Letter from the Editor…
Planning for this week’s issue was a bit odd for us, since so much of it has to be done on the fly. Nevertheless, we’ve persevered and have a week’s worth of great content mapped out for you. And since we know coming into E3 that one week is never enough for us or you, we plan to extend our content into next week’s Issue 3.
Since this week’s issue is concurrent with the expo, though, expect us to focus on the big revelations– dreams wished for and quashed, and any announcements that surprised or bored us. As always, we’ll have an eye on Sony and Microsoft’s goings-on, but we’re just as excited to talk about all the new hardware Nintendo’s showing. Furthermore, all Nintendojo on-site staffers have committed to taking their dramamine and sedatives, respectively, before engaging with any 3DS games or Vitality Sensor “experiences.”
We hope you’re just as eager to find out about the new hardware and games as we are, and if we don’t cover something you’re looking for this week, be sure to check back next week for part two of our E3 coverage.
P.S. What are the biggest thrills and spills of E3 2010, in your opinion? What new game are you most anxious to try or buy? Let us know in the comments below!

Sony E3 2010 Press Conference Analysis by Robert Thompson
