The 10 sexiest photos from E3 2011

E3 is many things to many people. It's exciting. It's nerve-wracking. It's enthralling. But most of all, I think we can all agree that it's sexy beyond belief. And this year's show floor contained a particularly high quotient of the sexy. So much so that we've collected together the 10 sexiest images from E3 2011, and presented them in a gallery here for your perusal and appraisal. Brace yourselves. It's going to get hot.

Mad Catz Tritton Xbox 360 headset

Smash! Such solidity. Such sense of purpose. Such uncompromising form, emphasised by an eye-catching but never showy soft gloss finish. Blunt but sensual, with the delicate detail of the smashed glass drawing a powerful juxtaposition between intricate kineticism and unswerving stoicism.

Mad Catz FPS Pro controller

From this angle, kind of sexy in a sleek, battle-hardened cyborg ninja space marine kind of way. If Master Chief and Ryu Hayabusa had sexy sex and produced a sexy offspring, it would look like this.

But from this angle? Ultra sexy! Shadowy. Moody. Mysterious. Red lights glowing ominously and textured detail subtler, but somehow more striking. It's a lot like Tron, if Tron was a subdued, smokey noir nightclub rather than a film about tiny computer men.

Sony's PS Vita

Sleek. Elegant. Simple. We're all used to the Vita's paddle-lozenge silouette by now, but here it's showing that it can be minimalist, unobtrusive and classy. It's the perfect way to show off its often overlooked brushed steel curves too. They're a hot but understated detail.

The rear touch panel. Mmmm. Rear touch. Sexy.

Razer Star Wars: The Old Republic keyboard

The interplay between the keyboard's thin, delicate panel and beliggerently razor blade corners gives it a striking countenance, simultaneously entrancing and intimidating. Truly the dominatrix of the keyboard world.

Razer Star Wars: The Old Republic mouse

Smooth, soft roundness set off delectably with a pearly metallic finish, broken up with understated but assertive elegence by the angular thread patterning and slick lines of the side buttons. Imposing but inviting.

Steel Series Diablo III mouse

An otherwise unremarkable mouse made remarkable by the underplayed power of the inset red LEDs. Blotted out by the dense matt black of the scroll wheel, looking at them is like looking into the glowing embers of the fires of Mount Doom. Pure, simmering, glowering heat and rage.

Nintendo's Wii U

No-one ever pays attention to the back of controllers. But they should. Because they're sexy. The smooth, inviting curve above that soft ridge fairly demands that your fingers caress it, and the sharper alcove below is so snug and comforting a fit for the digits that it should be illegal.


Bold but soft. Robust but subtle. Evoking the powerful and the pristine all at the same time. And that satin finish makes you want to stroke it all day long.

Hottest E3 ever? We rather think so. Now if you'll excuse me I'm going to go outside and turn a cold hose on myself.

    Somebody should tell MadCatz that their left stick and DPad got flipped around by a saboteur. It better be that, because I'd hate to think they actually want to keep the left stick there.

    Still love the look of the Mad Catz controller, even if it is just the black ops version without the cool graphics. However, my black ops controllers right stick wouldn't register when I moved it to the left. Very disappointing especially considering the rising costs of our hobby.

    Steel Series mice look so nice, but I've never found one that's suited me. I guess that's why I'm a Razer girl.

    I'd love to get the PS Vita when it hits the shelves... but I'm always a wait for 1 year before I get the new game gadget / console that came our this year kinda guy... by that time they've usually ---> worked out a lot of quirks, got cheaper, had bigger library, and may have even included new additions or better versions or remodelled... but this one is a sure buy for me by hook or by crook!!!
  • GodofPS314 - June 12, 2011 6:57 p.m.

    What is up with you guy's in Madcatz? Are you sponsoring their horrible products now or what? I mean them working with Tritton is cool, but that controller looks like shit and we'll break in a couple of days. On another note, I don't even play KoTOR and that keyboard looks magical.

    I really expected something different... touche' gamesradar people -_-

    This might seem like an odd place to ask, but does anybody know what type of touch screen the Wii U controller has? A stylus would indicate a resistive touch screen, which are, in my opinion, vastly inferior to capacitive touch screens. The only way that they could have a stylus and a capacitive touch screen would be to: 1. Have a slightly electrically-charged tip on the stylus (which I seriously doubt, or 2. Develop a new touch screen technology that senses both compression and electricity on the surface. If it is a resistive touch then that would explain why it doesn't support multi-touch. Resistive screens are also cheaper, which makes sense for Nintendo. If they are resistive screens, though, I can see them breaking and wearing out relatively quickly, especially when used by kids and those not familiar with electronics.

    Hopefully the Wii U gets a better Mario Kart than the Wii did. I still drop in Double Dash on the Wii over the Wii version.
  • minispike - June 10, 2011 9 p.m.

    o.o does that keyboard have a built in touchpad mouse? because if so then I must have it. no doubts.
  • 510BrotherPanda - June 10, 2011 7:24 p.m.

    Wait a second. WAIT A SECOND. The Wii U controller has a STYLUS???
  • d0x - June 10, 2011 7:07 p.m.

    Dont get me wrong I understand that Mad Catz's thing is to make controllers...but why would you replicate the stick placement of the dual shock if you are trying to make a new FPS controller? The Mad Catz FPS Pro controller is useless to me. My Major gripe with Sony's design is how the sticks are right next to each other. Im not a fan of their deadzones or how squishy they feel but I can get over that but after years and years of playing shooters with that controller starting with Alien Trilogy on PS1 I still cant stand where the sticks are placed and I dont perform as well with it as I do any other controller. Please Mad Catz...change it PLEASE! lol

    So sexy!!!! I love the back of the wii u, it looks like its gonna be comfortable @Funnynamehere It does but its more looking like the wii, besides its just a prototype
  • FunnyNameHere - June 10, 2011 6:45 p.m.

    Is it just me or does the wii u look kinda like a 360?
