Spring Tokyo Game Show Canceled

Spring Tokyo Game Show Canceled

by October 5, 2001

From FGN Online:

The Japanese-based Computer Entertainment Software Association has revealed that the Spring Tokyo Game Show 2002 will not go ahead.

The company said that falling attendance from both exhibitors and visitors forced the decision. Instead the Tokyo Game Show will now become an annual event.

Microsoft and the February launch of Xbox are expected to be affected most by the cancellation, as it would have been a prime event to push Xbox to Japanese consumers.

Fan reaction coming…
