SEGA's line-up

X360 stuff, Virtua Tennis PSP.

CAPSLOCK of America has joined the back of the line of people trooping into our little content system with a list of games scrawled on a piece of paper. [SEGA -slightly worried Ed] plans to show off two next-gen titles - Condemned (Monolith's gritty game about hunting down serial killers) and Full Auto (its "Burnout with POP's rewind function" racer) - and both will be playable at the show.

On the current generation of hardware, [SEGA's] planning to show off its slightly worrying "Sonic with guns" affair Shadow The Hedgehog, its slightly awesome sounding Total War spin-off Spartan: Total Warrior from recent purchase Creative Assembly, along with the likes of Shining Force Neo and Phantasy Star Universe.

[For goodness sake, it's SEGA]'s biggest handheld prospect (unless Gunstar Super Heroes turns you on as much as it does our Pat) is Virtua Tennis: World Tour, which along with the worryingly fun-sounding Full Auto ought to make [sigh, SEGA]'s stand one of our first ports of call this week. Expect impressions of both of those, and lots of other stuff, in the coming days.
