Sony PlayStation 3

By far the most anticipated press conference of GamesCom is Sony's. The company has been terrible at plugging leaks regarding the upcoming PlaySation 3 Slim, but it's been expected Sony would be announcing much more, too. At the start of their press conference, Sony revealed big updates coming to both PlayStation Network and Home.

PSN is getting a visual overhaul on September 1st. The company so far generated $280 million in revenue from the online service. To support that, in Europe (this is an overseas press conference, after all) PSN will soon see the addition of the BBC iPlayer and other a downloadable video store, which the US already has.

UK retailers will also soon be receiving PSN voucher cards, sidestepping the need for a credit card. (Wait, those weren't already available? Jeez!)

In Home, it's more business as usual. Sony promised both SingStar and Audi-themed spaces are on the way, including the much anticipated addition of new dance moves. Oh, yes, new dance moves. You'll also have the ability to lug around the camera and capture your Home experience.

Stay tuned for more from GamesCom!
