E3 09: Hub

360 |PS3 |Wii |PSP |DS |PC |PS2 |

This week is E3 2009 - for gamers, the most exciting and crazy time of the year. We're in Los Angeles for the show and will be bravely wading through the thick end of things to bring you that special brand of GamesRadar reportage you won't find anywhere else on the 'net. To accomodate our adventures, we've created this magnificent E3 2009 hub page, where you'll be able to keep track of all our coverage - new games, new screens, new videos, and most importantly, new features.

And the information here will grow as news is announced, so keep checking back to see what's happening. We're hardcore, so will be posting stories around the clock. As if all that isn't enough E3 for your pipes, you can follow our Twitter feed (opens in new tab) for the very latest from the show floor.
