The gaming showcase at the 2010 show will be 50 percent
bigger this year, according to organizers, taking up some 13,000 square feet. Microsoft
and Sony (natch) will be on hand, as will smaller companies DDR, Guillemot and
Iron Will Creations.
CES was actually the birthplace of E3, but don’t expect the
gaming trade show to move back into its parents house. Select game publishers will
have hotel suites to show off imminent games, but won’t announce any new titles
of note. At best, we might learn a few more details about Microsoft’s upcoming
Project Natal – but that would come during Steve Ballmer’s Jan. 6 keynote.
The 2010 CES will take place January 7-10 in Las Vegas.
