Expo launches trailers of snazzy new games

New blockbuster game trailers hit E3 expo site.

With the E3 annual gaming conference bearing down upon us, the official site is already spoiling us with tasty looking trailers from this year's Christmas wishlist.

The first big-name titles to break cover so far include Killzone 3, a further call to arms against the futuristic space Nazis of Killzone 2; Crysis 2, the sequel to processor-crippling 2007 PC shooter; Fallout: New Vegas, a sin city-set follow up to Bethesda's sprawling post-apocalyptic Fallout 3; and Dead Space 2, (sequel to T3 fave Dead Space) a space-age survival horror starring a mining engineer who must hack his way through an army of undead using nowt but his trusty power tools.

Other franchises getting an outing include Mega Drive beat-em-up Mortal Kombat, mobster sim Mafia, racing car stalwart Gran Turismo and ubiquitous house party fave Rock Band.
