"For hard-core gamers this is the first place you will ever see those new games," says the show's executive producer Mark Burnett. "Imagine if the Academy Awards was on and they announced five movies that no one has ever heard of. That is the equivalent. You will be on a rip-roaring, two-hour ride of television."

Spike TV and Microsoft will also broadcast the Video Game Awards on Xbox LIVE in multiple countries. The show will also be streamed internationally on Spike.com and GameTrailers.com.

It's an incredible show and I'm very proud of the strides we are making this year. I hope you'll give things a fair shake. I know hating on the VGAs is a sport for most of the core audience, but we have some really amazing moments planned this year with some new games and some very special guests.

Enjoy the show.

Talks about the Xbox live stream, which will be smartglass enabled. Sam Jackson will be able to talk directly to Xbox Live community, Xbox live voting will impact the show.(even more teabagging this year?)

Talks about some of the game footage from the big games coming out next spring, then says there will be games shown that are coming "far beyond summer of 2013"

Gonna be a video package where Sam Jackson is inserted into a bunch of different games. All the former hosts will be back to celebrate 10 year anniversary.(Jack Black, Zach Levi, Snoop, Neil Patrick Harris)

Will be available on demand for 48 hours on Xbox Live after show ends. Pre show will start 1 hour before.

Erik Griggs ‏@ErikGriggs
@geoffkeighley Anything as earth shattering as last years reveal of The Last of Us or 2010's reveal of Mass Effect 3?

@ErikGriggs We think so, yes.

Late night world premiere screening with our VGA team in LA. One surprise piece had everyone raving, can't wait to show you in 7 days.

I thought it would have been better if the Naughty Dog logo came at the end of the trailer rather than the beginning. Still awesome.

I'm curious to see if Nintendo will indeed have a presence there this year...This certainly seems like the year for them to do it, and all this talk of Yoshi's Land...just might happen.

Also very interested in seeing more of Destiny, even if its something that I probably won't play, I can't help but be curious.

Edit: And I can't wait to see TLOU again.

And I wonder if they'll top The Last Of Us this year - that was a fantastic reveal last year. I mean the only thing that could come close for me is the Bungie game or a first glimpse at the project that Respawn is working on.

If they could match that surprise this year, I'd be very impressed.

Rising by Platinum was a megaton too. VGAs 2011>>>>>>>>>E3 2012

New 1313 and/or Watch Dogs footage would be nice, too.

Really looking forward to seeing Castlevania, and I already know The Last of Us will be great so I doubt there will be any surprises for me from Naughty Dog. Can't say I care too much about Gears, I enjoy the series but I don't know, I'm finding myself not really caring about Judgement for some reason.

Hopefully some great new stuff, a tease of Next Gen would also be fantastic.

Out of curiosity, was there a conscious decision to be more quiet about the reveals this year?

Generally I remember a ~1 month campaign advertising the reveals for the show, but now we're one week away and it feels like we have a lot less teasing.

I can't quite tell if you intend to pack it all in the last week, intend to tease less, or if there are just less reveals to tease.

I get the feeling a Destiny tease will be present. These recent leaks seem a bit too well timed, and Bungie's starting to get the ARG machine rolling... Ending VGAs with Bungie would be a show-stopper to say the least.

Thanks. Well, at least it should be more surprising this year.

Combining Geoff's comments with this, I'll say that anything that's next-gen (or heavily focused toward next-gen) isn't getting teased at all, while the current gen games will get teased, and that there are less teasers for them since the last current gen games are all coming out pretty soon.

I also expect that Game Informer might have an article on Bungie's game, given that it comes out the night before the VGAs if they're sticking with first Thursday of this month.

I think the most interesting aspect about the reveals is that it implies very few studios aren't (at minimum) going cross generation, since otherwise this would be a great chance to show your current gen game for Fall 2013/Spring 2014 while it can still look good visually.

Yeah. This is my first time observing a generational leap as an adult and with any knowledge of the industry and the technology, and it's interesting to watch this time-wall of mid-2013 where few to no games officially exist beyond it.

Don't we already pretty much know that at least Battlefield 4, the next AC and MGS: Ground Zeroes will be cross gen? I would also bet that yearly franchises like CoD (2 was a launch 360 after all) and NFS will also be available on both generations.

I think you can lock in almost anything from EA, Activision, and Ubisoft as cross-gen.

The only real awards are given out to people who make games by people who make games. An arbitrary group of journalists whose legitimacy ranges from zero to meh holds no bearing.

Bring on the reveals Geoff. That is how I derive pleasure.
