the capital city of Kanagawa Prefecture and the second largest city in Japan by population after Tokyo and most populous municipality of Japan. It lies on Tokyo Bay, south of Tokyo, in the Kantō region of the main island of Honshu. It is a major commercial hub of the Greater Tokyo Area.
Yokohama’s population of 3.6 million makes it Japan’s largest incorporated city.
Yokohama developed rapidly as Japan’s prominent port city following the end of Japan’s relative isolation in the mid-19th century, and is today one of its major ports along with Kobe, Osaka, Nagoya, Hakata, Tokyo, and Chiba.
Here in the SCE booth at Tokyo Game Show 2011, we’re offering experiences for even more users. Firstly, there are our three platforms, the PS3, PSP, and now, the PS Vita. We can provide a variety of experiences for people who play each platform. So we’ve set up a space where more people can try more titles.
The main attraction here is PS Vita. There are over 30 titles available on about 80 consoles. We think this is a very strong lineup of titles.
The main feature of PS Vita, which you’ll see as soon as you pick it up, is the 5-inch OLED display. Not only is the screen big, it’s also very clear, thanks to the OLED technology. Another feature is the variety of interfaces. For example, PS Vita has analog pads on the left and right, a six-axis acceleration sensor, and GPS. This diverse combination offers a variety of gaming experiences. Finally, another feature is network access. This is the first game console with an always-on 3G network connection, so users can communicate with each other anytime, anywhere. We think this will lead to new gaming experiences.
