Here's everything you need to know so far.
This morning the doors to the Los Angeles Convention Center were opened, and thousands of eager journalists made their way to check out the biggest and best video games that we'll be seeing in the coming months. That includes our team of four writers, who will be bringing you hands on and impressions of the latest and greatest.
In the coming days we'll have literally dozens and dozens of previews of games like Battlefield 4, Titanfall, Gran Turismo 6, Batman: Arkham Origins, Destiny, Super Mario 3D World, Mario Kart 8, FIFA 14, inFamous: Second Son, among many, many more. Before we get into that though, we've had a huge amount of news released at the pre-E3 press conferences.
Microsoft kicked things off, opting to pack their conference end-to-end with upcoming video games. Halo for Xbox One was one of the big surprise announcements along with Dead Rising 3, and Killer Instinct, while we saw impressive trailers for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Ryse: Son of Rome, Forza Motorsport 5, and Project Spark. Microsoft also revealed that the Xbox One will be available in November, for $749 NZD.
EA announced two big surprises, Star Wars: Battlefront, and Mirror's Edge 2, along with showing gameplay trailers for Titanfall and Battlefield 4. Ubisoft announced a new version of Rocksmith, while both Tom Clancy's The Division and Watch Dogs look stunning.
PlayStation's press conference rounded out the day, unveiling What the PlayStation 4 Looks Like and announcing that The PlayStation 4 Will Cost $649 NZD, and that it will Support Used Games, No Online Requirements - a clear shot across the bow at Microsoft's Xbox One. Games shown included The Order: 1886, DriveClub, Beyond: Two Souls, Destiny, inFamous: Second Son, and Kingdom Hearts III
Nintendo this morning announced a whole range of new titles, and updates on their in-development games, so check out the trailers for The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Super Smash Bros: 3DS and Wii U, Super Mario 3D World, and Mario Kart 8.
