Live from Leipzig – Details of tomorrow’s press conferences

By Patrick Garratt, Tuesday, 19 August 2008 15:39 GMT


We’re in Leipzig. We suffered the train with no air conditioning from Berlin. We gesticulated wildly to make a nice German lady understand that we wanted a return ticket to the Messe. We’re stealing Games Convention’s free wireless as we type. It’s all happening.

Games Convention 2008 kicks off properly tomorrow morning with the EA press conference at 9.00am CET. That’s 8.00am BST, if you’re in the UK. The biggie tomorrow is the Sony conference at 5.00pm CET. You can read timings for everything that’s going on tomorrow here. Below is listed everything we’ll going to (try to) live blog. All times are CET.

  • 9.00am – EA press conference
  • 10.00am – Konami press conference
  • 11.00am – Ubisoft press conference
  • 2.00pm – Activision press conference
  • 5.00pm – Sony press conference

We’ve got meetings tomorrow as well, so some of this might not happen, but we’ll do our damndest.

After the press day tomorrow, the consumer show itself starts, and we’re back to back with games viewings and interviews all day. The show’s massive this year, so keep it locked this week for everything GC.

Right. Coffee action.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.

  • Games Convention pictures looking awesome

    1UP has published loads of pictures from inside the Games Convention in Leipzig. As the event doesn’t start until tomorrow, it’s a little empty at the moment, but hopefully you can imagine the awesome that will unfold from tomorrow morning. Remember, will be a veritable news-a-thon tomorrow from 9am CET, so make sure you […]
