has some more information.
Obviously the tension is building to a fever pitch as gamers eagerly sit back and wait for more details of when StarCraft 2 and Diablo 3 are going to hit the streets - I guess if we haven't heard by October we can hope for some big announcements then! We're hoping to have someone on the scene there again this year, so stay tuned!
