[Update] We are live, folks.
The Games Media Awards takes place tonight in London’s Camden, and VG247′s up for three of them. God willing, we may actually win something this time.
We’re in the running for Best Games Website, Specialist Writer (Web) and Games Blog.
The ceremony starts at 8.00pm BST tonight, and we’ll be liveblogging it after the break.

Last night’s 60 Minutes – a profile on Olympic mega-swimmer Michael Phelps – apparently mentioned that a game based on the aquatic legend’s in the works.
No other details were given.
Michael Phelps is the Tiger Woods of the swimming world: he’s a fucking winner. So if there’s a game with his name on it, we’re buying. End of.

Everyone’s favourite analyst, Michael Pachter, said that as around 90 percent of last-gen hardware sales were inspired by a price point of $199 or below, we won’t see full 360/PS3 mass market penetration until around 2010. From the man himself:
“As consoles come down in price, the manufacturers will sell more of them, and the market will continue to expand. Around 90% of last-generation console sales were made at the $199 price point or below.”
“Only wealthy or hardcore gamers have purchased consoles so far, given that the PS3 is still $399, the 360 is still $349, and the Wii is still $249. When prices drop below $200 (probably in 2010), the mass market [for 360 and PS3] will emerge,” he said.
We hang on your every word Michael.
