No Microsoft conference at Leipzig

Sony the only speaker for second year.

Microsoft has, once again, decided against delivering a press conference at the Leipzig Games Convention.

Instead, the platform holder will demonstrate the Xbox 360 catalogue in an intimate mixture of public and behind closed-door demonstrations, according to videogaming247.

Nintendo opted out of GC press conference duties back in May, leaving Sony as the sole speaker for the second year running.

Microsoft was unavailable to comment the reason for the decision, but being situated so close to E3 in July is an obvious problem.

We'll be bringing you live coverage of the Sony Games Convention press conference next week, which looks poised to bring us the first news on Heavy Rain, the PS3 exclusive from Quantic Dream, the makers of Fahrenheit and Omikron: The Nomad Soul.
