Son, what didn’t happen today. Australia is the place to be, as opposed to, e.g., bored out of your skull in a German hotel room.

You might have noticed something of a million article gap between the European news wrap and the start of Australian activity. The less said about that the better. it’s not our fault if our gamescom freelance newsbots are keen as mustard and the rest of us, uh, a little distracted.

And that, as they say in the some business or other, is a wrap. Pat and Johnny will be spoiling you rotten with news from the various press events taking place in Cologne today, including EA, Sony and Microsoft – plus, Stace, Steph and co will be manning the pumps throughout the day.
