Microsoft has announced that it will not be attending the Tokyo Game Show in Japan this September. Japanese magazine, Famitsu reported that the Xbox division will not be at TGS 2015, but will make other arrangements to convey Xbox news to it’s Japanese fans.
Historically, the Xbox platform has not performed well in Japan and is considered more of a niche product. Given their status in the Japanese market it is not surprising that they have decided to forego the cost and time factors involved in hosting a booth there.
Tokyo Game Show 2015 takes place on September 19th – 20th, and will be held at the Makuhari Messe in Chiba, Japan.
