Koelnmesse boss Oliver P Kuhrt has issued a stark statement to Leipziger Messe in the face of the East German outfit announcing GC2009 dates. Translated, it says something along the lines of, "Give it up: everyone's coming to gamescom next year."

“It was to be expected that Leipziger Messe" would announce dates for a 2009 Games Convention, said Kuhrt.

"They will have to then do this, however, to a large extent without the industry."
