Ah yes, our fearless leader Niero along with Nick, Dale, Florian, and Eliza are all making their way to Tokyo right now and we back home couldn’t be any more
jealous, envious, full of rage, prouder of them. We’ve already told you about what Square, Capcom and Sony are planning on showing. Now lets find out what Konami has under their hat.
We’re already well aware of their what their main game of the event is going to be (and undoubtedly the biggest game of TGS), Metal Gear Solid 4. It’s going to be really interesting to see how this will affect all the hypesauce that’s on Halo 3 right now.
Aside from MGS 4, they have plenty of other games to show off. What are they? The jump button will reveal all!
KONAMI ANNOUNCES PREMIUM LINE UP AT 2007 TOKYO GAME SHOW BASED ON TOP VIDEOGAME FRANCHISES

Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. to showcase a blockbuster line up of new videogames at the 2007 Tokyo Game Show, featuring the world premiere of the first playable Metal Gear Solid 4 for the PLAYSTATION®3; a portfolio of new health and fitness-focused games for the Nintendo Wii™ and Nintendo DS™; and brand new Winning Eleven titles.

Also in store for franchise fans will be Metal Gear Solid Portable Ops + for the PSP® system, Metal Gear Solid Online 2.0 and Metal Gear Solid 2 Bande Desinee, the digital graphic novel.
Konami urges fans to “Move your Body!” with several innovative new Nintendo™DS titles that leverage popular fitness genres, including Pilates™, Yoga™ and Skin Basic™, while Wii Fitness™ and the brand new Dance Dance Revolution Hottest Party™ will get players’ hearts beating even faster. Big Head Baseball™ and Big Head MLB™ for the Nintendo Wii™ will also be featured for sports fans, along with two new Winning Eleven™ titles, Winning Eleven 2008™ and Winning Eleven 11™.
Rounding out this must-see line up is Time Hollow™ for the Nintendo DS and Silent Hill Origins™: Zero that offer gamers pulse-quickening entertainment on the PSP® system.
First of all, Big Head Baseball? What the hell is that? A way for the Japanese to make fun of all the steroid abusing American Baseball players? I like! Also, it for some reason reminds me of that one Simpsons episode where Mr. Burns creates a company baseball team and one of the players heads becomes gigantic (useless Simpsons info is useless).
Anyway, the real game I’m interested in hearing more about is Silent Hill Origins. Sure, it seems to be bitting from Resident Evil 4, but that’s not such a bad thing, is it?
