320w ago - Microsoft has confirmed to VG247 this morning that there will be no Xbox 360 press conference at Games Convention next week.

"No press conference from us per se," we were told by a rep via email, who added that the company's booth will instead have rolling demos on its exterior and behind closed doors slots.

The news leaves only one platform holder conference left for GC 2008, that being Sony at 5pm CET on Wednesday, August 20.

Nintendo confirmed in May that it would be avoiding the show altogether.

The show's press day is next Wednesday, and we'll be there. Sony's press conference takes place at 5pm ECT that evening. We'll bring you more details closer to the time.

329w ago - Following talk that Microsoft is to announce two new major games in its E3 press conference, we have learned from trusted sources that the announcements are to be "interesting, partly spectacular, and a bit desperate."

Microsoft confirmed its E3 roster last night, listing Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts, Fable 2, Gears of War 2, Halo Wars, Too Human and Viva Piñata: Trouble in Paradise as its first-party offering for the Holiday season.

The firm's E3 conference will take place on July 14 at 10.30am PST.

334w ago - Despite frequent delays to flagship products such as the PlayStation 3 and PlayTV, Sony Computer Entertainment has long emphasised its commitment to Europe.

The console manufacturer made a huge splash last year at the Leipzig Game Convention -the continent's biggest trade show- when it announced a plethora of new products such as the Go!Cam PSP camera and the Go!Explore GPS navigation system.

Today, the Japanese electronics firm will return to Europe for a new event in London, with SCE president Kaz Hirai and Sony Computer Entertainment Europe president David Reeves both in attendance.

The event at the indigO2 -part of what was once the Millennium Dome- features an extensive press conference hosted by Reeves and Kirai that GameSpot UK will be liveblogging, followed by an opportunity for the press to sample products from Sony's 2008 lineup. No specific games from Sony's roster have been confirmed, although European-developed LittleBigPlanet, Killzone 2, and Home are likely to be highlights.
