If you needed a reason to turn on the TV to your local "guy" channel (aka Spike TV) on December 10, here's a pretty good one.
The annual Video Game Awards show, televised on Spike, takes place on December 10 and has been a launching pad for exclusive trailers and game announcements in recent years.
And according to a billboard posted in New York City's theater district, it looks like that trend will continue. The billboard promises that the VGAs will reveal "13 exclusive world premieres."
The ad copy continues to say Metal Gear Solid: Rising and Bioshock Infinite will be among the exclusive titles featured during the spectacle, along with "a PS3 exclusive you won't believe."
As you might expect, this is leading to rampant speculation about what the mysterious PS3 title may be. Among the favorite candidates is a recently-leaked game called Title Fight, which looks to be a Super Smash Bros-esque brawler that unites Sony's powerhouse franchise characters in a free-for-all battle.
Other, more baseless speculation includes rumblings of a new God of War title, Final Fantasy XV, and a Final Fantasy VII HD remake.
Of course, to actually find out what the title is, you'll have to watch the Video Game Awards next week (or just wait for someone else to Tweet about it).

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
