And that’s that. One of the greatest E3s for years is done. There were megatons. People are still hiding under their kitchen tables. The conferences were nothing if not sensational. Our goosebumps refuse to settle.
But let’s not be rational. Let’s mark the platform holders’ performances out of ten. Let’s say who “won”. Why not?

New motion control tech from Sony was talked about in the company’s E3 press conference today.
Been working on it for a few years, apparently. As you’d hope.
The prototype of the new controller showed a glowing sphere on the end of the stick. PS Eye tracks it.
The demonstration showed 1-to-1 motion control. On the screen, the controller became a racket in the guy’s hand, changing into various other bits and bobs, such as swords and guns.
It has true 3D pointing too, and if you change angles to the camera it’ll notice. In FPS mode, you can move and shoot but, will sometimes need buttons.
The ability to use two controllers is there as well, and with one in each hand you can play with building blocks, paint, use a sword and shield and fire virtual arrows.
When you move the camera follows you, should you drop down on one knee, or some such.
More information is promised from Sony soon.

Sony announced Final Fantasy XIV as a PlayStation 3 exclusive today.
The MMO will ship next year.
A trailer showed an open area, boats. Dragon blowing fire on stuff. Airships. A dark haired knight of some sort.
We are speechless.

It’s so on. Microsoft delivered a blistering E3 keynote in LA yesterday, leaving many shellshocked at the depth and quantity of its announcements and Sony with everything to do in its conference today.
PSP Go’s a cert, as are God of War III, Heavy Rain and the like, but what else? We could tell you what we know, but we’d be in mortal danger.
Don’t blink, for God’s sake. It’s make or break time. Nuke or die. Boom or bust.
The Sony E3 press conference starts at 11.00am PST/7.00pm BST/8.00pm CET. Get our liveblog after the break.

Microsoft kicked E3 off to one hell of a start yesterday, with wall-to-wall game announcements, a ton of exclusivity deals and reveals, and a full showing of the forever-rumoured motion camera, Project Natal. Both Nintendo and Sony get their shot at the LA headlines today.
Nintendo’s conference begins at 9.00am PST/5.00pm BST/6.00pm CET today.
Sony’s conference begins at 11.00am PST/7.00pm BST/8.00pm CET today.
Obviously, we’ll be liveblogging both. We’ll give you plenty of warning before Nintendo starts, and we’ll leave this story in the top bar until we start properly getting ready for action.
So don’t worry. We’re here for you.
