Wow, what a day. Both Microsoft and Sony showed off some amazing games today at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), including the Xbox One exclusive Project Spark, which is one of the many titles that I can’t wait to play. (Here’s my coverage.)
First, this is what you need to know about the two upcoming home consoles: the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4.
While the Xbox One will cost a whopping $500 and restrict how you play and share your games (with required periodic Internet check-ins and possible used game fees), the PlayStation 4 will sell for $100 less. That’s $400. And Sony won’t impose confusing policies. There are no fees or limitations. (We also finally know what it looks like.)
Click here to catch up with all of GamesBeat’s coverage of the event today — especially if you want to see all of the new game footage and reveals. There were some very good ones. Final Fantasy Versus XIII is now Final Fantasy XV, Insomniac’s Sunset Overdrive looks like a blast to play, Bungie’s Destiny seems all-around amazing, Kingdom Hearts 3 and Mirror’s Edge 2 are actually happening, The Crew is an incredibly open-world and boundary-less driving game, and so much more. Including THE PHANTOM PAIN, oh my god.
What are you most excited about?
Goodnight, everyone. And cheers to the future.
