Nintendo’s announcement of the Wii U console at E3 this year was followed by a wide variety of various game demos, or “experiences,” as Reggie Fils-Aimee decided to call them.

During their E3 press conference on Monday, SCEA president and CEO Jack Tretton announced that a 24″ Sony brand 3D TV would be made widely available as a starting point to would-be 3D consumers.

Thankfully, there’s been a big E3 trailer released, and it looks daaaaamned good! Agent 47 makes his way through a house, killing various guards in creative and inventive ways before finally reaching his target: a redheaded woman in the shower. The trailer looks great and is mostly […]
