Tokyo Game Show attracted 160,000 visitors

The Tokyo Game Show, which took place from Sept. 24 to Sept. 26, attracted just over 160,000 visitors, according to the organizers.

The Computer Entertainment Supplier's Association had been predicting attendance at the three-day event would be about 150,000 people, which is the same as last year, but in the end a total of 160,096 people were counted as visiting. The first day, which is officially closed to all but trade visitors and media, attracted 32,867 people with Saturday attracting 64,164 and Sunday attracting 63,065.

This made the 2004 event the third-best attended Tokyo Game Show in the event's history. The top two highest attendances were both recorded in 1999, when the show was held twice. The first event that year attracted 163,448 visitors while the second attracted a record 163,866, the organizers said on Tuesday.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
