LOS ANGELES--The Electronics Entertainment Expo, or E3, celebrates its 15th iteration this year.
Much of the big news was announced during the keynotes earlier in the week. But the Expo itself, which takes place in the Los Angeles Convention Center, is where the press and general public have access to 720,000 square feet of exhibit space filled with demos of upcoming titles.
Outside, cycle rickshaw riders, paid for by IO Interactive to promote the Kane & Lynch sequel, offer to cart attendees between the two halls where exhibits are taking place.
To launch Virgin Gaming, Virgin's Sir Richard Branson set up a $1 million cash giveaway that E3 attendees can register for with their badges. The money was put inside a transparent vault outside of the LA Convention Center.
No this isn't a bionic arm, it's Forcetek's new XIO Virtual Gaming System. It brings motion controls that can track arm movements. The company plans to expand it to other parts of the body including the back and head.
