the PS3, considering that it’s launch it up to 10 months away vs 3 months for the 360.
Or, like me, you could stay out of this one. 🙂 I don’t think much can really be read into these next-gen numbers, the sampling size isn’t large enough. Now if the numbers were 27 to 27, now that would be something.
Something to ponder at any rate.
