You've seen the best games of E3 2011, read all about the Wii U, and found what you'll be playing on your Sony PlayStation Vita, but the LA gaming expo has also been littered with ways to further enhance your gaming experience.
From delivering 3D gaming on a budget, to precision PC gaming, we’ve picked out five accessories you need to buy for 2011 and beyond. See below for T3's best game accessories of E3 2011
Nyko Kinect Zoom
We're not all blessed with enough living room space to swing an imaginary golf club but with this Kinect add-on you'll be able to reduce the amount of space needed to enjoy the motion-sensing controller by around 40%. The optical lenses clip over the Kinect sensor allowing you to play closer to your TV and opening up enough space for two people to play in an area normally suitable for one person.
Razer Star Wars: The Old Republic keyboard
Part of a series of peripherals designed specifically for MMO title Star Wars: The Old Republic, this gaming keyboard hosts a full colour LCD track panel with multi-touch support, adaptive tactile keys, slim key caps for shorter travel distance, the ability to record unlmited macros, and customized lighting to show your allegiance to the Galactic Republic or the Sith Empire.
Price: €199.99 (Around £177)
Sony PlayStation 3D display
In a bid to get more PS3 owners to embrace the 3D gaming revolution, Sony unveiled its PlayStation branded 24-inch 3D-ready display. The TFT LCD monitor with a full 1080p HD screen resolution connects to your console via a HDMI 1.4 cable, and will also be compatible with 3D-ready PCs and other 3D consoles. Gamers will also be able to play multiplayer gaming on the same screen with two stereoscopic images on the same screen. It is expected to ship first in the US this autumn, and we hope to see it on British shores before the end of the year.
Razer Mamba gaming mouse
For those who take their desktop gaming serriously, the 4G Dual Sensor mouse uses both optical and laser sensors to enhance tracking accuracy. Ideal for first person shooter fans, you can calibrate the Mamba to different surfaces to determine when to stop tracking as you lift the mouse. It will be available from July for PC and Mac gamers worldwide.
Price: 129.99 Euros (around £115)
Memorex motion gaming controller for PS3
Memorex is the first third party manufacturer to launch its own gaming controller compatible with the Sony Move set-up. Ideal for extended motion gaming sessions, the peripheral with a high gloss black finish has rubberized grips and concave buttons for extra comfort and blue LEDs to add a little more sleekeness to your Move frolics.
Price: $39.99 (Around £25)
