Crowds go wild for Wii...

Friday 12 May
Two pictures taken five minutes apart on the last morning of E3 tell some of the story of this year's event.

As soon as the doors opened this morning crowds ran to Nintendos stand to get their hands on Wii. Queues immediately built up with gamers eager to get to grips with Nintendo's new remote and sample the varied delights of WarioWare: Smooth Moves, Metroid Prime 3, Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and Super Mario Galaxy.

This being the first time Wii is playable it's understandable that there's so much enthusiasm
