1:29 Comment From bill i thought it was to be exclusive to 360 and PC untill now!

1:31 Chris Holt: FF14. Online. It's still an online title. Darnit.

1:31 Matt Peckham: We're watching a demo for Assassin's Creed Brotherhood now. You know, the intermediary between-AC2-and-AC3 game.

1:33 Matt Peckham: And it looks like another Assassin's Creed game. Love 'em, but nothing special to say about the demo in terms of special abilities, locales, or story content.

1:33 Comment From Matthew @Chris Holt: Okay, bummer it's only online, but cheer up, it can't be worse than FFXI

1:33 Comment From Spencer If if EA is done does that mean no news on Crysis 2?

1:33 Matt Peckham: That's right Spencer. They name-checked Crysis 2, but that was all we saw or heard of it. (Alas.)

1:34 Matt Peckham: And over to another montage. Man, the montages in Sony's show are endless. I can't keep track of all the stuff we're looking at.

1:35 Chris Holt: How does AC Brotherhood's multiplayer work? Do you tackle NPCs or sneak up on each other?

1:38 Matt Peckham: Uh-oh, I just dropped my 3D glasses, and I'm in no position to pick the up. Gran Turismo 5 in 3D...

1:38 Matt Peckham: Gran Turismo 5, the game in the running to beat Duke Nukem Forever for vaporware. Okay, that's overly cruel, but come on Sony. We want this BEFORE the PS4.

1:39 Matt Peckham: That said, it looks magnificent in the video they're showing. Assuming this is all in-game, move over Forza.

1:39 Matt Peckham: Well hello release date! November 2, 2010!

1:40 Matt Peckham: It'll be fully playable in 3D as well as non-3D, with both versions mastered to the same Blu-ray disc. Impressive.

1:40 Matt Peckham: And from GT5 over to InFAMOUS 2. I've got the case-sensivity in the title right, right?

1:40 Comment From Matthew Crowd response to GT5 release?

1:41 Matt Peckham: Crowd response = howls of enthusiasm. Some on their feet.

1:42 Matt Peckham: The crowd's pretty excited about InFAMOUS 2. Middling to strong applause for that one.

1:42 Matt Peckham: "We have ONE LAST SURPRISE FOR YOU."

1:42 Matt Peckham: Roll the surprise video...

1:42 Matt Peckham: What could it be...

1:43 Comment From Matthew By the way: have inFAMOUS sitting next to me....you were close :)

1:44 Matt Peckham: A bunch of clowns with flaming heads.... And Sony's driving a car out on stage...

1:44 Matt Peckham: Twisted Metal, coming exclusively to PS3, 2011.

1:46 Matt Peckham: And now we're seeing gameplay... A helicopter, a guy on a bike, someone with a mounted gun (chopper?), vans, more helicopters, each vehicle with two special attacks, team-based gameplay, ability to carry teammates into or out of battle zone.

1:46 Chris Holt: Twisted Metal is that series of games that was always popular and I never understood why.

1:47 Chris Holt: Races and deathmatches never really worked for me.

1:47 Comment From Dominic So...no mention of price break on the PS3 huh?

1:47 Matt Peckham: No mention of a price break on the PS3 or a new budget model.

1:47 Chris Holt: The graphics really aren't impressing here.

1:48 Matt Peckham: Then again, Twisted Metal was never about looking outrageously beautiful, it was always about the competitive modes and (darkly) humorous attack types.

1:49 Matt Peckham: We're getting a blow-by-blow of the multiplayer modes. One involves grabbing hostages and dragging them around behind your car. Yep, that's twisted.

1:49 Matt Peckham: By "them," I'm talking live bodies!

1:50 Matt Peckham: You can sacrifice leaders to missile launchers? This is getting weird. And strangely spiritual.

1:50 Matt Peckham: Middling audience response to Twisted Metal for PS3.

1:51 Matt Peckham: Jack Tretton's back on stage. So that's it? Anything more for us Jack?

1:51 Matt Peckham: Yep, it sounds like that's it. Jack just signed off.

1:52 Matt Peckham: That's it folks. We're out of here! Watch for our slideshow and news updates to follow shortly.
