Konami at GC 2006

Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH is set to storm this year's game Convention in Leipzig, with the first showing of key titles.

The five-day event is seen as the ultimate European gaming convention, and opens its doors on August 23rd. Located in Hall 5, Booth F02, Konami is sure to impress with a host of product debuts, including the first showing of the highly anticipated Pro Evolution Soccer 6 for Xbox 360. The publisher will be showing the new version of its famous football-simulation for the first time on a next generation format, and Konami will back up this landmark premiere with further titles for existing and forthcoming formats.

"This year, Leipzig is not only an European meeting point for gamers and traders, but also the starting point for one of the most exciting transitions in console gaming ever," commented Martin Schneider, Sales and Marketing Director Germany for Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH. "We are looking forward to presenting some famous guests who will personally present their games to the audience."

EKWB reportedly plagued with financial disarray many gaming pc's left without parts

EK Cooling allegedly has slipped itself into a hot soup of seemingly endless financial woes, where it has not paid its staff, suppliers, and contractors for many months as the company is facing liquidity problems and a surplus of inventory left unsold, stuck in the warehouse for a more extended period. Gamers Nexus investigated these claims made by former and current personnel, where he found trails of unpaid bills lasting as long as three to four months and unpaid raises that accumulated for almost a year.

EK Water Blocks has two entities—a Slovenian-based headquarters and a US-based subsidiary, EK Cooling Solutions. Steve narrated the series of events in detail, stating that the company was reportedly irresponsible and negligent regarding payment. Consequently, partners and employees are forced to share the burden of alleged mismanagement. It all begins with its extensive range of products, leading to a surplus of goods. EK has over 230 water blocks, 40 liquid cooling kits, 85 reservoirs, 40 pumps, 73 radiators, and 212 miscellaneous accessories.

Yes this is not about video games directly but indirectly this will impact the pc gaming/workstation space hard.

This company is massive one of two in the water cool space so if it goes poof then thousands out there have no spare parts or half built computers.

SO yeah i know not about a video game but think of it as amd leaving the pc space but this is ekwb that could be leaving water cooling in the pc space

As someone that has built a watercooling rig. EK is big, but there's so many numerous watercooling part companies out there. EK's stuff isn't exactly amazing quality for the price compared to others either, it's just ok. Much like Corsair. The impact would be negligible long term. For perspective the majority of my parts are XSPC, at most I use EK for my gpu waterblocks and fittings. Both easily replaceable.
