    On that second link above, a moment ago there was a verbal announcement that they'll be starting in a few minutes. The official EA webcam is still looking at their booth....

    It's started. They're talking about Army of Two.

    Is it ironic that EA says more about games that won't be out until next year than it says about UO's anniversary next month?

    So far they've showed Army of Two, NHL 13, Need for Speed, Battlefield 3, Medal of Honor, The Simpsons Tapped Out app, Origin is coming for the Mac, SimCity (!!), and Crysis 3.

    Now talking about upcoming changes to Star Wars.

    Dead Space 3. FIFA 3 Online. FIFA 13.

    I can't see them showing anything for UO here. Ultima Forever, maybe. But UO....no, unless there's some huge and dramatic upgrade coming that puts it on par graphically with the other games they've shown.

    It's done. No mention of UO or Ultima Forever. There's apparently going to be some press-only briefings on some of their other games, e.g., The Secret World, but I don't see anything regarding UFE. Guess we have to watch Jeff's Twitter feed for that.

    EA-sponsored live chats lined up for the next couple of days (Wednesday-Saturday) in connection with Gamescom. Schedule here: 2012 Live Chat Lineup | EA @ GC 2012 . Not a thing for UFE or UO, of course.
