A few months ago one of my workmates was lucky enough to attend a product information night where several manufacturers got together and showed off their latest gear. In terms of games you had both Sony and Nintendo attending with Nintendo having the largest presence(as Sony wanted to focus on some of their other products).
My mate got to play a bunch of games before release including Brain Age for the Wii and Zelda Phantom Hourglass. Exciting stuff eh? Unfortunately only one staff member could attend and well I am the youngest and least available member in the department.
I’ve checked with my boss and in future I might be able to attend. Which means that I get to give some pre-release opinions. Of course being Australian the games would have probably been released a few months before hand so its probably not much of a big deal.
