Several major publishers took the opportunity to announce or confirm new games, with separate Gamasutra stories noting Bethesda's debut of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and THQ/Volition and Guillermo Del Toro's announcement of horror adventure game inSane. But there were several other video trailer debuts on the televised-live awards, subsequently made available GameTrailers.com's VGAs page, including a return for Electronic Arts' SSX snowboarding franchise in the military-tinged SSX: Deadly Descents, plus confirmation for Activision and Radical's action game sequel Prototype 2, due in 2012.
