In Japan, the Tokyo Game Show (TGS) is gaming’s main event. This year, heavyweights Sony and Microsoft are set to square off at Chiba’s Makuhari Messe convention center with brand new consoles in tow. Who will come out on top?

Sony’s PlayStation 4 and Microsoft’s Xbox One are both prime examples of what’s in store for the next generation of console gaming: more realistic graphics, increased processing power, and greater social networking options — not to mention new game controllers. TGS will be the first chance for gamers in Japan to get a shot at these next-gen Sony and Microsoft machines (it’s important to note that Nintendo traditionally sits TGS out).

In a time of both misinformation and too much information, quality journalism is more crucial than ever.
