E3's experimental move to Santa Monica last year cost the ESA $5 million after breaking its contract with the LA Convention Center.

We haven't heard much about Mario Kart Wii since it was unveiled at E3. Thanks to one intrepid forum goer with just a scanner and a dream, we now have a little more info on the game from the UK's Official Nintendo Magazine. Apparently MKW will support up to 16 players in a game (does that transl...

Nintendo's president Satoru Iwata sat down for a probing interview with Newsweek's N'Gai Croal. While N'Gai admits the interview was long overdue for publishing (it was taken back during E307), it has several interesting tidbits within. It only makes us think that it should've been published that mu...

Chris Hardin over at Nintendo Players managed to snag some video of Geometry Wars for the DS, taking two different videos of the game's promised interplanetary conflicts between geometric shapes.

... The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass! At least, it was the best handheld game at this year's E3, according to the Game Critics Association. While a small part of our hearts hoped Contra 4 would take the trophy (after all, we know Zelda is all kinds of good), we can't say we're at all surprise...

Was there any doubt that LittleBigPlanet is the most original game of E3?

We're just going to say the editing by GameTrailers was done to spare you. We've shown you the face of a man after the Disney press conference, we even gave the thing an award for being so fantastically painful. Is it as bad as the Jamie Kennedy performance at the Activision press conference? W...

Contra 4 has been nominated for a 2007 Game Critics Best of E3 Award for Best Handheld Game. It's in the running with The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Ho...

All of us here in the Joystiq network are finally settling back into the daily grind after the WiFi-less chaos of E3. We've spent a good week and a half collecting our thoughts and have compiled our own awards for E3. Of course, we've got best and worst awards, but we've also come up with a few "sp...

We haven't fully recovered from E3 2007 just yet, but in the final stages (there's 12, naturally) of recovery, we're told it's only proper to hand out awards for the best (and sometimes the worst) of what we saw in Santa Monica. The nominations for this year's Game Critics Awards were given out on...
