When Sony Europe boss David Reeves said that we'd see some Sony announcements at Games Convention 2008 we imagined all kinds of things. After figuring out Sony announcing the PS4 isn't all that likely we put together our Top 10: Essential Leipzig PS3 announcements. Based on what Sony showed at E3 and what we know is coming, these are the 10 announcements that gamers everywhere want to see. The kind of announcements and events that will have people talking about Sony and the PS3 for weeks after the show is finished.
10. WipEout HD release date
For whatever reason WipEout HD has slipped off the release schedule. Having played a multi-track preview build a good few months back it shot to the top of our most wanted PSN titles, so news of problems came as a big disappointment. With E3 coming and going without even a sniff of a release date we're hoping Games Convention 2008 will be the event where Sony finally gives us the info we've all been waiting for. It doesn't even have to be arriving in the next few months. We just want to know that it's not stuck in some kind of development limbo that reports suggest. Some brand new gameplay footage showcasing the incredible HD visuals wouldn't go amiss either.
9. MAG Gameplay/info
This was Sony's big E3 reveal. A massive 256-player online modern warfare title. It sounded great, but the actual game was nowhere to be seen at E3. The CG trailer showed what kind of game we will eventually play, but it didn't show anything approaching a gameplay situation. If Sony wants to make a splash at Games Convention 2008 it'll need to do more than show the same games it's been showing for the last 12 months. We want an in-game MAG video demonstration, ideally on Sony's consumer stand so everyone can get a look.
