The Friday Files: June 5, 2009

E3 was just last week, and it looks like the big three consoles all came out with their A game this year. Let’s get to it.

If you own a Nintendo Wii, do yourself a favor and download the Nintendo Channel from the Wii Shop Channel. It streams all of the Nintendo trailers through your game system. There was nothing like seeing the new Metroid for the first time on a big screen TV.


There was no new Zelda to be had at the Nintendo Keynote, but Joystiq came across this wonderful production poster that Shigeru Miyamoto unveiled at the Developer Roundtable.

Some people might say the new Castlevania Trailer looks a little bit like God of War. But let me ask you, is God of War narrated by Patrick Stewart? No, I didn’t think so.

And now for something you’re not going to find at E3. Japanese automakers decided to have a throw-down to design the automobiles of 2050. Here’s what they came up with. Check the rest of them out at Pink Tentacle.
