An attempt at a good, old fashioned E3 surprise? Hells yes, baby! Sign us up!
Not sure if you missed the press conference but if you did, you can check out the surprise announce right here.
We know this is going to be the best Twisted Metal ever released. 16 players online, 2-4 player split screen, amazing new game modes, helicopters, motorcycles, sports cars, all battling it out in highly interactive levels with all the skill, speed, and strategy you could ask for!

186w ago - The rumored new premium online subscription service, which will cost around £50 per year, is slated to be unveiled by Sony at E3 2010 according to VG247.com (linked above).
This news comes as no big surprise as Sony sent out a survey via IPSOS Online Research on the new service several months back to users.
To quote: "According to a highly-placed source, Sony will announce a large-scale monetizing scheme for PSN at the LA show, but we're assured nothing planned will impact the service's current free aspects.
A string of features will be revealed, apparently costing "less than £50 per year".
Sony will confirm plans to give all subscribers one free PSN game per month, from a choice of "two to four" every month.
"If you work it out, PSN games cost an average of £6-9 each, so over a year you're basically going to be breaking even," said our source.
A streaming music application similar to Spotify will be announced in Sony's press conference on June 15. It's thought that this can run in the background while playing games.
