It’s going to be damn hard to top last year’s Video Game Awards. In 2008, Jack Black hosted, and a slew of artists performed at the show, including The All American Rejects and Weezer, so it doesn’t seem like it could get any better, but wait, it just did.
Geoff Keighley of Spike TV, the channel hosting the event, Tweeted, just minutes ago this juicy little detail about the 2009 show.
The world premiere of HALO: REACH happens only at the 2009 Video Game Awards, Live 12/12 on Spike.
There you have it. We’ll likely see some sort of trailer for Bungie’s “last” Halo game at this year’s awards show, and wouldn’t it be nice if the video wrapped up with “multiplayer beta begins tonight!” I mean, we were promised access to the Reach multiplayer beta with our ODST purchase in September, so it’d be nice to see that promise come to fruition.
