Grand Theft Auto V - Touch & Try at Tokyo Game Show 2013

Japan is getting a taste of the phenomenon that is Rockstar Games' Grand Theft Auto V at Tokyo Game Show 2013.

At its own Touch & Try pavilion at the show, Rockstar showed what it's like to navigate Los Santos and Blaine County. The company has built an incredibly detailed and lifelike world, which we are told will take inestimable hours of time sitting on your couch to fully explore and appreciate.

Those at the show are being given a taste and the consensus that we heard matches the enthusiasm that we're reading online.

McDonald's in Japan is going to release 4 burgers, 3 side dishes, 6 drinks/desserts, and 1 breakfast dish, which are made in the image of 8 FIFA World Cup participating countries, starting on May 27. That includes burgers with soccer ball shaped buns.

Soccer ball buns are cute!

Each item will be available for a limited time only (dates are subject to change).

Together with the opening of the Pokémon-themed exhibition "Pokémon the movie XY", Pikachu Cafe will open from July 19 through August 31 at Tokyo City View (observation deck area) at Roppongi Hills in Tokyo.

Akihabaranews.com - au by KDDI - 2013 winter rollout

au by KDDI had its 2013 winter product rollout on October 2, 2013, at Shinagawa Prince Hotel in Minato-ku, Tokyo, Japan.

The presentation by au's CEO Takashi Tanaka began with the accident that his remote control for his presentation didn't work. It was an ominous beginning as au had run into a few network failure issues throughout the year but Mr. Tanaka took it in stride and joked that he hoped it would be the last failure this year.
