Just if someone hasn't noticed yet, IGN has a nice and simple table of Leipzig news and updates for plenty of titles here (http://games.ign.com/index/gc/2008/), and it's supposed to be update as they get the news. :)

EDIT: I'm just extremly excited about Heavy Rain - finally something! :jmp:

Have you seen the new screens? They were added into an interview with the Company director (Mr. Cage) and I think they show off some of the characters.

I did, but I sure hope they're going to give us something more than that in Leipzig, especially after the game not being mentioned once on E3.

nope, just Sony

good for us PS3 owners i suppose, and Sony also, extra coverage/air time for what they have to show :D

maybe the other two will show up at the Tokyo event instead

it is also said not only do Sony have the above listed games on show but that they also have 12 separate announcements to make regarding it's product range (PS2,PSP,PS3) trying to verify that though

good news for us if they do have additional announcements to make :jmp:(even if it's just 1st party stuff)

19-08-08, 18:00
you have to show us videos of TRU, PoP, RE5, SH: Homecoming, PS3 Home, and much more at the convention!!!!!

19-08-08, 18:05
I'm particularly interested on PoP, Rise of the Argonauts, and Sacred 2. :D
I was expecting to see Blizzard there though, they were supposed to show more about Starcraft 2 and perhaps Diablo 3 on it...
It is going to have some private stands though right? For the press and some invited folks...

The Godfather II, eh? I only recently found out this game was in the works. I loved the films, and I enjoyed the previous game, so this should be interesting.

Yes, but the public hasn't heard anything, neither form the publisher nor from the press, which is really surprising if they're still planning to release this year. :(

Rise Of The Argonauts looks awesome to me! It's multiplatform too, so everyone should check it out when the time comes.

Just to correct something: Microsoft are attending but they have no press conference and they're only showcasing themselves with demos and booths. It's only Nintendo that are an absolute no show.

Considering Europe is Sony's largest Playstation fanbase it's no surprise they have such a large interest in Leipzig.

Their conference starts in a few minutes: http://www.eurogamer.net/article.php?article_id=218944

Updates (from IGN):

He's here to talk about Heavy Rain today. Key points: This will be mature/serious content. It's going to be accessible. It's going to be an emotional experience (moral choices and the like, the player will be playing the story).

David Cage, with Quantic Dream takes the stage. This is the big one. People applaud happily. "After being silent for a while, we're proud to be in Leipzig." He references Noman Soul, Fahrenheit (Indigo Prophecy) and then The Casting, that sweet technical demo that we all saw a while ago.


Your Virtual Pet. I thought it was something else, but I guess we're going to be raising 3D virtual pets with the power of the PS3. Trailer time. Using EyeToy, you can interact through the video and the little creature reacts to your gestures in real time. It shows it finishing in your drawings for you, after you've scanned it in, including making a fully functional little car. Now it's playing dress up. Crazy. Actual looks pretty cute, but let's see if the game is actually as awesome as the guitar-filled trailer.

Let's move on to something created out of Sony's London studio. The speaker is building this up, it better be good.... I have a feeling it's -- wait -- EyePet!

GONNA BE DISNEY SONGS IN SINGSTAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh, new service to play the tracks from our PS2 versions of the SingStar games onto your PS3! Just throw in the PS2 disc and you can grab the tracks! This will be available through a firmware update.

SingStar and the SingStore have proven to be incredibly popular. 2.2 million track downloads to date. SingStar for the win!


Music and video are focal points for the PAL territories. Streaming service will be launched Q1 of next year. Music download service will be Q3 of next year. Ah, to clarify then, there will be two services for boths streaming and downloading. Groovy.

You can use this streaming content to create custom playlists and it can be accessed via Remote Play on your PSP, and also including phone support. Wow, I'm actually pretty impressed by that

Speaker is -- again -- pleased to announce a new music service for 23 PAL territories. VidZones. It's going to be seperate from the already established video service. Intriguing. Unlimited streaming of music on demand, totally FREE of charge. Um, all kinds of awesome? Yes, yes it is.


LittleBigPlanet to be released on the 29th of October in the PAL territories. Host has high hopes for this game, as do I. Speaker is also pleased to announced a wireless keypad for PS3. It latches on to the top of the controller, kinda' like the 360 keypad, except for the top instead of the bottom. In my opinion, it looks a little bit... gigantic. It will be released in 8 different langauges. The keypad will also have mouse input as well, which could be quite handy

Speaker says they're announcing a special, limited edition 160 GB PS3 with the same specs, just more HD space. Priced 449 Euros. Will include 70 Euros of additional downloadable game content

The host talks shortly about Kaz Hirai. I think I can speak for all of us when I say that Kaz is the man. So, PS3 has a great year. Sales have grown to over 14 million worldwide, and 5.8 million through the end of July -- that's in the PAL territories. Friday of this week, 80 gig PS3 available!!!!! 399 Euros.

PSP 3000 will have built-in microphone and enhanced screen.

I wish they would hurry up and make these Heavy Rain videos available to the public!

Not sure on why they are already releasing an update to the PSP after the recent release of the slim, guess the lack of microphone in the slim has limited its skype use a bit. Sony get to keep the price at it's peak if they keep releasing new versions as well.

Sony certainly haven't announced anything spectacular enough to convert anyone else away from the 360 (disney songs?!! woot woot!) but it's still been an interesting convention, just hope they don't wait too long to put the Heavy Rain, POP and LBP vids up.

IGN has more info on Heavy Rain here (http://ps3.ign.com/articles/898/898580p1.html) and it seems that the events from the trailer will never be featured in the game itself, but everything else sounds amazing. :cln:

EDIT: Have you seen the new Mirror's Edge gameplay video? Click (http://ps3.ign.com/dor/objects/949457/mirrors-edge/videos/MirrorsEdge_082008.html). Amazing! :cln::cln:

Street Fighter 4




Ooh... we might get to see Fei Long and Dan Hibiki in action.

Suppose we can expect a new trailer too.

Capcom release a new Street Fighter IV (www.capcom.co.jp/sf4/ac1.html) teaser at all of these events.

This was the E3 one...
