European News Wrap, August 5 – What happened today

Friday, 5 August 2011 16:00 GMT By Johnny Cullen

And that’s the end of another European news week. And with it, we’re near one week to gamescom. I’m pumped beyond belief for Cologne. Are you?

Just a final reminder: we’re closing our massive Battlefield 3 competition in about an hour or so. You definitely do not want to miss out on this. I mean, would you want to miss out on going to DICE in Stockholm and not play Battlefield 3? I hope not. You’ve got an hour to get your entry in.

In the meantime, the news. Here it is.

And that’s it. Now to finally get a harcut before Germany. At least, I hope I will before gamescom drags me down like it has all week. I should probably download the latest Brink DLC too while I’m at it. I actually might sort out a night on Brink with you guys if you’re up for it. I’ll post details on the forum if I ever get to it, and I’ll even drag Pat along as well.

Have a good weekend!
