games and hardware collectively.
Trophy  

This year’s winners have been announced – and it’s
Nintendo’s 3DS handheld gaming system that walked away with the “Best of Show”
award. id Software’s “Rage” and Valve’s “Portal 2” both earned multiple awards in sub-categories.  (In order for a game to be
eligible for an award, publishers are required to give judges hands-on time
with the E3 demo. This is to ensure that games are actually playable and not
just canned video presentations.)
