<list>[*]CSX Hands-On
IGN has unlocked their E3 report about Counter-Strike on the Xbox, offering hands-on impressions of the #1 tactical shooter with an install base of 2 million PC users. New details: CSX is using the familiar Halo controls and buying weapons is done through a simple pie menu.

<list>[*]Shots from the Show Floor
Gamers.com & GameSpy snapped photos of Counter-Strike on display</a> at Microsoft's E3 booth. You can also drool over the photos taken of booths showcasing Elite Force II. By the way, part 1 of HomeLAN Fed's booth babe gallery features a Klingon female.

Condition Zero made its annual E3 appearance for the last time.

The E3 trailer is out for Counter-Strike. Windows Media Player is required to view the video, running time is 1 minute and 13 seconds. You can check it out in high res or low res.

EF2 will be showcased at no less than three booths, so we can expect plenty of press coverage this year.
