It's only Tuesday, and there have already been tons of amazing announcements out of this week's annual Electronic Entertainment Expo. It's hard to sift through the deluge of information being presented, but there are a few hidden gems that might be relevant to our cause. There hasn't been a lot of news on Wing Commander Privateer's addition to the GameTap service since it was revealed a few months ago, although the site's actual website front page now features a screenshot of Privateer in action. On the bright side, the company has just announced that they will be co-publishing a new game in the Sam & Max series. This is partly because of the feedback from the series' dedicated online community and fan base. The new game will be released in an episodic format over the service later this year. GameTap will be uniquely positioned to gauge the popularity of the WC series when they finally add P1 to their lineup, and hopefully we'll show them just how popular Wing Commander really is.Sony has confirmed that the Playstation 3 will play original Playstation games such as Wing Commander 3 & 4, and EA has announced they will have a number of hit franchises ready to support the Nintendo Wii launch this fall. There's been no word on a Wing Commander yet.
