What other tidbits of news do we have? Well apparently Sony had another conference of sorts today. Your right they had one last week too lol so what was it about today? Well apparently the Ps4 will be getting released in certain asian terrortories in December this year. Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and South Korea will each see the console before Japan. While it deos sound odd, it seems to make sense to me. Japan will see the release of the new Vita & the VitaTV this year before the Ps4 is released in February. With Sony waiting till then it gives consumers/retailers time to focus on the new Vita goodies and prevents the market from getting oversaturated. People would probably mistake the VitaTV as the new Playstation if they all launched together. Yes, people are that stupid. We still have people in the UK who think the WiiU is an add-on for the Wii.
I also came across this article on Kokatu while looking for extra early snippets on TGS. Its a short article containing a excert from a book entitled 'Dreamcast Worlds'. Me & Andi are bothe extremely nostalgic when it concerns the Dreamcast so I implore you to have a read. Any new article concerning the Dreamcast is worthy of a read!
Any game news to speak of? Well theres a little. Anyone looking forward to TGS in the hope of seeing more of FFXV is going to be dissapointed as theres no plans for anythin new to be shown at TGS. Zip. Although there is talk of the director Tetsuya Nomura making an appearence in Sony's 'Conversations with creators' video. Will we get a tidbit of new info then? Probably not. Im not too fussed anyway. FFXIII still leaves a bitter taste in the mouth and Kingdom Hearts 3 seems to be more intrigueing so Id rather see that (Although I am looking forward to FFX HD whenever it comes) FFXV probably wont release for another 3 years or so yet anyway so theres plenty of time for information lol Actually, on the subject of Final Fantasy...
With that caveat in mind, Tabata also stated that he sees Agito and Type 0 as companion titles, and that they're best enjoyed with one other. Therefore Tabata says he still hopes to bring Type 0 to the West via PlayStation Network, and while a complete localization hasn't been greenlit it's definitely in the final stages of planning. While quick to offer the same localization-is-not-a-guarantee-of-release caveats for Type 0 as for Agito, he made clear the fact that both fan enthusiasm for the game along with the changing portable market have caught the company's eye and renewed their interest in bringing it overseas.
So in reading that, its safe to assume that it may come eventually via digital means on PSN no doubt. Id snap up a copy if the price was right.
There is also a review up on PushSquare (not by me lol) for Final Fantasy XIV if of interest to you: LINK
There may not be a post tomorrow due to other commitments I have, so apologies in advance. IF I can I may do a retrospective of sorts. With it being so close to TGS there will no doubt be more snippets tomorrow so If there is I will do a nice bumper post of news on Friday. With TGS kicking off its business days on the 19th & 20th before moving onto public shows for the 21st & 22nd, I may not be doing a review this week and just focus on Tokyo Game show news. I purchased EDF 2017 Portable on the Vita yesterday so I may be looking into that for a review next though. Any announcements your hoping for at TGS? Let us know!
