The big names in the video games business are gearing up to do battle in Los Angeles at one of the most spectacular trade shows in the world.
Tens of thousands of people are expected to descend on the city for the Electronic Entertainment Expo, E3, which runs from 18 to 20 May.
This year Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo are all due to reveal details about the next wave of video game consoles.
The machines are expected to hit the shops over the next year and a half.
