More garden-variety Asian women. Yawn.

Hey.That_Dude

I'm sorry they weren't Gyaru or Ganguro for you. or what ever Kei you're into.

My only complaint about any of the pictures on MPC is the size, why are they all so small? The preview in many cases shows the picture larger than the zoomed ones.

Hot women in costumes?! Bring it! Don't need to twist my arm.

No respect? Depends. It's all in the eye of the beholder. Could be a socio-cultural thing? I'm not sure.

Personally, attractive young ladies in any environment are fine with me whether it be a convention or any other kind of show. OH NO! You're HOT! GO AWAY! Ha! Uh...nuh. Young sexy women will never be a negative in any way for me.

The way one admires them is one's prerogative. Point of views vary. In this context I can see why they were hired with cosplay and all.

I kind of get the point of some individuals thinking it's "sexist" and all that. In the end, it's all about profits, image and exposure and trying to capture the attention of the demographics. In this context, hiring fat hairy men that smell like tobacco, chips and beer (and hamburgers) might not have the same effect and/or results. Then again, maybe fat dudes that smell like burgers could be a good way to attract some people.

PS. Pic #21! She's so cute! XOX!

If you're into men, that's ok. Like I said, to each his own and it's your prerogative. They do have to cater to all markets whether they be hetero, gay, lesbian or bi. It's all about the money in the end.

Gamers and game shows will never get any respect as long as the stereotype that we're all per-pubescent pervs exists. And unfortunately these game shows as well as the media (including Maximum PC) only reinforce that stereotype. I mean really, 50 pictures of a game show and probably 29 of them are of girls. Is this Maximum PC or Maxim?

spare us your feminist rant please. guys like cute girls, and only an idiot could get offended by that. and it looked to me like they were actually...wait for it... HAVING FUN!!! OH THE HORROR!!!

You're right. Guys like cute girls. However we don't (at least not the mature among us) buy our games because there's a half naked girl starring in it. I also don't buy hardware because a half naked girl is manning the display table. If anything I'm going to lose respect for the vendor. Clearly their product isn't strong enough to stand on its own merits if they feel that they have to showcase T&A to get my attention.

Hey.That_Dude

First: Market. This is Japan. Realize and Learn that there is Japanese way of doing things. They know what works best in their market share. I bet there were otome game characters as well but most Americans don't know what they are so they don't take photos of them.

Second: You might not buy the game for the particular woman holding it up but you are statistically more likely to buy the game if there is an attractive woman involved in your decision making process. In fact, even women appreciate female sales reps more than males sales reps., especially in the mostly male dominated catagories of gaming and technology.

And face it, it's not just games. It's cars. It's technology. There are a ton of markets that have been using pretty girls in skimpy outfits for years and years now. If you want to call it sexist, that's your opinion, but it works. And as long as it continues to sell product, it will continue to be a means of advertising.

Don't like it? Fine, vote with your wallet. Have fun being bored because you refused to by games you would have liked just because you didn't like it marketed by a lovely woman. In the mean time, I'll keep enjoying the eye candy.

dude you have issues, maybe you should calm the bleep down for crying out loud. everybody else looked at the cool pictures and moved on about their business, you looked at the pictures and then decided to give us all a lecture. if you get that angry about some pictures on the internet, for the love of God man don't LOOK at them. just because us men folk like cute chicks doesn't mean we're going to offer every girl we see twenty dolla to make us holla. I promise, ok?

Everyone else? I just see you whining that somebody else had an opinion that was different than yours? By all means, get your jollies off on pictures of half naked girls dressed like video game characters.

Sorry, I missed the half-naked girls. Can you point them out to me? I have seen more skin at the pool/beach than pictured here.

Agreed, sadly. Even for convention pics those were startlingly lacking in content and heavy on the sexism.
