    I believe Gamespot are showing the press conference in full.

    I cannot wait for this as although I am not a Nintendo fan boy, I am VERY much looking forward to it and really hope they show Sony what a press conference about a next gen console should be about.

    Zelda, Mario tennis with a REAL motion sensing gamepad/thing. Bring it on.

    9 hours to go - woo hoo

    EDIT:

    Conference maybe starting at 17.30 - Check your preferred gaming news site for more info.

    Conference can be watched via:

    I'm looking forward to finding out the prices, the other consoles are too expensive for me so i'm hoping the wii is quite cheap.

    I thought the press conference was at either 4:30 or 5:30. :confused:

    It'll probably end up atound £150-£199. I hope they bundle in a game, that tennis game would be cool if it was built into the system and online playable. I'm dreading the cost of the controllers though. They aren't gonna be cheap.

    I take it nothings been announced yet regarding pricing or launch date, and this conference should be where all that happens?

    If its around £150 then I will definitely get one :)

    I'll be very tempted to pick one of these up, owned a N64 for quite a while and also the Gamecube before I sold it to get an Xbox.

    If it played the Gamecube games Id definitely go for one as there are a few games that were released after I sold the Gamecube that I really wanted.

    Doubt Ill buy one at launch, as the 360 will do me for the time being but probably as soon as they start doing decent priced bundles.

    Wonder what the actual graphics will be like. I know it doesn't have HDTV resolutions but will this mean a more photorealistic SDTV display?
