    Another event joins the likes of every other gaming convention and trade show of 2020. The big Japanese gaming convention, Tokyo Game Show, has just been cancelled, with, yes, you guessed it, a digital streaming event that will be aired online instead. Previously set for September 24th to September 27th, Tokyo Game Show will be rescheduled to fit the new format, which will be further explained later this May. This is the latest trade show to be cancelled outright or forced into going digital, following E3, Gamescom, Evo 2020, and more.

    Should have waited to see what September was going to be like before canceling, anyway I was most likely going to read what was shown.
    With the way things are right now chances are online is going to be how everything is shown for years to come.

    That's odd, considering Japan has a bigger emphasis societally on keeping things clean and on wearing masks before the current situation in the US here.

    I'd imagine it would be more problematic/annoying to cancel at a later than to wait and hope that it would possible to run, especially where things like Hotels, flights, venues, etc. may be involved.

    How am I to play demos? If they put all the demos that would be there on PSN, I might prefer this way.

    Last few days, there have been less than 30 NEW cases a day in Tokyo, but even if they changed their mind again and opened it, I'll most likely not be here for it. I'll probably still be out to sea, with no plans of stopping anywhere at all, even home.

    Damn shame too. There is always so much eye candy there :wub:
