E3 2017 News: Everything From The Press Conferences

E3 is nearly wrapped up, but there have been plenty of announcements.

88 Comments

We've reached the last day of E3, and while the announcements have died down, there was plenty that happened earlier in the week. The six major press conferences brought with them a lot of news and game reveals, from Metroid to BioWare's Anthem to Beyond Good & Evil 2.

For the first time ever, E3 was open to the public this year, but the show otherwise seems to be largely the same as in the recent past. One notable difference was that things began earlier than usual--EA already held its EA Play press conference on Saturday, while Microsoft's Xbox press conference was a day earlier than usual. It might be too late to enjoy them live, but you can still re-experience them all with our liveblogs and various recaps. You can find all of this below.

.... Hmm games of hardware which one won the day???

The Problem I have Microsoft (yes I'm talking directly to you) is that it is near the end of the console cycle at MOST 4 years from now.

So you want me to pay $500.00 dollars for an XB1X after you wanted me to pay $500 for a launch XB1 then killed the $150.00 dollar Kinect which had a few games. (Luckily I waited, yet sold it after a few friends sold theirs. Though they got an XB1S I decided to just stay with my PS4. I still have my XB360 so I'm good.) Although I'm tempted by its design and specs I just can't put faith in you because I know it will not sell well and XB-Neo or whatever you call your next gen console will be out in 2 - 3 years to compete with PS5.

So, if all the games are coming to PC and paying $500 for XB1X then XB next gen comes out in 3 years for $$$$ its easier and cheaper to just go PC for the few exclusives you have.

In terms of games Sony wins

In terms of new Hardware MS wins

Nintendo was pretty solid showed some good stuff just felt like they could of shown more with smash or the virtual console.

Come on snapdragon just release a better adreno GPU and CPU, the snapdragon 835 sucks and it's the flagship arm CPU.

No one wants a switch they want a phone with:

7000mah battery (mi max 2 has 5200)

4k screen for vr, gaming and movies

Variety of screen size performance CPU.

8 gig of mobile ram

128 gig to 256 editions

And a bloody good adrenu GPU.

It's the future not switch. Ahh curses and hexes.

@rolento25: I think having a mobile that runs out of battery in 2 hours, thus rendering the mobile phone redundant as a communications device is a ridiculous idea. But hey, who needs a phone to get hold of loved ones in case of an emergency if it's a kick arse gaming phone??!?!!

The guy has his head in the clouds...

@lorddaggeroff: "No one wants a Switch" Funny how over 3 million people in 3 months constitutes "no one"

People buy Nintendo hardware for Nintendo games. No one wants a high powered mobile phone, especially when you take into consideration the smaller screen size and the need to take a dedicated controller with you if you want a traditional gaming experience.

I also think you're forgetting people use their mobiles for things other than gaming- A battery that will give 2 hours life will be redundant for a mobile phone; If your phone is dead after 2 hours gaming, thus rendering all the other features a mobile phone offers (communicating with others being the main one) you may as well not bother. At least when my Switch dies, I know my mobile phone is still able to receive/make phone calls/texts.

Personally think you should edit your comment to read "I don't want a Switch" as you're mistaking personal opinion with general consensus.

@andyc777: Well your small minded, i enjoy my 6"4inch screen that runs games in 1080p, plays plays practically anything. Use the Xbox controller to play with vr head set on while on train, then watch the man look closely at their tablet, or pc.

Then switch from phone to laptop.

(Oh but no body wants what you want.)

Thank God for people like elon musk, to many closed apple zealots.

@lorddaggeroff: So you're essentially asking people to lug around an Xbox controller with them. Fantastic.

Love how you completely avoided the point raised about a gaming phone with such a short lifespan rendering a mobile phone being useless until its recharged.

People take their phones with them and use them throughout the 10 (est) or so hours a day they're out the house. And you seem to think they'll be happy with a decide that plays high quality games, even if it means they can't use their phone to contact people afterwards.

Terrific.

Sounds good but if nobody makes a logical input device to control games with its about as useful as a turd in a punch bowl.Additionally it would also take companies with the resources and drive to invest in making good mobile games that are on par with console gaming which equates to alot of risk as only cheap $1 or free to play scam games find success on mobile. There is an impossible mindset to break down and rebuild surrounding mobile gaming versus handheld gaming.. two differant audiences, two very diffferant mindsets. Unless of course you jest, in which case ignore my reply in its entirety.

I wonder if sony is cruel enough to go last to hit Microsoft with a ps5 reveal and become the most talked about this year.

@RJS86: Xbox One S and Xbox One X is considered the same generation. If Sony were to make a PS5 that would be a "next generation".

Looks like the dates are incorrect for GMT, the AM times put them forward a day.

I'm looking forward to learning about Scorpio. I haven't committed to Xbox this generation and would love to do so. Also, please Nintendo announce release dates for Xenoblade and Project Octopath Traveler!

I predict....Sony will win this year's E3 (as usual). It's about games! I said...it's all about the GAMES!

@Scarf0: I guess you didn't predict MS announcing 22 exclusives for Xbox?

@Guy_Brohski: hate to break the news to you, but I only counted about 7 exclusives for Microsoft (which is a vast improvement), the rest are timed exclusives or exclusive timed content. Do you honestly believe Assassin's Creed Orgins i s a Xbox exclusive? Don't get me started on their Xbox One X, because I haven't seen a single game shown at this year's E3 that can hold a candle to Horizon Zero Dawn graphically. So be humble that Microsoft is making a effort for you xbottles.....but it's not enough to really offer much competition to Sony. Don't believe me? What what happens during Sony's E3 Press Conference tonight.

PS, the Golden State Warriors are also gonna win tonight.

@Guy_Brohski: lol they peddled their dodgy marketing on you... Most of them were "console launch exclusives" which in real life grown up terms means "timed exclusive"... The only real exclusives they showed were Forza 7, Cuphead, Sea of Thieves and Crackdown 3.... But nothing is exclusive on Xbox anymore as they are all on PC....So in total NO ACTUAL XBOX ONLY EXCLUSIVES....

@magnusopus: The term is Xbox/Win10 exclusive, but I don't see why you think Xbox games coming to PC is a bad thing.

Avatar image for magnusopus

@Guy_Brohski: Never said it was a bad thing mate. But YOUR comment about 22 XBOX EXCLUSIVES is not correct as everything is coming to WIN10/PC.... To clarify: An XBOX EXCLUSIVE is something you can play only on XBOX, nowhere else... And unless we watched totally different conferences, not a single title was xbox exclusive (no PC/WIN10, no timed exclusive)

@Scarf0: I don't understand the concept of "winning" a conference. The companies all "win" by getting customers, and the customers "win" by getting solid games/hardware. I don't think anyone can really lose at E3....

@Daveof89: You don't understand the concept of winning at a conference? Ok, allow me to explain the concept: The company that offers the most excitement to potential consumers to purchase their products. There, you just got learn'D. PS, you can lose a conference by boring the crap out of potential buyers. EA is the early favorite for losing this year's E3.

@kingofgods: you must be new to the ways of Sony. On average they announce games 3 years in advance. Sometimes they announce games a whole decade in advance like Final Fantasy XV (formally known as VersusXIII), The Last Guardian, and the still unreleased Rockstar game Agent.

@Scarf0: And that's ok with you? Please, your fanboy is showing cover up... I'm sorry both consoles suck this gen. tons of remakes/remasters and mediocre exclusives. Yeah Horizon was a cool game, Uncharted was good but the same ol' shit. Glad I game mostly on PC the consoles have been boring.
