1UP's Matt Leone writes about what to expect from Leipzig's Games Convention:
"Far Cry 2 vs. Crysis: Now that Crysis -- the game from the makers of Far Cry that looks a lot like Far Cry -- has a release date, its Leipzig showing will be one of the last before the game ships, and we've confirmed that there will be new content on display at the show. But while EA has a nearly-complete game, Ubisoft will show Far Cry 2 -- the actual sequel from a new development team -- for the first time. With one of the minds that helped shape Splinter Cell Chaos Theory behind it, I'm excited to see what Ubisoft comes up with, and how the two offspring compare.
Rockstar Stepping Up: Rockstar announced a few days ago that the first PS3/360-gen Midnight Club will make its debut at the show, along with the Wii version of Rockstar Presents Table Tennis. In some ways, this makes for a convenient distraction from the recent GTA4 delay announcement, but with Rockstar having a low key presence at E3 in recent years, this splash of support for Games Convention is a pretty big deal. That, and I've always had a soft spot for the Midnight Club games, and it'll be interesting to see how Table Tennis makes the jump to Wii, considering it was the first game to use Rockstar's RAGE graphics engine (which is also being used for GTA4). Not to get too far ahead of ourselves (this is not a hint at any secret info, I promise), but if Rockstar was to ever port GTA4 to Wii, this first look at Table Tennis may offer some clues on how they would go about it."
