Motion control may have dominated the headlines, but the number of games making an appearance or a debut at E3 2009 is nothing to scoff at. Big-time exclusives first shown included Nintendo/Team Ninja collaboration Metroid: Other M, New Super Mario Bros Wii, Golden Sun DS, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, Left 4 Dead 2, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Heavy Rain, MAG, Crackdown 2, Mario and Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story, Alan Wake, Scribblenauts, ModNation Racers, and the Last Guardian. All of those names, and we haven't even touched the multiplatform games.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 led the third-party charge, but Assassin's Creed II, The Beatles Rock Band, Metal Gear Solid: Rising, Mass Effect 2, Bayonetta, Homefront, and Splinter Cell: Conviction also impressed. Oh, and Sony also announced a digital-only complement to the PSP called the PSP Go, but it's best not to think about that any more than you have to.
