Countdown to E3 - T minus 2 and counting

A Hyrulian legend resurfaces ...

The much-anticipated 2005 edition of E3 opens in Los Angeles on Wednesday. The geek community as a whole (and the gaming community in particular) are all awash with excitement, drooling over the prospect of three next-generation consoles being shown this week. Tonight Sony and Microsoft have dueling press conferences - Sony will give a sneak peek of the PlayStation 3, and Microsoft will try to undo some of the damage that they brought upon themselves with the MTV debacle.

Nintendo will not appear nor part with any secrets until tomorrow - their press bash is traditionally held on the very eve of the show. But - when the first members of the media walk towards the front steps of the convention hall tonight, there will be no doubt at all who the real star of the week will be. Link is back, and he has bad-ass written all over him. 2005 is going to be a very good year ...
