Activision trailered a True Crime reboot at the VGAs last night, as you can see after the break.
Canadian developer United Front‘s doing the work. It’s the same outfit behind ModNation Racers.
The new game’s set in China, featuring an undercover cop against the Triads. For those that may not remember, True Crime: Streets of L.A. was originally developed by Luxoflux, and released in 2003.
A sequel, True Crime: New York City, released in 2005, again by Luxoflux.
There’s no date on this. Get all the rest of the show news from Steph’s liveblog.

The first Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands trailer debuted at the VGAs last night – watch it after the break – showing what very much looks to be a vehicle tie-in for the upcoming Jake Gyllenhaal movie.
The Prince looks like Jake’s in-film character, most obviously. Rewinding’s still there as well, as you can see at the end of the trailer.
It’s out in May. Get all the rest of the show news from Steph’s liveblog.

EA dropped the first Medal of Honor at the VGAs last night as promised, and very bloody awesome it looks too.
The shooter reboot’s set in modern-day Afghanistan. There’s no denying the quality here.
It’s out for PC, 360 and PS3 at the end of next year. Get all the rest of the show news from Steph’s liveblog.

Hit the link for the first Halo: Reach trailer, which debuted last night at the Spike VGAs.
Looks as though Bungie’s gone for the “beefy” look this time round, armour-skulls and all.
Quite hard not to be excited about this, to be honest. Even if it does feel a little “Army of Two”.
It’s out next year. Get all the rest of the show news from Steph’s liveblog.

Here we go again with another liveblog kiddos. This time the 2009 Video Game Awards.
To keep you up to date we are liveblogging the whole thing as it happens on the television.
The schedule says that it should start around 8:00pm EST – that’s around 1:00am for the UK, and 2:00am for those elsewhere in Europe – should you decide to stay up with us.
So, throw on a pot of coffee and join us for up-to-the-minute liveblogging after the break.

Update: Guess what kiddos? We’ve decided to liveblog the event as it happens. Should you decide that you wish to stay up till around 1:00am (UK’ers) to check in with us, we will update you as the shit goes down! So, if Jack Black shows up in his undies shooting sparks from his groin again, or should Cliffy B decide to show and announce that Gears is being ported to Wii – we will let you know the second it happens. Not that it will, just sayin’.
Original: Spike TV will broadcast the 2009 Video Game Awards tonight at 8:00pm EST.
To get you pumped for it, you can watch a live stream of the rehearsals going on at the moment, which promised to give you a taste of some of the world premieres expected tonight.
Earlier, Geoff Keighley tweeted that during the “first five minutes” of the show, one of the “biggest surprise premieres in VGA history” will take place.
Oh, Geoff. You big tease. Stop it already. You’re making us blush.
Guess we’ll have to watch it now.

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.

This weekend’s VGAs will see a new clip from the Prince of Persia movie aired, according to the almighty Geoff Keighley’s super-Twitter.
Banny rabbit beefcake Jake Gyllenhaal himself will be on hand to intro the new footage.
The VGAs air on Saturday at 8pm EST.

Looks like Spike TV’s Video Games Awards will be aired on Channel 5 December 15 at 9:00pm.
Sources at Channel 5 told The Lost Gamer that it can also be viewed on Freeview: CH30 Sky: CH 176, and Fiver + 1 Sky: CH 177, Virgin Media: CH 152, Tiscali TV: CH 31.
Granted, it originally airs live on December 12 in the US so by the time the 15th rolls around you will already know the winners.
But at least you will be able to sit back and watch the festivities and possible trouser malfunctions on the telly with beer and chips like the US did three days prior.

Looks like Spike TV’s annual VGAs will be without a host for the first time this year.
According to a rep for the network, going without a host will be on par with what it did for this year’s Scream Awards.
However, the lack of a celebrity host doesn’t mean some will not take the stage. Presenters announced include:
- Jake Gyllenhaal
- Kristen Bell
- Felicia Day
- Tony Hawk
- Tricia Helfer
- Alyssa Milano
- Zachary Quinto
- Mike Tyson
- Olivia Wilde
- Snoop Dog (performing)
Hosts from years past consisted of Samuel L. Jackson, Jack Black and David Spade.

Yet more from Geoff Keighley’s Twitter account. The Spike presenter’s confirmed that UFC Undisputed 2010 will be aired for the first time at the VGAs this weekend.
Woo. We want to see sweat on their sweat this time. And some suggestive thrusting, obviously.
The VGAs take place this Saturday.

Halo Reach’s premiere at the VGAs next week will be a true, in-game showing of the title and looks set to debut 2010′s biggest game “by far,” if Spike’s Geoff Keighley’s comments on the latest Major Nelson podcast are to be believed.
“At the VGAs we’re actually going to be able to go down on the planet Reach and see this game for the first time,” said the presenter.
“It’s all going to be in-game stuff. This is not CG, this is not live action, like all the kids on Twitter are speculating. You’re going to get a first glimpse of the world of Reach, which is phenomenal.
He added: “I think it’s going to be the biggest game of next year by far. Folks loved ODST and thought it was great, but when people see the huge leap forward Bungie’s taking with Reach… Everyone I’ve talked to that’s been on the team and seen it is incredibly excited about that game.”
Hot shit. These quotes are pretty much the first thing Keighley says in his segment. Listen to the file at about 1.18.
The VGAs take place on December 12.

Update: GameTrailers has just tweeted that the teaser is for the movie. So there ya go.
Original: Geoff Keighley has just tweeted that one of the world premieres during the VGAs will be the TRON movie announcement.
At least we think its for the remake starring Jeff Bridges and Olivia Wilde. It could be a game for all we know.
There’s a video of it through the break. It’s not much.
Still, you know you are pissing yourself over this, seriously. Don’t deny it.
VGAs happen December 12 on Spike.

The cats out of the bag, sort of, in relation to the new 2K shooter scheduled to debut at the VGAs.
Apparently, it’s a new Special- Ops title, and the video has been available for viewing since August over on Adland.tv.
1UP says that the “sneak peek” is part of a longer version of the CGI video, which we have posted below the break.
If you don’t like Bjork, you may wanna turn your speakers down while watching.
More through IGN.

There’s a teaser video up on Kotaku showing a shooter that 2K has in the works.
What it has to do with Dubai, we have no clue.
Guess we’ll find out during the VGAs on Spike December 12 at 8:00pm EST.

SCEA has announced that it has seen a 70 percent growth in sales for PS3 when compared to October 2008, making it “the only console to experience significant growth year over year”.
According to a statement from Sony, October also marked the “highest month of revenue on record for the PlayStation Store, with downloads increasing 60 percent over October 2008.” To date, more than 650 million bits of content have been downloaded worldwide and there are more than 31 million registered users for PSN.
“Many believe a console race is a 100-meter dash, but it’s really a marathon. The PS3′s ten-year lifecycle is clear testament of Sony’s commitment to providing entertainment value to consumers,” said EEDAR’s Jesse Divnich. “PS3’s growth in recent months is a perfect example of how a new low price along with upcoming innovative, exclusive titles such as MAG, Gran Turismo 5 and God of War III, will act as large catalysts for driving the PS3′s install base even higher.
“Add in the robust offerings on the PlayStation Network and there’s no doubt that PS3′s success will continue well throughout 2010, and beyond.”
Sony received 17 nominations for the 2009 Spike Videogame Awards today which according to the company is “more than any other first or third party publisher”.
