Quick News: It only seems like a few hours since E3 2006 started, but just a few minutes ago the show closed its doors until next year. But that doesn't mean we're about to stop the E3 goodness. Our brilliant team in LA will be working their little socks off to bring you loads more hands on impressions and we've also got some rather cool E3 video content in the pipeline. Stay tuned to Cubed3 as our E3 2006 coverage continues over the coming days.

I see all these people insulting the Nintendo corporation because of the lack of mature content. Yet there is something about Nintendo (at least their games) that strikes a certain unadulterated feeling of joy!!!  Pokemon Y - 1048-9263-5562

Well, over for another yearSmilie I think a lot of people would agree with me in saying that this was the best E3 ever! I would like to take this chance to thank everyone on the C3 team jb, Spydarlee, Blade, Hound, Mason,Jesusraz, Nin10do, HazukiSan and anyone else I missed. Excellent work guys! [/mod arse kissing]Smilie But you guys really did make this a good one.

Aah what an E3 it has been, but what happened to Miyamotos new IP?

I personally want to thank the Cubed3 team for bringing us both Nintendo and even Sony Press conference highlights. This is definately one of the best games sites in the World

Blade2t3, go to www. e3insider.com and download the E3 player. Or if you sign up (for free) with Gamestrailers you can download the conference in DVD quality. They even have their own hands on Nintendo booth tour video which is in high quality and shows the graphics of every game (particularly Metroid

May the GameBoy rest in peace....

it was a great E3 from Nintendo's point of view, a bit mediocre from Microsoft and Sony though.

I definetly agree it was the best E3 ever! Nintendo's at its best agian, Microsoft have shown cool camera and HD add on, PS3 have copied and the size of the console is bigger the the empire state but sony was the only rubbish thing at E3 and Nintendo was the best which makes a change.

Thanks for the complimentary comments about our coverage guys, much appreciated. Smilie

(I'm ace at taking credit for things Smilie)

It's been a brilliant E3 this year, thoroughly enjoyed it. Some brilliant announcements coming out of Nintendo, some of which still haven't quite sunk in they're that good. Smilie

Keep yourselves locked to C3 for more exclusive E3 content over the next few days though

Yeah, thanks for the compliments. It was insane but when you see how well we did... well it makes it all worthwhile.

It was a SUPURB E3. Ninty actually exceeded my most hopeful of expectations (no hyperbole here). Everything was done better than I would've expected or asked. I can hardly make any suggestions to improve each of the killer apps (the killer apps had good graphics). I now know revolution will be great, and I found a game to look forward to more than TP, SSBB! Nintendo did everything right and even surprised with one or two new gamecube games. Can't wait for Wii.

It is sad news for such a tremendous annual event and in its existence this has been the most exciting. Despite keeping my eyes glued on all three competitors, it was a clear run that Nintendo stole the show, actually it would be more appropriate to say that Nintendo deserved this show. This has been a brilliant E3.

Cheers guys. Seemed like the best C3 E3 ever to me.

As for Miyamoto's new IP, it seems to be Wii Sports, and that orchestra game too. However, there's a rumour he had a cooking game behind the scenes as well. I still find it VERY strange that nobody's filmed or done a hands on of the orchestra game to date so far...

Clicky Mikey

Anyway, yeah. A terrific E3 all round and the buzz that the Wii has generated has been superb. Case in point, look at the most popular vids from E3 on Gamespot.

Click me!

SSBB above Halo 3. That's the kind of popularity E3 has generated for Wii... bodes well.

Yup this was my first time with cubed at e3 and I had such a great time. Your coverage was excellent and I just really enjoyed arguing in the forums. Smilie

Really a fantastic job and I won't forget to recommend this site to all my friends..
(Makes it all worthwhile doesn't it?) Smilie

Dude yuor totally awesome. And i won't be killing you anytime soon.

Indeed, GameTrailers have uploaded their 'best of E3' video, lots of Wii action, specificaly Smash Bros!

They've also got Reggie in there saying something about 'welcome to the new era of games' - nothing like that from other developers. Smilie

Wow a great E3 shame it has to come to a close, Yeah C3 did a fantasic job uploading trailers and keeping up with the news great job.

This has been a great E3 and I'm still catching up! I've been a little busier than usual and it's been during the most exciting few days on the internet Smilie

Cubed 3 has done a great job this year as well!

I feel like I have dial =-up again too! That's becuase I'm downloading 7 e3 trailers and videos at once though Smilie

Well done to everyone at Cubed3, another E3, another job well done Smilie This year's has definately been the best for me, so much has happened, and I haven't been this psyched up about games since I was 10.

Roll on Wii! Smilie
