Microsoft Announce Xbox Won't Be At Gamescom And Tokyo Game Show This Year

Microsoft have announced Xbox won't be attending either Gamescom or Tokyo Game Show this year. instead, Microsoft say they will focus on more localized promotions. The Xbox is the best selling console across the USA show attending the USA E3 show makes sense for Microsoft. skipping Tokyo Game Show makes sense as the Xbox doesn't sell there. skpping Gamescom and focusing on local shows also makes sense as, like Japan, the PS3 is the main seller across Europe. however, the Xbox 360 does sell well in a couple of European countries.
