preGame 47: Inversion teaser; SOCOM 4; WWE All Stars

On today's preGame, we'll show off a teaser for Inversion, watch a video about the tech behind SOCOM 4, and get a quick review of WWE All Stars.


On today's preGame, we'll be screening the teaser-trailer for Inversion, a game set to hit consoles in February 2012. So why all the excitement now? Let's just say the live-action trailer leaves us with a few unanswered questions.

Next we'll take a look at the technology behind the next installment of the SOCOM franchise in SOCOM 4. Find out how the game attempts to max out the PlayStation 3 and how development made PlayStation Move a major factor in the title's creation.

Jeff will then take a look at WWE All Stars for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. There's been plenty of wrestling titles that have come before, but none has ever boasted a roster as impressive as All Stars. While it's a bit arcade-y, it's definitely one of the most satisfying games that really capture the over-the-top action WWE fans have grown to love.

Finally, Mark brings us a fresh new trailer for Street Fighter x Tekken, a new fighting mashup game that slams the two franchises up against one another. There's plenty of in-game action here, so make sure to stick around for the first look.

All these stories plus your chance to win another Halo: Reach Legendary Bundle and an ode to the man who invented cartridge-based gaming on this episode of preGame! Be sure to tune in next week when we'll have Mortal Kombat and Portal 2 both live in the studio.
