It was shown to a select, invitation only, audience. Gamespot give us the play by play.

Sounds pretty good so far to me.

I like this:
Harrison ended the demonstration of the media bar with a quick demo of the PS3's network-communication functionality, which lets consumers use their PSPs to check out all the media on their PS3s wirelessly.

EDIT: I forgot one more thing.
Harrison's opening chat concluded with a sneak peek at a PS3 game not playable on the TGS show floor, NBA 07. Though the game was less than complete, Harrison noted that it ran at 1080p much like several games on the TGS show floor, including Ridge Racer 7, Gran Turismo HD, and a handful of others.

What is the point of showing it to invited people only? Seriously this bugs the hell out of me when developers do this. Aren't the gamers the ones who should be seeing the early builds and not just some press-people? The gamers are those who are going to buy the game in the end, not the press. And why not just invite some people to sony hq at some given time and let them see it, why wait 'til TGS, a show for GAMES and Gamers!!? I hate being left in the dark... :o

It's nothing different from what we've seen of the interface already. Maybe you haven't seen the vid I guess. All aspects of the interface are still not final, that's why they don't show it to everyone.

IGN has another high def vid of the interface that's been out for a month or so as well.

But there are a lot of games that are being shown behind curtains, like FFXIII. It just sucks that we gamers are those who are left out! :thumbdwn:
