Continuing from the momentum Sony gained from last years presentation, they went even bigger with their stage presence and the offerings they’ll be bringing to gamers later this year and into the next.

Sony brought their game(s), and offered plenty of reasons as to why a PlayStation 4 is a prime candidate for any dedicated gamer. Plenty of announcements to ogle at, so without further ado, here’s what they brought to E3!

Nintendo, being Nintendo, took a different approach to E3 yet again by providing their press conference through their Nintendo direct service. Rather than make their announcements in person and on stage, they provided all of their information in a streamlined, all access, digital event. It was quick and to the point, and full of sweet. They also live streamed plenty of gameplay and announcements after the initial press release through “Nintendo Treehouse.” Here’s what Nintendo brought to E3!
The Electronic Entertainment Expo is arguably the biggest week of the year for the entire gaming industry and this year was no exception. Our Communiqué team remains hard at work summarizing everything that was announced, revealed, and confirmed. Because of the sheer volume of content, we’re splitting the update into parts dedicated to each of the press conferences from the major publishers: Microsoft, Electronic Arts, Ubisoft, Sony, and Nintendo. Stay tuned to the blog throughout the weekend to read our recaps of E3.
This part of the update focuses on the Microsoft press conference, which included the announcement of Halo: The Master Chief Collection, gameplay previews of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Sunset Overdrive, Assassin’s Creed Unity, and more.
If gaming had a holiday it would be E3.

You can think of it like Christmas because brand new games we never even expected are regularly announced at this event to thundering applause. It is unfortunately restricted to journalists, but we get a peek behind the scenes with the massive amount of live-streams going on.
