Tokyo Game Show

Gran Turismo PSP

Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. (SCEI) announced that Gran Turismo PSP will cost 4,400 yen for the digital version and 5,400 yen for the UMD. This information was revealed at Sony's Tokyo Game Show 2009 press conference. It will be interesting to see if other territories follow suit and offer cheaper prices for digital downloads. Considering that packaging, shipping, retail, and other costs are removed from the equation, a discount seems reasonable. However, I can easily see publishers saying that digital downloads offer instant entertainment and the price should be the same since you don't have to trek to a store or wait for a game to arrive to you by mail. (It's BS, but I can see publishers saying it.)

What do you think of Sony Japan's pricing for digital games? Will it become the norm in America and Europe? Or will the prices be the same for digital and physical copies? 

Some of you might be too young to remember the Army Men series -- and for that you should be thankful. Let's hope the newly announced Toy Soldiers for Xbox Live Arcade goes in a completely different direction. From the looks of the debut trailer, they're on the right track. WWI trench warfare...it's so cute!

Monkeys, huh? Those little guys, it seems, are capable of anything. And, if this Super Monkey Ball Step & Roll  trailer from TGS 2009 is any indication, they're getting smarter by the moment. Watch as they run around pursuing bananas in glass balls, try their simian hand at skydiving, and even race sophisticated cars!

Watch the trailer now, and you'll see for yourself. Monkeys!

Crackdown 2 TGS 2009 Screenshots

At Tokyo Game Show 2009, Microsoft has released the first-ever screenshots from the upcoming Crackdown 2, which will be coming for the Xbox 360 at some point in 2010. We know there's not much to be gleaned about the game from these screens, but they sure look pretty, don't they?

Check out the rest of the Crackdown 2 photo gallery here.

Capcom's just released the newest cinematic trailer for Lost Planet 2 at TGS, and it's definitely meant to show off the variety of locations in the game. Split into 3 "episodes," we get to see action in the jungle, moving through city streets at night, and an epic battle on a train speeding through the desert.

Check out the new trailer below!

Like most Koei games, Trinity: Souls of Zill O'll has you beating the crap out of a lot of enemies. Unlike most Koei games, this one doesn't have you playing as an exaggerated version of figure in Chinese and/or Japanese history. The art direction definitely leans towards fantasy and the trailer makes me want to see more of it. Hacking and slashing against mindless minions, occasionally taking on a boss character, is one of my favorite gaming pastimes.

The strangely-named CEO of Grasshopper Studios in Japan, Suda 51, sat down and gave us a little wisdom about the upcoming No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle, including some new game mechanics, a phalanx of 2D mini-games, and some speculation as to what Nintendo might be up to with their newest hardware.

Watch and learn.
