Microsoft is not participating in Gamescom or the Tokyo Game Show this year.
Larry Hryb (AKA Major Nelson on XBL) announced this morning that Microsoft is skipping Gamescom and the Tokyo Game Show this year in order to focus on other events. Here is Hryb's full statement:
As you saw at E3, we have a solid line-up of games launching this holiday, along with other entertainment experiences. We've changed our approach a little, though. This year, Xbox will be focusing on smaller, more localized promotions and experiences for press, partners, retailers and customers around the world. Which means that as you might have seen on some of the news sites today, we won't be taking part in gamescom or Tokyo Games Show this year.
Both are still important shows for the industry, and we do wish the organizers well.
Gamescom and TGS are two of the largest video game events each year. Hopefully Microsoft makes up for their absence in both events.
