Excuse the delay - my battery died and now I'm plugged - what you missed: Gran Turismo will be H and 3D, coming November 2010. Also, Infamous 2 - which looked amazing and got a lot of "oohs" and "ahs" for cool freezing powers - coming 2011. The final surprise (you only missed about 10 minutes) was Twisted Metal. They had a teaser with live actors that was a little silly but then the clown pikcup us a cigar and lit his head. Looks like multiplayer teams or squads with NPC allies (yes, a clan of clowns). Multitiered levels with giant robots that you need to complete a lot of criteria to complete (capture opponent leader, bring them to a zone, hold them in that zone, activate a missile launcher, launch the missile, guide the missile and avoid opponents to hit the robot. Three times. They ended the conference with the clown car/van driving across the stage. Poor dude sat ther ein makeup until the end and the lights went down 9then he slowly snuck offstage). The big themes were content, Move, content, family games, Move and content. Thanks for joining us for the live blog. Look for photos of the event soon.
