    All right, fellow Europeans! Time to stay up and watch this live and forget about school, kiddies (J/K!) [​IMG]

    But seriously... I think someone will have a video up on Youtube later or somewhere.

    All I get is a coming soon screen... I assume that's just because the event hasn't started yet.

    Hopefully we won't be losing sleep over another Joystiq-styled hypefest.

    J/k, Joystiq is still awesome, even if they did fire that one dude for hype.

    Forget the feed. It's an old pre-recorded conference. Wrong link.
