The last Nintendo DS I had was the DSi Lite which I loved using but sold it to get the 3DS on release date. When I went to purchase the 3DS I saw the glossy and overall clunky design and was torn so I decided to wait until Nintendo released something better and it is finally here. Today we got our hands on the new Nintendo 3DS XL and it is the best of both worlds. The device combines the design aspects of both the DSi XL and 3DS and I am enjoying it so far even though I sold the collection of games I had for my DSi Lite. Check out our unboxing video below after the break:

Last night at E3 there were two games that really stole the show. Sony showed off some gameplay of ‘The Last Of Us’ for PS3 and it caused a lot of buzz because of the great post-apocalyptic visuals. There was also a gameplay video of ‘Watch Dogs’ by Ubisoft which showed off next-gen-level graphics. ‘Watch Dogs’ revolves around the premise of the ctOS, a digital network that forms the basis of an internal war for information. There was no information on what platforms’Watch Dogs’ will be released on or when we can expect it to hit the shelves. Both games look great and wether you like one game more than the other is just a matter of preference but keep in mind that ‘The Last Of Us’ is a PS3 exclusive while Ubisoft has yet to announce what platforms ‘Watch Dogs’ will be coming for. Check out the gameplay trailers for both after the break.
At E3 Microsoft announced Xbox SmartGlass, which is sort of their approach to what Nintendo is doing with the Wii U. SmartGlass is an app for tablets and mobile devices that will let users interact and view different content from the videos and games on their console. The app serves as a remote control which lets users to start video content on one SmartGlass device, and seamlessly pick it up on another. The most important feature is how SmartGlass will serve as a secondary screen which will provide additional content related to whatever video or game is playing on the Xbox 360. Microsoft demonstrated the app with a Halo 4 concept which allows players to view their stats, get notified of different waypoints, and initiate multiplayer gaming sessions from the app. It also looks like Microsoft will make the app available for Windows Phone devices as well as iOS and Android. Although, the extended game functionality was specifically noted as being for Windows 8 tablets and Windows Phone devices. No availability date has been given for the app yet.
