Who's Winning E3? Day 2

My press conference is bigger than yours.

Let's face it, yesterday was just a warm-up. Now, with Sony and Microsoft's conferences done and Nintendo's still to come, E3 is truly underway.

Today's Top Trailers - Day 2

The best and worst of E3's videos so far.

It's only day two of E3 and already the internet is awash with trailers. In fact, you'd have a job to watch the whole lot of them before Gamescom kicks off.

Who's Winning E3? Day 1

Yes, it IS a popularity contest.

We could sit around all day talking about how marvellous E3 is. How it's a wonderful opportunity for our favourite entertainment industry to shine, to showcase its diverse range of exciting new offerings, technical achievements and creative talent. But we know that really, it's all about who's got the biggest console.

Hackers attack Nintendo servers

No harm done though, says company.

Cheer up, Sony! It's not just you hackers are having a pop at - turns out Nintendo recently took a bullet too. Or rather, dodged one.

Fable: The Journey domain registered

Along with three Kinect-themed titles.

Microsoft has registered Fablethejourney.org as a domain name, along with three other phrases which seem to suggest a bunch of Kinect titles is on the way.

Yes, it's reader review time - where we look over your haircut and dress sense and give you marks out of ten. Or more accurately, where we pick the best reader-written articles submitted in the last month.

Games Jam to feature on Radio 4

Gibson puts on best BBC voice.

Fans of indie gaming, Peter Molyneux and not washing for three days might like to know there's a new documentary about said topics coming to Radio 4.

Eurogamer.net Podcast #68

Dark Souls! Ridge Racer! Butlers!

This week's Eurogamer.net podcast sees us journeying to exotic Dubai. All right, talking to two people who've recently been to exotic Dubai, mainly about the video games they saw there.

Reader Review of the Month - April

Save the best until Helghast.

Yes, it's that time again! Time for the Eurogamer editorial staff to trawl through the many excellent reader reviews you've submitted, quaking in our boots as we pray the bossman remains ignorant of the fact you do this stuff better and for free.

Eurogamer on The Apprentice

How it happened.

Did you watch it, then? For those who didn't, last night's episode of The Apprentice was all about trying to sell mobile apps. Along with new iterations of much-loved characters Scouse Whinger, Uppity Toff and Person Who Will Obviously Win Just By Not Shouting All the Time, it starred the Eurogamer Expo.

Eurogamer.net Podcast #67

Brink special with Paul Wedgwood.

Are you a fan of multiplayer shooters, opinionated British game developers and rampant sexism? Then what a treat we have in store for you with this week's Eurogamer.net podcast!

Michael Jackson: The Experience

PS3 vs. 360 face-off.

Oh, Michael. How you are missed. You had so much to give, just like your dear friend Princess Diana, who taught us that it's OK to devote your life to landmines and homelessness and own a wardrobe full of 10,000 frocks.

Eurogamer.net Podcast #64

Sex and the silly.

Hello there! Hold onto your headphones, pop pickers - it's time for the Eurogamer.net podcast! Yes, we had too much orange squash with lunch!

Reader Review of the Month

Diggers with attitude.

Spring has officially sprung. The daffodils are blooming, the bunnies are frolicking in the fields and a fresh new batch of reader reviews is hatching down in the barn, just next to where the lambs are being herded onto the abattoir lorry.

We Dare


The problem with trying to outlaw something is you just end up increasing demand. Ask D. H. Lawrence, the author of Spycatcher or anyone who's ever tried to ban Judy Blume's Forever from a girls' comprehensive.

PlayStation Home: What's new?

"You'll be pleasantly surprised."

The Game Developers Conference is perhaps where PlayStation Home's heart is. After all it was there, in 2007, that Phil Harrison unveiled Sony's vision of a networked virtual world for PlayStation 3.
