Microsoft Play Day - Tuesday, August 16th: 12:30 CET / 11:30 BST

We managed to get to grips with a number of titles at the Play Day, icnluding a spot of multiplayer with Halo CE: Anniversary Edition, sucking unbelievably at Forza 4, almost knocking Martina Hingis off of her feet just outside Kinect Sports Season 2 and finally getting hands-on with Star Wars Kinect. Although there weren't too many announcements as such - there was no actual press conference - we will have previews for you of a few titles (including impressive XBLA gems Orcs Must Die and Crimson Alliance) shortly. Felix and Jon will be hitting up a few key appointments with MS on Wednesday so watch this space.

EA Press Conference - Tuesday, August 16th: 16:00 CET / 15:00 BST

The EA presser didn't reveal much that was new or surprising, but it did show off an impressive upcoming catalogue for the super-publisher with new trailers for ten big hitters and a bunch of release date information. You can catch up with our write-ups for those here, and also check in with our live Twitter comments from the event itself here. Thursday is our day for getting to grips with the best EA has to offer.

Sony Press Conference - Tuesday, August 16th: 19:00 CET /18:00 BST

A venue change and a shift in direction for Sony, this event was always going to be about one thing and one thing only: the Playstation Vita. Although Brendan and Carl will be looking at Sony's wares more fully on Wednesday and Thursday, expect a few previews from Felix over the next 24 hours, and you can find write-ups and a roundup from the presser here.
