The Consumer Entertainment Supplier’s Association (CESA), that organizes Tokyo Game Show each year, kindly provided DualShockers with a breakdown of the games showcased on the show floor.

Below you can check out the full number, with data from last year between parenthesis, for the sake of comparison.

  • iOS: 220 (252)
  • Android: 203 (252)
  • Other Smartphone: 15 (6)
  • Nintendo 3DS: 36 (29)
  • Wii U: 13 (23)
  • PlayStation 4: 116 (103)
  • PlayStation 3: 15 (39)
  • PlayStation Vita: 48 (62)
  • Xbox One: 30 (27)
  • PC: 178 (135)
  • PC Browser Game: 21 (28)
  • Steam: 74 (23)
  • VR: 110 (no data)

We also get a breakdown by genre:

  • Action: 205 (208)
  • RPG: 127 (189)
  • Indie Games: 154 (no data)
  • Simulation: 105 (122)
  • Puzzle: 76 (62)
  • Adventure: 91 (70)
  • Sports: 27 (8)
  • Shooting: 34 (42)

  • Action RPG: 54 (21)
  • Action Adventure: 36 (15)
  • Racing 7 (6)
  • Other: 159 (222)

The PS4 definitely leads consoles, also increasing its numbers from last year. The PS Vita is also on top of portable, pretty much making the console exhibition rather PlayStation-centric. It’s worth mentioning, though, that Nintendo traditionally does not attend Tokyo Game Show, so its first party line-up is missing.

PC has seen a steep increase, even due to the high presence of indie games, but mobile still takes the crown, while the numbers are a bit lower than last year.

VR is, of course, a big part of this year’s exhibition, with a whopping 110 games on show.

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
