SXSW Interactive Gets Really Interactive

Yesterday we showed you an interview from upstairs of the Austin Convention Center at SXSW where companies are answering questions about their Internet- and film-related products. Today, thanks to the Houston Chronicle, who took this footage above, we can show you a small glimpse of what's happening on the bottom floor of the Convention Center, in the video game area -- where things are getting mighty interactive.

There you will see the new Nintendo DS game that lets you play guitar on your portable device, you can play the Wii for the first time, you can play the new Guitar Hero, or check out stuff that won't be in your living room for a long, long time.

Rarely when people say "interactive" do they really mean it, but here at SXSW they're not playing messing around.
