Geoff Keighley talks VGAs, loads of surprises to come

Geoff Keighley has told D’toid that there will be “more than 12″ exclusives, including the announced Crackdown 2, a new Star Wars title, and at least two games he can’t even comment on during the VGAs tomorrow night.

He also mentioned that during the commercial breaks, the show will come back with new stage set ups, thanks to digital environments.

“We definitely have some pretty major surprises still to come,” he said. “Essentially, the biggest thing in the show hasn’t even been announced yet.

“We’re going to keep some of the environments secret [for now] but you’ll definitely get to see that we’ll be transforming a lot of worlds, even some games worlds, as well. We’re working with some game publishers to actually create some of the very cool content.

“You know, I think we do a pretty good job that will get the hardcore excited, but we also have to look at the broader more mainstream audience. Because if I booked ten Japanese RPGs on the show, that might be great for some of the real hardcore guys, but that’s not what’s going to appeal to the mainstream crowd.”

Keighley also revealed that Dead Space 2, Natal, and Sony’s motion controller will not be included in the show.

    “Essentially, the biggest thing in the show hasn’t even been announced yet”

    So we’re going to be underwhelmed then.

    there’s some weird shit going on with the anti-aliasing in that logo.

    as in, there’s none. Richard Leadbetter would have a bone to pick with Spike.

    Translation: Some of our super-exciting announcements will be for the waggle machine and may involve dogs and/or fairies.

    I’m not gonna lie.. I will probably watch it just to see the announcements. But UFC 107 is saturday too.. Not exactly great planning by Spike unless this show is pretty early?

    So Geoff has the say on which trailers are shown at the awards and which aren’t.

    And he turns down Dead Space 2.

    How much of a moron is he?

    Turned it down in favour of some unremarkable sports game I’ll wager. Really, the only reason why people should pay him any attention is to watch him embarrass himself making big claims that turn out to be utter jokes. Like the ‘monumental’ announcement of DLC for Gears 2 lol.

    I managed to watch it on Justin tv last last year.

    You’ll most likely find a feed there. Dont go for the official Spike feeds.

    They’re shit.

    I seem to think last year I downloaded it from GameTrailers the day after, or something.
