Microsoft at E3

June 8, 2011 | 1

The Electronic Entertainment Expo (hereafter referred to as “E3″ or just “the expo”)  begins this week in the Los Angeles Convention Center. The Entertainment Software Association, who puts on the show, has made E3 wax and wane over the last few years and this year it looks like it will strike a balance between the high attendance spectacle/circus it was in its peek and the sterile, industry VIP only affair from the past few years.

There is a ton of buzz around Nintendo’s new portable, the 3DS. With good reason of course. It looks like a fantastic machine and the japanese are reviewing it favorably. A 3D screen with no need for glasses, backwards compatibility, and a Zelda remake that I’ve been begging for since Mario 64 came out for the DS are the reasons I’m planning on getting one when it comes to the states.
