Leipzig Games Convention 2007 link dump
Live text Sony press conference here. Announced Tivo-like function for PS3. Redesigned PSP will arrive in Europe next month in boring black, white or silver. Two boring film tie-in special editions will also be available (Simpsons and Spiderman). No Europe PS3 proper price cut or Dual Shock 3 announced. Conference mainly made up of fluffware for non-gamer journos and lifestyle people. Grrr...
New Metal Gear Solid 4 trailer reveals four new bosses. Looks hot. Europe won't get screwed, Kojima promised. Video maybe tomorrow.
Nominations for best of Leipzig Games Convention 2007 right here.
PS2 Rock Band exclusive track list. Still do not know what the fuss is about. Get a real guitar people and form a real band! And learn to play Faith No More properly.
Iga developing yet another Castlevania DS... maybe another PSP version as well.
Still no sign of a proper next-gen Rayman platformer. If mini-games is your thing (which shouldn't be a problem considering 90% of Wii titles are mini-games) check out the new gameplay videos from Rayman Raving Rabbids 2.
Nintendo still turning its back on conventional video gaming. Ridiculous Wii Chess apparently in sight. Nothing new will be announced, instead time will be spent gloating about Wii success to journos. WHERE ARE THE GAMES???
"PlayStation 3 is very much benefiting from Gears of War. That sounds silly, but it's very much benefiting from Gears of War"
With waggle wand wonder, 3rd party Wii developers aren't even trying any longer. Check out this mobile phone game, to be released on Wii soon.
Konami announces new Track & Field for DS!
Half of Germany will be video gamers in three years time.
Far Cry 2 looks lovely. Not as lovely as Crysis though.
Nokia announced details on new N-Gage platform. Hope it doesn't suck. Will target more casual gamers. Someone better reminds Nokia that S60v3 sucks without more RAM.
Updates over the next few days
