Once inside the Insomniac studio the press were divided into groups each starting in a separate room where a developer or producer would go over certain aspects of the game.


- Insomniac confirmed there would be a total of 23 weapons and 8-9 gadgets.

- Merchants in every level to purchase weapons, ammo, and gadgets.

The following weapons were either demoed or playable...

- Predator Rockets: multi-lock aim missiles

- Death Springs: deadly grenade that bursts pink slinkies that destroy everything in there path...good way to clear enemy infested areas.
