And the lists just keep on coming. This time its Sega, whose line-up consists of a lot of previously announced titles (including recent unveilings Sega SuperStars and OutRun 2) and a couple we were aware of but probably haven't written anything about yet (Otogi 2 and Sonic Mega Collection Plus - the latter being a collection of Sonic titles much like the Cube Mega Collection). There's also a PC port of Sonic Heroes, and some external projects like Sports Interactive pairing Football Manager 2005 and Eastside Hockey Manager, Warhammer Online and Team 17's Worms Forts Under Siege.
Apart from the official line-up, there's also the question of "SegaTon", as it's been termed, the "explosive" announcement promised by Sega of America during one of its little press conferences. Sega of America claims nobody will be able to guess what it is (which you'd think would rule out all the obvious guestimates like a return to hardware, Shenmue III, etc, but not so judging by some of the stuff we've read), and we understand from various sources and reports that rumoured items like a home version of Atomiswave are pretty wide of the mark.
We'll let you know as soon as we do, and look forward to in-depth coverage of some of Sega's key E3 titles over the coming week.
