E3 (Ecstasy to the 3rd Power) Day One

Today is the official start of E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo).  If your a gamer, this is like the granddaddy of events.  To get in you have to be on their invite list.  You have to work for a website of company that has millions of customers and worldwide influence.  I fit neither of those descriptions.  But I am still down with the Ecstasy that is E3.  Today E3 officially kicked off, even though things have been going on in LA for a couple of days now.  And Microsoft started kicked off the show by showing us their newest add-on for the 360.  Their Project Natal will be officially named, Kinect and will be for sale in the US this November and will work with existing 360 consoles.  Here is a look into Microsoft’s brain:

Now something for Wii fans.  The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword was show off today by Nintendo.  This might be one of the coolest Wii games ever.
