E3 For All - your front row ticket!
Friday, 19th October 2007 at 4:56 pm
Some may see this weekend's new E for all show, as a chance for the public to experience the sort of crazy gaming extravaganza that previously colossal games trade show E3 became famous for.
But you may not realise the public have been getting into the real E3 for the past three years, thanks to United Games Media, who sat a few lucky members of the gaming public in-front of games such as Unreal III, Super Mario Galaxy, SPORE, Wii Fit, Singstar, Assassin's Creed and many more, with cameras right on them, to capture the moment their jaw hit the floor.
Real playtests of real games by real gamers.
And now - you've got access to it all.
Online right now at www.e3videos.com
Watch as Alex Colcombe from Lincolnshire, complains about the lack of innovation, only for Nintendo's Rob Saunders to take him behind a curtain for the world's first look at Nintendo DS in 2004.
See how Tim Chadfield, also fromthe UK, had his breath taken away, when Sony presented their PSP also at E3 2004.
Be there, as the ladies from PC Clan Girlz Destruct take the X360 launch games through their paces when it was first unveiled at E3 2005.
Fast-forwards to 2006, and gamer Dan Molina from Los Angeles, tells it like it is as he gets to grips with PlayStation 3's Genji - "What a disappointment!", only for him to wrap his hands around the controls in WarHawk, and wrap his eyes around the graphics in Heavenly Sword to concede: "now this(!)...this re-installs my faith in the PS3 line-up!"
Watch as gamer Jovan Rocha is one of the first people ever to get their hands on Super Mario Galaxy. "This is so new!" he exclaims, in wide-eyed-wonder.
This is what real games journalism is all about, and it comes full circle, as coming soon, we reveal new details about NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams for Wii, in our latest exclusive video from 2007!
In the meanwhile, we've also uploaded a 25minute extract from our hour-long documentary: "What's Next?:For Videogames" - a project initially funded by loans from The Princes Trust - so please show your support.
Further content will be launched online in the coming weeks, from E3 2007, Develop 2007, and more from United Games Media's exclusive feature length documentary: "What's Next?: For Videogames".
So keep 'em peeled, on www.e3videos.com
