EA's booth, which will be located in Hall 6, will include a Command & Conquer section, where fans attending will likely be able to see a gameplay demo and/or play the game, alongside some other surprises, as is seemingly hinted at by the presence of a massive tank at the C&C kiosk's entrance.

I wish EA will have a worldwide contest for winning a PC with the new C&C and VG logos printed on it, because that would be great.


As for those prices Alex06, are they in dollars or in euros?
