Nintendo just announced a whole lot of cool news at its streaming-only press conference, but one image really seemed to pop. Poor Urbosa, the badass Gerudo warrior whose spirit currently inhabits a twenty-story tall camel (it's a game thing) has been wrecked.

E3 isn't just about new games. It's also about new headsets, keyboards, mice, controllers, speakers and storage solutions. Let's take a look at some of the coolest new hardware announced during the show.

About a week ago, a mysterious website appeared that offered a glimpse of what appeared to be a new console by Atari. The site offered nothing more than a short video and appears to have been made with a free website builder. On Friday, Atari's CEO confirmed that the company is indeed building a new console but he didn't explain why anyone should care.

Every couple of Fridays, we have Jackbox games on the chill-out TV in the middle of our office. Anyone that wants to play brings their phone to tap answers in Quiplash and maybe draw one or two things in Bidiots. It's simple and fun, for an hour or maybe two. It brings people together.

Sony's PlayLink does exactly that, but with more depth -- like serious, long games like Hidden Agenda (from the team that made Until Dawn) as well as party games like Knowledge is Power and That's You! If you've got a PS4 and some friends or family or maybe strangers to play with, it's a tempting proposition.

E3 is here and that means it's wild gaming gear time! From Microsoft's latest Xbox to a tiny Atari 2600, here's the coolest stuff we saw this week.

My time with Sea of Thieves's executive producer Joe Neate and Rare's studio head Craig Duncan starts with Craig asking what my experience of the game has been so far -- what happened in the few minutes when I'd played?

I gave a quick explanation: my crew -- three of us that knew each other a little, and one complete stranger -- settled into the roles we'd chosen (for ourselves, but there was no arguing) very quickly. I took the ship's wheel and started telling everyone what to do, maybe my domineering personality coming out in the game.

We looked at the maps and riddles in our inventory, found an island with buried treasure on it, and set sail. All went well on our short journey, until we saw another ship moored nearby -- and thought, we can take them. We went in, full speed ahead and guns blazing... and then I crashed our ship and we sank.

Even though E3 has only just gotten underway, most of the biggest companies have already made their biggest announcements, and amazingly, Microsoft's offering already feels like a miss. I say "amazingly" because Microsoft was the only company to debut major hardware at the show.

Nintendo made a bunch of hopes and dreams come true today at E3. After a seemingly endless wait, they finally announced Rocket League for Switch! Oh, also Metroid Prime. They announced a new Metroid Prime.

Welcome to E3 2017: a week filled with leaks, hardware, software, silly stuff, not so silly stuff, and most importantly: games.

There's lots and lots of games being announced. So if you want to keep track of them, we'll keep this post updated with everything that comes out.

After more than a year of rumours and teases and dorky Xtreme code names, Microsoft's latest console, the Xbox One X, is finally here. It's not actually here, here, the console will go on sale November 7. But we now have all the details about this new console, which is officially the fastest console built to date.

"We've worked on this since 2012, and we finally get to talk about it... I tell people to take a step back and think about this E3: what a moment, you don't release new consoles, the most powerful console ever, that often. We're releasing significant hardware. It's Christmas for me."

Microsoft's corporate vice president of Xbox and Windows gaming, Mike Ybarra, is obviously pretty happy that he gets to talk shop about his baby, Project Scorpio, the new Xbox One X.

We got the chance to get up close and personal with the new Xbox One X. From the outside, there's precisely nothing new to excite you. But inside, if you've got a 4K TV, you should be very, very interested.
