Among the towers, the PC accessories, the Galaga spaceships was a bit of early news perhaps including a glimpse at Doom II and Quake Live for the Xbox 360's Live Arcade.

[UPDATE: I should have just called this Quake Arena Arcade. Sorry about the "Quake Live" confusion.]

This top picture shows a bit of both with an official of some sort playing Doom II on an Xbox 360 while wearing a shirt that says Quake Arena Arcade.

The keynote is just a few hours away, we'll be blogging it live, but until then Totilo has walked through QuakeCon and witnessed constructions he never imagined. Behold the things gamers will build.

Computers glow at QuakeCon. Or have liquid sloshing through them. Or are built to look like Galaga spaceships, as you'll see....
