Microsoft Not Attending Tokyo Game Show Or Gamescom

Microsoft Not Attending Tokyo Game Show Or Gamescom

Microsoft announced today that it will not be appearing at either Gamescom or the Tokyo Game Show. Instead, it will rely on its partners and, in Japan’s case, its own events.

 

In an interview with Famitsu, Microsoft stated that it was not abandoning Japan and is planning end-of-year promotions.

 

Microsoft did say it recognises Tokyo Game Show’s importance, but it’s hard to say that the prescence of Microsoft, a company that’s always struggled in Japan, will be missed. However, its presence at Gamescom will definitely go noticed. Ditto for Nintendo, who is also sitting out this year’s Gamescom.

so kinect only sells in USA......

MS sold 20 million Kinects

 

They are not in Gamescom or TGS because MS now doesn't treat Xbox as a secondary source of income

Many of the trailers of games were shown in Microsoft conferences itself

MS Conferences are no more about Windows and Office .. They have a share of Xbox too

 

It is just a change in their strategy

I dont know what does that have to be with xbox as secondary or prime source of income.TGS is a video gaming event and second biggest after E3. MS presence is gonna be missed by japanese xbox fans.
