Sony's GamesCom press conference is tomorrow, and we're all expecting a few big bombs; i.e., a price drop, the official announcement of the PS3 Slim, possible PS2 backwards compatibility for the PS3, etc. But don't forget; they're bringin' some awesome software to the party, too.

It probably won't surprise you to learn that hot exclusive titles like God of War III , Heavy Rain , Uncharted 2: Among Thieves , MAG , Gran Turismo PSP and ModNation Racers will be in attendance, but there may be one new exclusive that Sony has in store… An eagle-eyed NeoGAF forum member found something interesting at the European branch of Eurogamer : as you can see, there are software listings for the major publishers, and you'll recognize all the names under Sony's name…except for one. It's a game called Dead Nations and although we're searching our memory banks, we can't remember any such title. Is it a new PlayStation 3 or PSP exclusive? Is it a multiplatform game that somehow escaped attention? Who's making it? Might it be another exclusive for the PSN? We have a lot of questions, of course, but we assume none will be answered until tomorrow. You guys can speculate all you want but with only a name, it's tough to come up with any significant leads.

Well, anyway, it's just something else we'll have to keep a close eye on in the coming hours. Tuesday could be a very, very big day for the PlayStation brand.

Wow it's tomorrow. I can't wait to see what happens. I haven't heard of Dead Nations either. Looks like it really will turn out to be a huge show for Sony.

I'm guessing this isn't the secret game that PSXE is quiet about. In any event, the mystery behind this game adds fuel to why we all want to be there for the sony conference.

*from what I've seen surfing the web, some people think it's Sony's answer to 'Left for Dead,' or another great PSN title. Hopefully more of the former

i hope to read about some good news tomorrow from PSX… and the good news i want to hear about is backwards compatibility… finally this day had arrived and we can quit speculating and guessing… it's time for the truth to reveal itself…

dead nation, huh? another zombie game? FPS war game featuring the rise and fall of a nation? RTS game of war? espionage? can't really figure that one out… don't really care to speculate really… we'll know tomorrow if it is actually even called dead nation…

If the ps3 gets a 100$ price cut, it'll be 50$ more than the ps3. I think that will make the psp go sales drop too.

Just "googled" Dead Nations and all I got was a classic RPG site with some screens. It is definitely Zombie/Vampire/Undead creatures there.

All i could find really.
Not a game I have seen or heard of before though. Take a look yourself.

I hope it is like left 4 dead. Cuz let's be honest, l4d isn't a bad game. And if valve wasn't so biased they would be able to have my 60$. Well whatever it is, a new game is NEVER a bad thing.

Left 4 dead looked horrible when me and a buddy played it on his 360. Splitscreen really killed it for me.

Jak 4 is already announced. Like the first 3, it's for PS2 (plus, in this case, PSP).

Greg Miller also mentioned an unannounced game that will be revealed at GC.

id love to see a zombie game like resident evil but for the love of god let us MOVE and shoot.
and have extreme details like skin layers and such, thats what i would love to see incorporated into shooters these days, well all games.
like you use a shotgun to shoot some one in the stomach, and you can see all the damage it did, tore flesh guts sticking out stuff like that.
sort of like what GOW3 is doing with the zipper technique but on a grander scale.
