Massively was at Gen Con 2009
yesterday in Indianapolis, Indiana, and while most of the (gigantic) convention was involved with more traditional types of gaming, from dice and board games to collectible card games and RPGs, MMOs made their own splash in the "e-gaming" area. Sony Online Entertainment
probably had the biggest presence -- in among huge posters of Free Realms
and Star Wars Galaxies
, they had demos running of all of their current games (though we didn't see any previews of DCUO
or The Agency
running). A costumed model posed for pictures in front of a large Legends of Norrath
poster, while over in the CCG area, SOE held tournaments of the game for players.
