TGS 09As Heath Ledger once said, here we… go.

SCEI president Kaz Hirai has been confirmed as the main keynote speaker for this year’s Tokyo Game Show. It’ll be the first keynote from Sony in two years, their third in four years with Hirai last doing the keynote in 2007, the year then SCEI president Ken Kutaragi keynoted.

Last year’s keynote was done by John Schappert who was at the time of the keynote corporate vice president of Xbox.

Hirai’s keynote is title “New Tactics for 2009″ and will kick off at 10:30am, preceeded by a panel involving Capcom, Bandai Namco, Square Enix and Sony.

Is there a hint in the keynote title? PS3 Slim (if not in Cologne)? Price cut? RIIIIIIIIIIIIDGE RACER 8?
