TGS is Japan’s most anticipated annual gaming event. Day 1 and 2 of the event are restricted to industry and press while days 3 and 4 are public days.
The biggest booths are occupied by the console makers Sony and Nintendo (Microsoft no longer attends). Mobile gaming is huge business in Japan so there are usually large stands by Japanese power houses like Gree and Mobage.
In addition to the business part of the show, there is also a large turnout of cosplayers and an equally large turnout of photographers on the public days.
