Little Big Planet wins big at D.I.C.E.LAS Vegas--The opening 24-hours of this year's D.I.C.E. Summit was all business and included presentations by Valve creator Gabe Newell, Capcom creative director Jun Takeuchi, and Electronic Arts CEO John Riccitiello.

If there's a crack in the IAA's classy appearance, it's the comical blue humor of Jay Mohr, who emceed the IAA's annual gala for the fourth consecutive year.

Others who were earlier victims to Mohr's humor include Harmonix co-founder Alex Rigopoulos and Epic Games design director Cliff Bleszinski. Richard "Lord British" Garriott was the subject of particular ridicule. "This man spent $30 million for Space," joked the comedian, "Maybe he should have put that money into his failed MMORPG Tabula Rasa!"

He made jokes about how his former Sony Worldwide Studios president Phil Harrison's acquisition of Atari was like salvaging the Titanic and also mentioned it was the case that Leonardo DiCaprio is now playing the company's director Nolan Bushnell in cheap WOW WoTLK Classic Gold a forthcoming Atari film.
"Did anyone else here complete Fallout 3?" He then asked the crowd before joking about Bethesda Softworks' Todd Howard. "100 hours of gaming? What time do you think we've got?" After that the performance, when the Media Molecule's Alex Evans took the stage, Mohr mockingly referred to the pale Briton as "that person that was in Trainspotting."
