Well it's started and I'm excited so I figured a thread was in order to discuss it. Good news first - the boomerang controller for PS3 is officially gone, Call of Duty 3 is next-gen bound, Battlefield 2142 has a stunning trailer and so does Spore which looks unbelievable already, check it out here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WHaulHxmO4A (it's a long, long video so dial-up owners be warned :) ) Only six hours to Sony's official unveiling :D :D

God of War 2 on PS2 or PS3 - that is the main thing I NEED to know from E3.

I'm right there with you Rob, I'm more intrigued and buzzed by the trailers for GoW2 than I am for any of the next-gen videos I've seen so far - especially EA ones that say 'Actual Game Footage' and then show something so obviously CG as to be insulting.

Holy crap - watching the Sony show now and it is insane, Heavenly Sword looks wild, Genji 2 big and the F1 game using the PSP as a wing mirror is just brilliant, excuse the fanboy rantings :D

Well the ps3 is officially priced (as of yesterday) $599 and $699 (canadian currency) for the 20 gig and 60 gig. The controller is the exact same as the ps2 which is sort of a good thing. They also kind of copied Nintendo with a controller you can tilt back and forth (motion sensor). Halo 3 also has a 2 minute video which is awesome. It's officially announced!

Those prices... don't get me wrong, they will sell a ton, but those prices are a bit ridiculous, imo. I'll just keep playing WoW. :)

They're no where near as bad as was originally thought tbh and are not far off what the PS2 originally shipped at, meaning Sony are taking a BIG hit upfront on the hardware to get it in people's homes. I have one pre-ordered :D

Prior to the general floor opening today (now!!!) the list of games shown that got me a wanting are:

Lost Planet
Halo 3
GTA IV
Gears of War
Fable 2
Too Human
Heavenly Sword
Crysis
Spore
Splinter Cell: Double Agent
Haze
Elveon
Eight Days
Mass Effect
God of War 2
Crackdown
Project HAMMER

all can be found at the gamespot E3 section where I must have watched at least 40 videos so far (sad I know):D http://uk.gamespot.com/e3/index.html

Now inevitably some of these games are going to fall down or not be released for ages, but I'm really enjoying the next-gen content for all parties and though an unashamed console gamer it really does seem to be the best E3 in a long, long time.

Bioshock takes my fancy.

And of course Gears of War is still looking awesome.

I watched the Sony conference and wasn't really impressed by much there, though admittedly the video quality was so bad you could barely make out the graphics on most of their demos (was watching on Gamespot).
The only other thing I've had a chance to look at was the Halo video, which is as amazing as I'd expected. But then, it's the only one I've seen in full quality (from the Bungie website - so big I had to borrow a friend's computer (and larger monitor) to watch it), so as far as I know all the game demos might be that good.

MTW2 (http://media.putfile.com/med2_video1601) trailer was posted, its obviously been leaked from somewhere as the quality is very poor...

Still it had me drooling all over my keyboard

Can't wait for the official stuff.
