The Tokyo Games Show starts on September 24, and the CESA has released a partial list of games that will be present for the event.
Seems like there is a games conference every month, doesn’t it?
Some of the speakers lined up include Sony’s Kaz Hirai delivering a keynote, Haruhiro Tsujimoto the president and COO of Capcom, Konami VP Kazumi Kitaue, Square’s Yoichi Wada, Sony’s Shuhei Yoshida and Shin Unozawa the president and CEO of Namco Bandai.
Epic president Michael Capps will also be there, delivering a speech on “Adapting the ‘Gears of War’ Franchise for Global Consumption”
As far as games go, the list is past the break. While it is only a partial list, you may notice that Microsoft, Nintendo, Sony, and Square Enix are missing from the list. Don’t worry, all will be there will bells on.
Surely more will be announced soon as well, so until then, just keep watch for more updates.

According to this, Saw publisher Brash entertainment isn’t looking to go down the EA route to grow.
“We absolutely will not buy developers or build internal development teams,” said CEO Mitch Davis. “That is a strategy which has worked well for EA, Activision, THQ, and other publishers in the industry, but that is not our thing.”
The company, which will only make movie-based games, plans to bring 40 licenses to market over the next 4 or 5 years, and already has properties it is working on for 2010 and 2011.
“We offer a unique opportunity for collaboration between film studios, directors, and talent on movie properties and the best talent in the videogame marketplace,” Davis said.
