The four-day TGS 2011 event unveiled new title releases, and interesting game developer's announcements.

The Tokyo Game Show, which was held annually in Japan, is one of the two largest video game expos/conventions being hosted outside the U.S. The other event is the Gamescom in Cologne, Germany. The TGS is actually designed to be the best place where game developers from different parts of the globe come together to show off their upcoming games and even console devices.

This year’s TGS event was said to be a success. It was able to host numerous Japanese developers’ game revelations, announcements, and declarations. Aside from this conference, there are also pre-TGS 2011 pressers that were held last week — including the Nintendo’s press conference, wherein most of the upcoming 3DS titles were revealed, and Sony’s pre-TGS keynote, which unveils the official launching date for PS Vita.

It’s undeniably true that the Tokyo Game Show has always been the home to a number of noteworthy game announcements. That said, GADG has put up a brief recap of TGS 2011 for those who weren’t able to attend the actual event.

Sony has revealed the final specifications for the upcoming PlayStation Vita.

Finally, the long wait is over! Sony just unveiled the official specifications for its upcoming PlayStation Portable Vita. As confirmed by the manufacturer, the handheld gaming device will be carrying a 512MB of RAM, and not 256MB RAM as rumored.

It was last month when Novarama’s CEO, Dani Sánchez-Crespo, hinted about the RAM capacity of the anticipated PSP successor. “Remember the PSP had 32MB of RAM, we have about ten times that now,” he stated. If you were to do the math, his statement would rather mean that the Vita might be able to support a memory of more than 256 RAM.

Sony Poll Fans for PlayStation Vita Peripherals

Written on August 16, 2011 by Adam Eve

Sony is collecting a consensus between fans on what PlayStation Vita peripheral would they like to see. Would this bring a UMD converter in the market soon?

Sony polls their fans on what PlayStation Vita peripherals would they like to see at its Japanese community site. It is obvious that the firm is using their time well, now that the PS Vita will be rolling out in Japan this year, followed by US and Europe early next year. And though the community site is written in Japanese characters, browsing through the pages will tell you that a UMD converter is on top of the wish list. Other peripherals mentioned were cradle with HDMI out, full keyboard attachment, and secondary battery.

It is not surprising that a UMD converter becomes a top request, since there are still UMD-only PSP titles like Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core and Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep. Hopefully, this move from Sony could be an indication that a peripheral as such would be considered.

Unlike the memory stick, the said memory card appearance is very close to a variety of SD(Secure Digital) cards that has an ultra small flash memory card designed, it just have a little notch in its side confirming they hew to Sony’s unfortunate habit of using proprietary storage formats. But the cost of Vita’s memory card is still shrouded with mysteries.
