Sony: Leipzig “Blockbuster” Promised

Sony Computer Entertainment Europe president David Reeves stated today that global announcements and ‘blockbuster’ revelations will be coming out of the Games Convention ’08 Leipzig event.

“It’s not just Euro-centric – there will be some global announcements,” said Reeves. “The announcements we make will be more important for the local markets that come to Leipzig.

“And it’s not just Leipzig, it’s Game Convention – if we had one in London we’d do it in London. We have a number of things which is real blockbuster stuff for Europe.”

Reeves also said that the three events are their key to announcing new titles and they cannot do it all in July.

“We feel now that we have a pattern globally which is E3, Tokyo Games Show and Leipzig – it gives us three bites of the cherry to come out with our announcements. We cannot tailor all our announcements to July.”
