E3 2010 (3 Comments) (link)

DiGiTaL MoNkEY has made a few threads reporting on interesting things from E3:

One of the big stories is Microsoft's Project Natal, now launched under the official name "Kinect". This is similar to the idea of the Wii or the PlayStation Move, but instead of a controller, you use your whole body to interact with the games. Lots of info and videos in this thread:

Over on the PlayStation side of things, there's now PlayStation Plus, a subscription content service with some interesting features including "Full Game Trial": This premium feature gives you the chance to try PSN and Blu-ray disc titles before you buy them in a whole new way. We are not talking normal demos of selected parts of a game here. With Full Game Trial, you can download the full game and play it as if you owned it for approximately one hour, depending on the game, before you decide if you want to buy it or not.

Also, Steam is coming to PS3, along with the much-anticipated Portal 2. Newell said the new features will make Portal 2 "the best version on any console." Launch and release dates were not announced; Portal 2 will release sometime in 2011.
