Video games at CES

Videogames never have a huge presence at CES, since the main events for that industry at E3 and the Game Developers Conference. But there will be a few big players from the game space speaking and/or showing off cool stuff. Here’s what to expect

-Microsoft,
as always, will have a big presence and give the keynote address. I
expect they’ll be touting the latest stats that over 28 million Xbox
360s have been sold, giving it a comfortable lead over Playstation 3
(never mind that pesky Wii), touting the success of Netflix streaming
on the box, showing more content from “Halo Wars” and “Halo 3: ODST”
and maybe a few new things. In addition to covering the keynote and
checking out the products, I’ll be talking one-on-one with Microsoft’s
entertainment and Sf4devices president Robbie Bach, who usually has good insights on his own company and the market.

-Capcom
will be in town showing off “Street Fighter IV” and “Resident Evil 5,”
complete with a “SF IV” match-up between players picked by Microsoft
and Sony (details here). If I get any hands-on time, hopefully I won’t be quite as humiliated at “Street Fighter IV” as I was at E3.

-Sony Computer Entertainment. Though the Playstation 3 and PSP — and their games — got virtually no mention at the ocmpany’s press conference Wednesday afternoon, they’re sure to ge ta spot in CEO Howard Stringer’s keynote Thursday morning.

-Sony Online Entertainment will be at CES with “DC Universe Online” and “Free Realms.”

-Activision Blizzard publishing president Michael Griffith is giving a speech on Friday. Perhaps not coincidentally, the website for Activision game “Prototype” is counting down to tomorrow, indicating he’ll be bringing a new trailer or something with him for the game.
