Acti’s holding Britain’s first Leicester Square game premiere in London tonight for Modern Warfare 2, and we’re here. We’re beyond excitement. Here’s the line: we’re standing on the other side of it.
The “official briefing” takes place at 7.00pm tonight, and we’ll liveblog it for you. Why not? It lasts for an hour. Famous people are expected. There may be a gun or two. There’s even a “secret gig” supported by “top DJs” after it.
We’re now updating after the link.

In a “world’s first” announcement, Acti said today that Modern Warfare 2 is to be launched at a Leicester Square event in London, “home of the ‘Hollywood Premiere’.”
The screening’s to be compered by a celeb fan.
The event will also be supported by an “epic” midnight opening at HMV’s Trocadero Store.
There’s also to be a “VIP launch party” in “a secret underground bunker,” headlined by one of the “UK’s biggest male artists of 2009.”
We’re practically shitting ourselves with excitement, now. Hit the link for the PR.

Update: Confirmed. Thanks, Blerk.
VG247′s learned that Yuji Naka is to appear at a Sega event in London today, so don’t be monumentally surprised if Let’s Tap’s announced for release in both the US and Europe this afternoon.

Rumour surfaced overnight suggesting the Wii oddity’s to see light of day in the US.
Let’s Tap is Naka’s first game as leader of new dev Prope. Hit this for more details.

Kikizo chap Adam Doree dropped us a line this morning to say he’s looking for a London games writer. Get all the details here. From the ad:
You will work from home, and have the necessary equipment to start work immediately (certain game systems and preview / review code will be provided by us), however, you will be expected to report in person to Kikizo’s HQ in Leicester Square, London, as often as necessary, and therefore you must be able to travel into Central London at short notice.
Go on, then. What are you waiting for?

MCV’s posted up details of this year’s Game Media Awards, to be held this year at the Jongleurs Comedy Club in Camden, London. The inaugural GMAs was held last year. From the site:
This time, the voting panel will be MCV’s entire readership. In other words, the UK video games industry. There will also be fewer awards in total – a move designed to ratchet up the prestige attached to each one.
The Games Media Awards are being backed by five Gold Sponsors: Microsoft, Nintendo, Activision, Codemasters and Electronic Arts. All recognise the importance of specialist, mainstream, print and digital media – and the value of rewarding the best in their particular field.
Categories are to be announced shortly, and voting will take place through August and September.

Atari’s holding the UK version of this week’s US Alone in the Dark event in London this afternoon, at the Everyman Cinema Club in Hampstead.
Phil Harrison’s going to be introducing the game, as he did in America, and we’ll be interviewing him after the presentation. There are loads of gamers here as opposed to press, so the Q&A should be fun.
Here’s the schedule:
- 1.30pm – Welcome note from Atari UK
- 1.35pm – Phil Harrison speech
- 1.45pm – Presentation of Alone in the Dark (The brand, the vision, the
game) by Nour Polloni (Producer)
- 3pm – Open forum – Questions and answers
We’re pretty sure the content of all this is going to be exactly the same as the event in San Francisco on Monday, but we’ll bring it to you live nonetheless. There are plugs (woot) and the connection looks fine, so hopefully nothing’ll go wrong. Famous last words, obviously.
Keep checking back for updates and photos.

Keep your eyes open this afternoon, PlayStation fans, as SCEE will hold its 2008 PlayStation Day press conference at 4pm: it’s gearing up to be a whopper.
In the absence of E3, companies are now trending towards showing their end-of-year line-ups to the trade in April and May at their own events, and from what we’ve been told in private you can expect today’s reveals to be significant.
- 15.30 – Venue open
- 16:00 – Press conference
- 17:30 – Play time with games
We can’t tell you where it’s going to be held, but it’s a huge London venue and the guest list is described as “substantial”. We know a good portion of what’s going to be shown and all we can say is that it will be worth your while to keep watching for updates.
Kaz Hirai and European boss David Reeves will both be giving talks at the event, and there’s a heap of rumours circulating about what’s going to be shown. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to work out that you’re about to hear pretty much everything about Sony’s 2008, so make sure you’re paying close attention at 4pm BST, when – God willing – we’ll be bringing you live updates from the venue.
It’ll probably just be Kaz talking about “brand equity”, a few PSPs and some warm beer, in reality. Don’t let us down, SCEE.
