By the time this year’s Tokyo Game Show kicks off in September, both the PS5 and the Xbox Series X will be right around the corner, which means that the event will serve as the perfect stage for both next-gen consoles to take the spotlight and show themselves off. We’ve likely know a great deal more about both consoles than we do right now as it is, but new details will probably be coming in thick and fast at that time.

Almost as if confirming this notion, the CESA (Computer Entertainment Supplier’s Association), the organizers of the Tokyo Game Show, recently sent out a press release, stating that this year’s show will be focused on the future of gaming.

“The theme of TGS2020 is ‘The Future Touches Gaming First,'” says the press release (translated by Twinfinite). “Games are the most updated and accessible means to experience the emerging technologies that will unlock new possibilities for the future. With the theme of this year, the event expects to provide an opportunity for people to touch and play the latest games and immerse themselves in the feel of an exciting future that is just around the corner.”

Here is where things get really interesting, with the CESA briefly touching upon what the aforementioned exciting future entails, from “novel game consoles for the next generation”, to “the full-fledged launch of cloud gaming”, ” to “the start of 5G services for commercial use”, and more.

While Microsoft have been fairly open and more talking about the Xbox Series X so far, having already showed its form factor as well, Sony definitely have not. By the time TGS rolls around, Microsoft will already have dropped a lot of next-gen info at E3- but Sony aren’t attending E3, so it’ll be interesting to see how both companies approach TGS.

Meanwhile, in related news, in the last few days, Sony have cancelled their plans for PAX East 2020 and for GDC 2020 back-to-back due to concerns about the coronavirus outbreak.
