Brian Tong checks out the show floor, covers the main trends at E3 and makes a few new friends along the way.
>>From way downtown Las Angeles for CNET TV, I'm Tim Kitrose [phonetic] saying NBA Jam is back boom shakalaka. >>Brian Tong here with CNET.com on the show floor at E3 2010 and we saw a lot of themes here this year. We saw 3D gaming. Motion controlling is here and here to stay and retro gaming is making a comeback. We're here inside Nintendo's booth and you can see behind me everyone is getting their hands on the Nintendo 3DS. Now, we really can't show you the screen because it doesn't do justice and you won't be able to see how good it looks but there's a reason there are huge lines here to get their hands on this little new toy. I know you guys can't see what I'm playing but I'm playing with the 3D version of Nintendogs and this dog is very cute. Now, 3D is not only going to be on a little handheld, the Sony PS3 is pushing hard with Kill Zone 3. We're here inside of Sony's PlayStation booth and another theme that we've see here that is huge is motion-based gaming. So, here in my hand I got the PlayStation Move. If you guys want your ultimate fix of 3D gaming and motion gaming, well, this is the place to be. Put on my shades cause it's game time. ^M00:01:25 [ Music ] ^M00:01:32 If you like motion control gaming but you don't want a controller, checkout Microsoft's Connect where your body is the controller. Now, we've all heard the saying "What's old is now new." And that same things holds true with gaming with classics coming back like Mortal Combat and NBA Jam. >>We had a game so many years ago in NBA Jam that was really like the most rockus horsepower high energy octane game ever made and if you look back at it, you know, it's one step removed really from the early Pong and Atari kind of things. >>I think there was something magical about the 90s and people playing video games, you know, a lot of people were probably and, you know, high school or grade school or something like that and so seeing old games with the new presentation with the hardware and the technology that we have today there's something that's nostalgic about that so it was a combination of the nostalgia and, you know, the new so I think it's a great combination. >>So at E3 2010 we saw a lot of great new announcements for hardware. We saw a lot of great games. I'm just going to enjoy the show floor and let's hope I can make it out of here alive. ^M00:02:37 [ Music ] ^M00:02:44
