Microsoft reveals Xbox One plans for Tokyo Game Show 2013

Microsoft's Xbox team has been busy this summer with appearances at E3, Comic-Con, the GameStop Expo, Gamescom and PAX Prime. Next week, the Xbox One roadshow heads to the eastern part of the globe with a major presence at the 2013 Tokyo Game Show in Japan, which starts Sept. 19.

You may remember that Microsoft made the decision not to attend TGS in 2012 but since they are planning to launch a new hardware console very soon, the company thought it made sense to show up this year. In addition to having a number of upcoming Xbox 360 games on the show floor, Microsoft's TGS 2013 website reveals it will have eight playable Xbox One games: "FIFA 14," "Kinect Sports Rivals," "Crimson Dragon," "Forza 5," "Ryse," "Max: The Curse of Brotherhood," "Killer Instinct" and "Titanfall."

As we have mentioned before, the two previous Xbox consoles have both been sales flops in Japan, despite Microsoft spending tons of money and time trying to get both consumers to buy the consoles as well as convincing Japanese developers to make exclusive games for its platform.

Microsoft might also use next week's TGS to make an announcement on when the Xbox One will launch in Japan. Sony has already announced a Feb. 22 launch for the rival PlayStation 4.
