I haven’t seen it yet, but PlayStation Vita looks like a neat device with lots of interesting functions. I’m dying to have a go on one. I’m going to line up now, but I think we got here too late!

“Vanguard Storm” looks cool — that’s a new Square Enix game. “Metal Gear Solid” for 3DS looks great too, and the (merchandise) stores have good deals. Also, the cosplay’s better this year!

It’s my first time here. Rather than one particular game, I’m happy to see all the different upcoming titles in one place. I’m from Chiba, so it’s close to home.

It’s my first time too. It’s fun to see which games are coming out next, and to see the sequels to games I already love. I’m also very interested in the Vita, but I haven’t had a chance to play it yet.

“Monster Hunter 3 (Tri) G” on 3DS — the graphics are gorgeous. I arrived too late to play the demo, though. I wouldn’t mind trying the new extra thumb-pad peripheral they’re releasing with it, too.

I love “Monster Hunter,” so I’m keen to see how the 3DS version shapes up and how the 3-D has been implemented. I usually play it on PSP, so I’m a bit sad that the series is moving to 3DS.
