This year shall be the year of software, or so many people say. With all three consoles at least two years into their cycles, a lot of information about the games we’ll being playing on them will come out of E3 this year. Each of the big three console makers are marking their territory and are all claiming that they’re going to kick some serious ass this year. Check out what each of them had to say in their ESA press releases. By the way, did you know GamerLimit is sending five journalists to E3 this year?
“Microsoft is gearing up for a big presence at E3 which will completely transform how people think about home entertainment,” said Mattrick. “We’re excited about the momentum that is building in the industry in anticipation of our June 1st media briefing, which will kick off E3 in blockbuster style.”
“Nintendo has been a long time attendee of E3 and it has our full support,” said Nintendo’s Reggie Fils-Aime. “E3 brings a wide variety of key audiences into contact with products from many companies, including Nintendo. It’s the place where creativity is on display, and as a ‘sneak peak’ for our entire industry it helps generate excitement for gamers around the world.”
“Sony Computer Entertainment America is looking forward to another great showing at this year’s E3 Expo,” said SCEA boss Jack Tretton. “The audience of North American-based and foreign media and key industry partners makes E3 Expo an ideal place for us to unveil the latest PlayStation news and products at our press event on June 2.”
It’s going to be a big week out in Los Angeles. We’ll be here for you with round-the-clock coverage of what is going on out there. Not only will five of ours be on the ground, but the rest of us will be filling in the blanks. We’ll be letting you know the best places to watch all of the press conferences, and we’ll be live-blogging what we can.
