Turn out the lights, the party’s over; in a flurry of trailers, demos, and promotional announcements another E3 has come and gone. Amidst the sheer flood of new juicy details on some of our favorite franchises, E3 has also become the annual B.O.T.B.T. (Battle Of The Big Three). Each year, Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft take the stage for a 60-minute boast fest and show off several new games and features in an effort to get the gaming community salivating for what’s on the horizon.
This year, Microsoft stepped up to the podium first to set the bar for their big competitors. With Kinect outselling Playstation Move and the Wii sales beginning to show habitual decline over the past several months, Microsoft knew this was their time to shine
but left a lot to be desired when all was said and done. Here’s the highlights:
you know, in a gory, chainsaw-on-a-machine-gun kind of way. The introduction of Mech Suits brings destruction to an all new high, and the scale of the battles is beyond madness. I used to think M.A.G. was chaotic, but the videos alone are enough evidence to prove that Marcus’ final chapter is going to be a doozie.
These were certainly not the only items touched upon during the conference. IGN did a solid job covering almost every angle of E3, so feel free to jump on over to their website to find out about Minecraft coming to the 360, Live TV streaming, Kinect Star Wars, Mass Effect 3, Modern Warfare 3, and plenty others.
Next up, Sony takes the stage!
