This week in Sundae Funday! We’re just two weeks away from E3. I don’t want to turn this into a “What do you want from E3” post — let’s face it, that will only lead to confusion and tears — but I was curious as to what people think the “theme” of E3 will be this year.

 

If you ignore the 3DS (which was the subject of most of last year’s E3 buzz), I’d say the focus was squarely on the expansion of motion controllers and incorporating them into  different kinds of games. What do you feel this year will bring?

 

While you mull over that, here’s this week’s three scoops of news!
