    I wonder if Konami will announce the new MGS thing at the VGAs? It’s got everything else. Although the MGS teaser was on Konami Japan’s site, not a US one, so they might hold back until the next big event in Japan, whenever that is.

    Damn, quite a few people are gonna be glued to the screen when that show goes down.

    Anyone know if it can be seen live online? Or are we Spike-less people doomed to read live blogs in stead? :(

    Peopel ahve been so down on it, I think it can only excel becuase of it.

    If there’s a new car, I am jealous I can’t get it instantly.

    But… Ucnharted 2 and God of War III make up for that. Certainly Uncharted 2.
