June was a big month for handheld gaming. At E3, Nintendo unveiled its visionary 3DS – the successor to the DS that uses a cool glasses-free 3D display. Sony also used E3 to showcase several games that should stave off PSP detractors claiming the handheld has entered its twilight phase. Sony and Nintendo seem ready to battle each other, but what about the handheld gaming rig that nobody expected to explode: the iPhone?
June was not only the debut of the 3DS, but also the launch of the iPhone 4, an improvement over the original iPhone in every way from the HD-esque Retina display to the inclusion of a gyroscope for precision motion controls.
