Welcome to TRMK
's fifth year of E3
coverage as we are reporting live from Los Angeles
. We are extremely anxious and ready for E3 to start tomorrow morning at 10:00am PDT
. In continuance of a 5 year tradition, we're filing a pre-show update for everyone.
Earlier this evening you may have noticed that we posted a few shots of the Midway
booth setup from this year's E3
posted up at our . This year Midway will have four PS2 and four Xbox machines setup running Shaolin Monks
like last year with Deception
. We also got word of a rumor that the PS2
version of MK:SM
on the floor will have the violence removed. Aparently the order was handed down from Sony
to display the game without violence, but the Xbox
demo's violence remains intact. This bit of information sounds suspect; however, we'll find out for sure later today.
There also does not appear to have any playable stations setup for the recently announced Mortal Kombat PSP
games. The only thing in Midway's
booth was a single video screen with rolling demos of Midway Arcade Treasures PSP
and Mortal Kombat: Deception PSP
so we only expect to see the games in the form of video clips. We'll have more tomorrow once get a better look around when the show's doors open.
