CHEGheads Going to Gaming Paradise . . . E3  

The CHEGheads are headed to E3 Expo 2010. Both a trade show and a celebration of gaming, the annual Electronic Entertainment Expo presented by the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) is one of the most talked about industry events of the year. With the opening only a few days away, the E3 excitement is building on the blogosphere as gamers anxiously await news on “what’s next” in the gaming world.

Alternate interfaces for gaming consoles will garner considerable attention. Microsoft’s world premiere for the motion-sensing, “controller-free” Project Natal is scheduled for the Expo, and  3-D technologies will have their place in the sun with Nintendo showing off the next iteration of the highly successful DS line—the 3DS handheld gaming system. There is also some speculation that Sony will debut the next version of the PSP. We’ll see. As always, a host of new jaw-dropping game titles will make initial appearances too.

Complementing the Expo, a number of other game-related events take place throughout the city. I’m excited about seeing Tommy Tallarico and Jack Wall’s Video Games Live and attending the EA Sports Strikeforce Live mixed martial arts event, both at the Nokia Theater.

We hope to bump into you at E3 and if you are interested in following the CHEGheads adventures, check out our E3 news on Twitter. Plus, we will share post-E3 reactions once we’re back home.

Meanwhile, what product releases are you excited about from E3 this year?
