E3 is here. Almost. Well, just a day before E3, we have 4 big press conferences. Microsoft, EA, Ubisoft and Sony are going to present games and technologies to take us into the next generation of gaming. SpikeTV is the exclusive broadcasting partner of E3, with streams on GameTrailers as well. The internet is abuzz as all eyes are on E3, with live-blogs on most major tech news outlets. Speaking of major tech news outlets, the staff here at The NLSC is keeping a close eye on things. Discussion on Day 0 of E3 2013 has begun in the Forum, and we’ll be doing a series of daily hour-long podcasts with our reactions to each day and all news that come out of them. With EA promoting its upcoming showcase of NBA Live 14 and tweets from 2K Sports about more information about NBA 2K14 coming during E3, the whole community should be on the look-out.
First to hold a Press Conference was Microsoft. A packed hall was matched by a huge viewership on the live-stream. Microsoft hasn’t won a lot of people over with a lot of its choices around the Xbox One, and there’s certain matters that are still unclear around the console. However, its press conference today was not about the controversy around used games or the requirement to connect once a day; it was all about the games.
