Many publishers used this year’s Spike Video Game Awards as a launching pad for their future games lineup.  Notable titles include Halo: Reach and Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands.  Surprise announcements include Arkham Asylum 2, a reboot of the Medal of Honor series, a stand-alone Green Day Rock Band game, and a lead up to the 2010 Tron movie called Tron Evolution.  Check out the Halo: Reach and Green Day: Rock Band trailers below and look after the break for trailers for the rest of the games mentioned here, plus more!  2010 already looks to be a solid year for video gamers.  Get pumped.  And for those who are curious–The Beatles: Rock Band won (and rightfully deserved) music game of the year and Uncharted 2: Among Thieves nabbed Game of the Year.  Look after the break for the full rundown of winners.

Note: A press release announces that the Halo: Reach multiplayer beta begins Spring 2010.
