TGS best-in-show award: Microsoft, Sony, Nintendo all win

After tallying votes from attendees, a committee chaired by Tokyo University Professor Emeritus Takeshi Yoro awarded 11 games from a field of 650 titles not yet in Japanese stores for best in show status.

In the words of the committee, these are the "best games showing particular promise" (in no particular order):

  • Elebits (Konami) for the Wii
  • Gyakuten Saiban 4 [Phoenix Wright] (Capcom) for the DS
  • Gran Turismo HD (Sony) for the PS3
  • The Eye of Judgment (Sony) for the PS3
  • Seiken Densetsu 4 [Dawn of Mana] (Square Enix) for the PS2
  • Tales of Destiny (Namco Bandai) for the PS2
  • Blue Dragon (Microsoft) for the Xbox 360
  • Heavenly Sword (Sony) for the PS3
  • Metal Gear Solid Portable Ops (Konami) for the PSP
  • Monster Hunter Portable 2nd (Capcom) for the PSP
  • Lost Planet (Capcom) for the Xbox 360
Any surprises here? We certainly wouldn't have guessed that Elebits would be on this list after our experience with it E3 and at the Nintendo event earlier this month.
