Activision showed off six of its upcoming titles, with the help of some celebrity guests, at its E3 conference.

Activision, Midway, and Konami showed off their upcoming titles to E3 attendees in a series of afternoon press conferences.

âWe are pleased with Sonyâs recent PS3 price cuts, which will provide additional opportunities to increase sales on that platform,â said Activision's Robin Kaminsky. She noted that the company holds a leadership position on all three current generation consoles.

With Stan Lee, Tony Hawk, Slash, and Jamie Kennedy in attendance, Activision showed video footage of the upcoming titles Tony Hawkâs Proving Ground, Bee Movie Game, Enemy Territory: Quake Wars, Spider-Man: Friend or Foe, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, and Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock.

At Midwayâs conference, the focus was on John Wooâs Stranglehold. A downloadable demo will be released next month for the 360, PS3, and PC, with the final game coming in August. The PS3 version will have Wooâs Hardboiled film together with the game on one Blu-Ray disk.

Midway also announced a November release date for Unreal Tournament 3 on PS3 and PC, as well as a September release for BlackSite: Area 51. A new demo of BlackSite will be available for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC in August.
