Tokyo game show has received big response from Japan and abroad as the base station which leads the world and sends the latest information of commuter entertainment software and as an event which plays a very important role in developing culture in this industry worldwide.

We entered the year 2000, and various kinds of information infrastructure, such as home video game machines which work with various interfaces, including DVD and internet terminals, PCs and mobile phones, have been organized in the entertainment software industry. Under these circumstances, beyond the traditional framework of games, a blending of games and a wide variety of entertainment, such as movies and music, is accelerated in the entertainment software. This will bring everybody closer to games and create more diverse ways to enjoy games in our daily life.

As we enter the 21st century very soon, the computer entertainment industry is ready to take the first step toward a new area through "Tokyo Game Show 2000 Autumn."
