What We’ll See At E3 And Where We’ll See It: Sony, Microsoft, Nintendo
We hope you like games, because that’s exactly what you’re going to get this year at E3. This is set to be one of the biggest expos in recent years. Why? Well let’s take a look:
With a whopping number of over 40 games from Sony to showcase over the 3 day event, we expect to be bombarded with gaming goodness. The live broadcast of the conference will start on Monday, June 10th at 5:30 PM Pacific/8:30 PM Eastern.
Then following that on Tuesday, June 11th at 12:00 PM Pacific, we’ll be graced with 3 days of games via the Playstation LiveCast show which will be host to tons of gameplay demos and developer interviews for upcoming PS4, PS3, and PS Vita games. Of the games Sony has so far confirmed are:
- Beyond: Two Souls
- inFamous: Second Son
- Killzone: Shadow Fall
- Killzone: Mercenary
- The Last of Us
- Wolfenstein: The New Order
And much more, including a new game from Sony Santa Monica (God of War series) and other studios. You can follow via the livestream on the Playstation Blog, Playstation.com, Ustream, a virtual E3 booth with a livestream in Playstation Home, Facebook, and Google Plus. You can also watch E3 live directly on your PS3 as well – just look for the icon under the XMB’s “What’s New” section.
For Nintendo, they will be broadcasting a livestream of their Nintendo E3 Direct, in which we’ll be showered with footage and interviews on a whole slew of new games on 3DS and Wii U, including a new Mario adventure game (i.e. Galaxy series, Sunshine), a new Mario Kart, Super Smash Bros., Bayonetta 2, and more. Be sure to tune into their live E3 site for the stream at 7:00 AM PT on June 11th.
For Microsoft’s part, it will host a livestream of its conference on Xbox.com, as well as natively on Xbox Live and Spike TV. Keep an eye out for it because we’re expecting a giant feast of games from the folks at Redmond. E3 is “all about the games” according to Microsoft, and we need to see a whole bunch of them on the Xbox One and 360. Expect to see Forza Motorsport 5, Quantum Break, Ryse, and a lot more, including a “historic franchise” from Rare (Killer Instinct anyone?).
Their conference is expected to begin at 9:30 AM Pacific on June 10th.
We plan on bringing you the full breakdown of games here at iGR, so stay tuned right here!
