The theme for Tokyo Game Show 2012 was announced in a new press release: "Spreading Smiles through GAMES." You can't make this stuff up:

Solo-play games have evolved into games that can be played with friends and family and into games through which one can connect with people all over the world. We can now experience unprecedented "pleasure" with games. Pleasure to experience the wonder of games and share emotions, and pleasure to meet with friends and pals through games...Connecting with people increases the pleasure of games. Pleasure then generates smiles, connecting more people. The world becomes filled with a chain of smiles generated by games - such a world has already started.

Be honest: you cried a little.

This year a new official video streaming channel will be kicked off at TGS. Footage of the event will be streamed around the world in real time. I hope to videobomb.

This year TGS has been set for September 20-23 in Chiba's Makuhari Messe convention center. They're expecting 195,000 attendees this year as they've reached out to the rest of Asia with their Business Game Summit. Strategy game fans will also enjoy this year's Asia e-Sports Cup event, where top players will compete.
