It was a truly fun time, and the reaction of the crowd when UNCHARTED 2 claimed Game of the Year/Best PS3 Game/Best Graphics was made all the sweeter by the fact that several Naughty Dogs were there to watch along with us.

Along the way we raffled off multiple copies of our biggest games of the year (Killzone 2, inFAMOUS, Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time, UNCHARTED 2 and more), a couple of super-rare James Grayson-inspired Resistance:...

227w ago - Update: Despite a "Gem" of a slip-up reported on GameInformer.com by Disney president Steve Wadsworth during a keynote address, according to Kotaku, the term "Gem" was "an early code name for the product," per Sony Computer Entertainment of America director of communications Patrick Seybold.
