The PlayStation Recap

42 5

All eyes on the Spike TV Video Game Awards (VGAs), which begin today at 5pm Pacific Time. Expect first in-game footage of UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception and Resistance 3 to make an appearance — I have a suspicion you won’t want to miss it. After the VGAs, swing back here to the PlayStation.Blog to learn even more and discuss tonight’s gaming news.

Meanwhile, the Capcom Unity and PlayStation.Blog VGAs viewing party is in full swing at the Kim Sing Theatre in Los Angeles. At this very moment, PlayStation and Capcom fans are enjoying hands-on play with Marvel vs Capcom 3, as well as succulent foods delivered by local food trucks. Wish I could be there! But the show must go on.
