With just hours to go until this year's E3 games show officially opens for business in Los Angeles, GamesRadar has managed to obtain an exclusive sneak preview of the show floor.

So, that was E3 2006. The most manic week of the gaming calendar has hurtled by once again in a tornado of news and a frenzy of game playing. Now, as relative calm returns and the chaos slowly seeps away, we look back on the big games, the big announcements, the highlights and the disappointments.
Much of the week's hottest news happened before the doors had opened on E3, with Sony, Nintendo and Microsoft all making some big announcements at their pre-show

You'll be able to play Road Rash, Desert Strike, Wing Commander and more while parking your behind on a bus soon, thanks to EA Replay, the PSP retro collection. We've uncovered some images of these old greats in their new widescreen-o-matic incarnations; just hit the image tab to see the
Megapublisher Electronic Arts announced today that it'll be dusting off 14 of its old 16-bit games - some classic, others less so - and jamming them together into a compilation called EA Replay, due to hit PSPs on Nov. 7.
As has become standard for such collections, players will be able to challenge each other in certain games via an ad-hoc connection. Additionally, you'll be able to save your game at any point in any of the games (thank God) and unlock original game art as you play. Better
Earth Defense Force 2 is the king of all 'shit games' in Japan. That's not an insult. The alien shooting cult hit belongs to a genre of so-bad-it's-good games called kuso ge or 'shit games' in Japan. People love them, ironically at least.
The newest entry into the series, Earth Defense Force 2 Portable comes with two UMDs in the package, which ensures that you’ll always have an extra copy for an ad-hoc co-op buddy to shoot waves upon waves of identical, questionably-animated giant insects with...
Some people say you can have too much of a good thing, but we say they can bugger right off. A cake is good, right? But are two cakes bad? No, theyre just more cake, and we like cake so well take all we can get. Om nom nom.
In gaming terms, the only thing better than a great videogame is a great videogame that acts as the start of a great franchise. Final Fantasy, Burnout, Super Mario Bros… We love them not only because theyre great but also because of what they later gave us. The only
When it premiered at E3 2007, echochrome was the talk of the town, were the internet a town and forum posters people. Nearly a year has passed since then with very few things being mentioned as its buzz slowly quieted. Then a bolt from the blue appeared in the form of a post on the official Playstation blog. The post let everyone know that the game, scheduled for a May launch, will have its demo released it tomorrow on PSN and for
Sony's mind-melting puzzler, Echochrome, is out on the US PSN today for your brain-aching pleasure.
In case you've not been following it, Echochrome is an innovative little title which sees you rotating simple 3D environments to create paths for a little walking make to traverse.
It uses a clever optical illusion mechanic, where obstacles like holes or gaps in the path disappear when you can't see them. It hurts just trying to
Sony's annual E3 press conference opened with what could have been the biggest reveal of the entire show if it hadn't been leaked last week: the new $499 price of the PS3, as well as the introduction of a new $599 model that comes with an 80GB hard drive and a copy of online-enabled dirt racer Motorstorm. This left biggy-wig Jack Tretton (who began the event speaking through his character in the PS3 virtual world Home) to launch right into the publisher's game-centric, four-part
