Sony Computer Entertainment America announced today Toy Test 2004, an annual event in Seattle, WA that allows gamers of all ages to test out the year's hottest titles that will be filling shelves this holiday season. The line-up includes red-hot first-party titles including Gran Turismo 4, Jak 3, Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal, Hot Shots Golf Fore!, Sly 2: Band of Thieves, the ever-so-innovative EyeToy and the latest titles to utilize it, EyeToy: Groove and EyeToy: Antigrav, as well as upcoming third party games like Madden NFL 2005, Tony Hawk's Underground 2 and Burnout 3: Takedown. After playing through them, attendees are asked to vote on which they liked best, and the results from the survey will become the backdrop for the broadcast segment, scheduled to premiere on NBC's "The Today Show" a week before Thanksgiving weekend.
