News Summary: Mobile, social games at Tokyo show

NEW PRODUCTS: The Tokyo Game Show showcased new trends in games: Smartphones and tablets are luring users from the once-dominant consoles devoted to video games.

THE OLD: Some of the booths at the show looked familiar, with big screens running trailers of the latest versions of hit games like "Biohazard" from Capcom and "Final Fantasy" from Square Enix.

THE NEW: But Gree, founded in 2004, had the second biggest booth at the show after Capcom. It has boomed because of its social games, often played on smartphones, in which players can interact and cooperate with each other.
