When I arrived in Los Angeles to cover the E3 Media and Business Summit - the year's biggest trade show for the video-game industry - I didn't quite know what to expect.
Walking into the L.A. Convention Center, the first visions that struck my senses were the rhythmic motions of wannabe musicians. Whether players were strumming away on 'Rock Band' or waving wands to the beat on a Wii, music games jumped to the forefront of the E3 Expo.
This year's scaled-down event leaves behind the memories of booth babes and ever-expanding displays of gaming might, yet still holds visual surprises with all the vendors displaying their latest releases on mounted TVs at once. EA's 'Mirror's Edge' caught my eye right away with its solid graphics and focus on first-person running instead of shooting.
