"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.
Yep you guys can watch the show worldwide at vga.spike.com. Works on the web, on your phone, on your iPad etc. No geoblocking. The preshow gets underway at 5 PM PT / 8 PM ET.
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.

Good Q, there are a bunch of factors at play here. There are some surprises we aren't teasing at all this year for a variety of reasons. Next week we will drop some new footage on a few of the world premieres to give you a taste of what's to come on Friday night.

Can add Bioshock and Tomb Raider to the list. Gears will show off the main enemy that hasn't been seen before. South Park gameplay will be shown.
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?)

@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.
