12.02pm – Seated at the front row, Peter Molyneux walked straight past me, surreal.

11.59am – Just spotted Peter Molyneux walking around, no time to photo him, they are letting us in to get seated.

11.30am – In the queue for the 12pm Fable 3 showing with Peter Molyneux.. So far checked out Killzone 3 in 3D, which was pretty impressive. Spent most of the short time I had before the 11am crowds arrived on Crysis 2 for PC. It looks amazing, especially compared to the Xbox 360 version which was blurry as hell, and running at a poor frame rate. Even the guy running the Crysis 2 PC stand said to go check out the difference between the two, and how much better PC looked.
