Xbox 360 Arrives at CeBIT, But not A PS3 in Sight

Hall 22 is the place to be at this year's CeBIT for gamers. Not only will it host the World Cyber Games when it kicks off on Thursday, but there's also a presence from Razer, Electronic Arts, Roccat, AMD and Microsoft, all of whom are planning to make an impact amongst the gaming crowds.

It's Microsoft and the Xbox 360 who are out in force though, because aside from the huge World Cyber Games main stage, where 200 gamers from across the world will be battling it out for International pride, it has a moderate presence with the Xbox 360 console and considering that CeBIT is primarily a technology show, they dominate a decent chunk of the hall, where incidentally there's not a PS3 in sight.

CeBIT is the world's largest trade fair showcasing digital IT and telecommunications solutions for home and work environments. The key target groups are users from industry, the wholesale/retail sector, skilled trades, banks, the services sector, government agencies, science and all users passionate about technology.

CeBIT offers an international platform for comparing notes on current industry trends, networking, and product presentations. Deutsche Messe AG has organized CeBIT in Hannover each spring since 1986.

Based on the immenent titles and applications forthcoming on the PS3, I don't think Sony is concerned much with venues like CeBit or even GDC for that matter. I think they're waiting for the spacious confines of the Los Angeles Convention Center this Summer, where they'll be in full stride with games like MGS4 and GTAIV, but we might even see KZII betas at that time LBP updates and of course very relevant HOME news. I can't wait for E3.

Also dont they have a gamers day planned?

proArchy4006d ago

i agree that they're probably going to have a huge showing at E3, but i think you underestimated their presence at GDC. Microsoft used GDC as yet another platform to reach consumers (Cliffy B chainsawing his way onto the stage to announce Gears2), where Sony used it as it was meant to be used - as a platform to reach developers. They showed off numerous new Home features, announced the free Phyre engine, and touted the PSN's functionality. Maybe its not too amazing for consumers, but it was aimed at the game developing community.

Insomniac also released coding for free to developers having a hard time witht he cell. Those guys are amazing devs. Like you said ... it wasn't a bad showing, it just wasn't geared towards the consumer at all.
