"1UP: Why didn't you show Grand Theft Auto IV at your press conference? Why was it not there?

Tretton: Well, Dave [Karraker, Senior Director of Corporate Communications at Sony Computer Entertainment America], do you want to answer that? Dave was in control of the content.

Karraker: You want the real answer?

1UP: Can you give me both answers?

Tretton: [laughs]

Karraker: I'll give you the real answer. They didn't send us their video.

1UP: So it's not anything like "well, the game's been shown on Xbox 360..."

Karraker: We requested it. We sent an e--mail out to every publisher and said send us your videos that you want put in the press conference, and they never sent it. Not much more you can say about that."

That does not sound too good..Anyone know what this means ?

Maybe not running as well? There's many possible reasons, but with GTA, a huge seller on PS2, it does seem a little strange.

Can you guys say if you're going after any exclusive content ala Microsoft's two episodic entries?

Tretton: We have some pretty good information in terms of what our plans are with Take-Two relative to GTA4, but I really want to make sure we get you all the exact facts, so we can get you something from Dave pretty shortly.

1UP: Why didn't you show Grand Theft Auto IV at your press conference? Why was it not there?

Tretton: Well, Dave do you want to answer that?

Karraker: You want the real answer?

Gamers: No, please lie to us some more ...

Karraker: I'll give you the real answer. They didn't send us their video.

Gamers: Whaaaaaaaa ?!?

Karraker: We requested it. We sent an e--mail out to every publisher and said send us your videos that you want put in the press conference, and they never sent it. Not much more you can say about that.

Gamers: Hmmmmmmmmm ...

1UP: Killzone is obviously not 07.

Tretton: No.

1UP: When should we expect that?

Tretton: We don't have a specific date yet. But please, rush out & buy a PS3 this holiday so I can keep my job !! I mean Moore is really socking it to me, exclusive after exclusive jumping ship, freakin' Madden @30fps ?!? Are you kidding me ?!? Bioshock, Mass Effect, & that friggin' Halo 3 ALL before Christmas ?!? I can't even get a damn video from Rockstar !! Everything's ALWAYS demoed on Xbox360 first .... (*sniff*)
