We'll admit it: We couldn't keep our mouths shut. Not just that -- we couldn't keep our eyes from bulging out of their sockets and our feet from skipping up and down the LA Convention Center halls. The 3DS technology was that impressive in person (in the midst of an otherwise fairly ho-hum E3 year,...

Just one week after revealing the nominees of the E3 2010 Game Critics Awards, the numbers are in and the big winner is ... Nintendo's look-ma-no-glasses 3D handheld, the 3DS. But wait, the 3DS is just the Best of Show and Best Hardware winner! If you're looking for software, look no further than i...

I know, I know -- a preview of a tech demo? In fairness, this one kind of blew my mind. Here's the skinny: outside of games we're assigned to play, there's rarely extra time while covering the controlled madness of E3 for Joystiq writers to check out something they're personally interested in ... o...

When we were ripped from the E3 3DS demo units by heartless Nintendo reps, our minds raced to calculate precisely how much we'd be willing to pay to take one home with us. The answer was ... unnerving, to say the least. While we still don't have an official price, we've got a slightly better idea c...

They may not be visible in 3D -- or even represent every game announced for Nintendo's newest handheld -- but the screenshots of 3DS titles released during E3 week are plenty, and we've hunted down every last one so you don't have to. You'll find everything from Animal Crossing to Zelda: Ocarina of...

After seeing games running in glasses-free 3D on Nintendo's black-magic powered 3DS, looking at old-fashioned "flat" images just isn't that much fun anymore. Still, these official photos of (the still-a-prototype) the 3DS itself -- in red and blue -- are pretty impressive. Emphasis on pretty. They'...

Nintendo has released the specs for the 3DS, including the stuff we couldn't tell from looking at the thing, like screen resolution and weight. The 3.02-inch bottom screen has a 320x240 pixel resolution, a small bump over the DS's 256x192 resolution. The larger (3.53-inch) top screen has an 800x240 ...

Star Fox 64 3D is one of the few playable titles out of the oodles of announced 3DS projects on display at Nintendo's E3 booth. It's a short demo of the classic N64 game's first level, fading out after a few seconds of the boss battle. The 3DS version of Star Fox 64 is instantly familiar to play...

Of all the demos Nintendo showed for the 3DS, most were non-interactive video displays with "Please enjoy the 3D video" on the bottom screen. This group includes Mario Kart, Animal Crossing, Dead or Alive, Resident Evil, and more. But a few were games. I played most of the games available at Ninten...

Wondering what Nintendo and everyone else is developing for the 3DS? While the list of games isn't "everything" (Nintendo characterizes it as a "partial list of upcoming first- and third- party games"), it does include some exciting standouts -- a new Pilotwings and Paper Mario, for starters. We'll...

Though there have been shades of it in games like Wii Sports Resort, we've been without a new entry in the Pilotwings series since 1996 with Pilotwings 64. The 14-year wait is finally coming to a close with Pilotwings Resort, which is headed to the 3DS according to a list distributed this morning....

We were just whisked away to a totally secret back room to get some hands-on time with the Nintendo 3DS. While it may look a lot like the DS at first blush, the hardware we handled had some notable enhancements. First: That 3D screen. The effect is pronounced, but seems far less distracting than...

If you've got a few leftover questions about the 3DS, Zelda: Skyward Sword or any of the other new products announced during Nintendo's E3 keynote, we suggest you check out the new Iwata Asks video that's currently up on Nintendo's site. The company's president fires off queries at Shigeru Miyamoto...

We're in LA's Nokia Center, just 20 minutes from the beginning of Nintendo's E3 2010 keynote. Of course, you've got your Nintendo bingo card printed out to follow along at home, ready for Reggie to drop the 3DS and, who knows, maybe a Wii HD? Too much to ask you say? Hit the jump, let's go!...
