On the road to E3 there are always some big, juicy rumors that pop up that end up turning out to be true or turning out to be completely and entirely way off base. For the PS4 and Xbox One, the rumors almost all turned out to be true from the hackers/leakers who let news loose ahead of their official announcements. In this case, one leaker is saying that the Nintendo NX will get Wii U ports.
Gamers are more curious for this year's E3 conference from Bethesda than they are excited. Last year we had Fallout 4 and Dishonored 2 coming out of the woodwork. This year it's all a mystery, but Bethesda is promising that some of these new games will be playable to the public via demos.
The rumors and build-up for Sony's new PS4.5 are gaining a lot more traction and a lot more ground. It's not like the images being released every once in a while for the Nintendo NX that turn out to be fake. In this case, the latest report on the PS4.5 (or PS4K) is that it's going to be announced soon.
Sega's Sonic Boom: Fire And Ice was announced a while back... in fact it was announced during the week of E3 in June of 2015. The game was originally supposed to release for the Nintendo 3DS during the holiday season of 2015, but now it's arriving in the fall of 2016.
Unlike a handful of other big publishers, the folks at Deep Silver are still planning to have a big presence at E3 2016, recently revealing that they will make a major announcement at this year's show.
The biggest gaming event of the year is always E3, the Electronic Entertainment Expo. It's hosted by the ESA, the Entertainment Software Association. This current year has seen a number of top publishers pulling out of E3 as exhibitors, and it has opened up a possibility that a lot of gamers would potentially love.
Bethesda Software stole the show at last year's E3. Most people agreed they came away the winners (a time honored tradition amongst hardcore gamers to determine who “won” E3). Well, it appears Bethesda has plans on making a return to the stage and bringing more big surprises at this year's E3.
Electronic Arts has been a consistent staple and presence at E3 for many years on end. Whether we love or hate what they have to show, we can usually count on EA to bring a load of content to the stage each year. Well, this year they won't be attending E3 but they will be dedicating some time to showcasing their goods at the Nokia theater around the same time.
It didn't take long for gaming sites to hunker down, gear up and start rolling out comparison articles of one of the hottest topics going on right now: Crytek downgrading Ryse to run at a stable 30 frames per second on the Xbox One.
If you're steeped in Japanese gaming culture you're probably well aware of a little something-something known as Famitsu, only the most popular Japanese gaming publication around. Well, the magazine conducted a poll with its readers to see who they thought won E3, as well as what they felt the pricing was like for both the next-gen consoles.
The microphone-snatching, red-faced answers, fanboy arm flailing and spittle exchange pretty much sums up what the Angry Joe interview with Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb was all about. It's just over 10 minutes of awkward, uncomfortable question asking and question answering. Also, I'm not kidding about Angry Joe having the microphone snatched out of his hands. For real.
If you've been following along this week, you will have likely noticed that E3 2013 has been full of announcements, trailers, demos and all sorts of other wonderful gaming goodness. I still have two articles coming tomorrow featuring two of my favorite games of the show, Witcher 3 and Thief. In the meantime, however, Sony has done everyone a favor on their end and compiled a massive post highlighting their E3 coverage on the PlayStation Blog. Tuck in for a long viewing session.
If you meandered over to the Marvelous/XSEED booth at E3 this year, you would have had the opportunity to get your hands on the delightfully stylish Killer is Dead. Behind closed doors, however, Product Manager Jimmy Soga was showing off a different section of gameplay, dishing additional details for the upcoming game along the way.
All companies showed up prepared for battle and dropped some mean games on the show floor for gamers and media to oogle and fawn over...games we have showcased throughout this recap with a ton of trailers. Also, Nintendo is back in it to win it, Halo 5 was teased and there are more games coming out than this recap could possibly contain.
Earlier today we ran an article about the Xbox One games at E3 actually running on high-end PC hardware. Well, a few of Sony's first and second party developers have stepped forward to comment how Sony wasn't all about smoke and mirrors...the games were running on actual PS4 development hardware.
