Gotta Watch: The best of E3

It's arguably the biggest video gaming event of the year. The Electronic Entertainment Expo, E3, started in 1995 as an annual showcase for the gaming world. Hundreds of companies, from multi-billion dollar corporations like Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft, to little-known software developers use E3 hoping it will launch them towards digital success.  This year's E3 just finished up in Los Angeles and CNN has your front-row seat. Here are some highlights you've just Gotta Watch.

From Wii to U – At the world's biggest showcase for video games, Nintendo made the biggest splash this week with the unveiling of Wii U, the next generation of its popular, motion-controlled gaming system.

'Into the Pixel' - Keep debating whether video games are art  if you wish. At E3, the world's biggest gaming expo, it's a closed question. Here, video games are definitely art - and a gallery-style exhibit aims to prove it to as many people as care to look.

5 hottest games - E3 proves that rumors of blockbuster gaming's demise are greatly exaggerated. This is supposed to be the era of social games, free games, digital downloads and apps - but the big games are still all the rage. The following five titles promise to keep thumbs happily waggling well into 2012.

'Fruit Ninja' slashes way onto Kinect - "Fruit Ninja," the simple but addictive mobile game that has lived among the top 10 iPhone apps (trailing only "Angry Birds" in popularity) since it debuted last spring is coming to Kinect, Microsoft's motion-control system for the Xbox.
