E3 News



Since their PS4 reveal went so well, all eyes were on Sony to deliver to the utmost of their ability with their E3 conference. And, to the vast majority of fans, they did. Sony focused on every aspect of PlayStation that they could offer their fans, from existing PS3 owners, to PS Vita owners, to potential PS4 owners. They even finally revealed what their new console actually looks like.

Sony has worked hard to put together what would make the perfect entertainment bundle, offering original programming and PlayStation Network exclusives for the PS4, along with a wide range of diverse and innovative games both exclusive and non-exclusive to the PS4. Sony is one of the biggest entertainment companies in the world, and intends to have all that sit under the one roof with the PlayStation 4.

Xbox One

Since Microsoft’s E3 Conference, it’s become clear that the Xbox One is a console that demands attention. With a wide range of exclusive games, alongside social media elements such as Twitch integration, the Xbox One is an entertainment system through and through. This innovative console is designed to fit around and enhance the fast-paced lives we lead with intelligent, voice-powered activation features, with the combination of next-generation games boasting stunning graphics and immersive gameplay. Boasting three operating systems, the Xbox One can offer a gamer a truly interactive experience¬†

Metal Gear Solid V – Phantom Pain

Developed by Kojima Productions and published by Konami, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is the tenth main entry in the iconic Metal Gear Solid series, and is coming soon to both current and next-generation consoles. The first Metal Gear game to employ an open world structure, The Phantom Pain still follows traditional MGS gameplay with its action and adventure style, combined with stealth elements.

Final Fantasy XV

Previously known as Final Fantasy Versus XIII, Square Enix announced today at Sony’s E3 conference reveal that the game will be rebranded as Final Fantasy XV. At the moment limited to Sony’s PlayStation 4 console, the title was originally announced seven years ago in 2006, and this is its first mention since then.
Final Fantasy XV features the iconic Final Fantasy action role playing style of gameplay, with the inclusion of a customisable battle system, large roaming environments, and more freedom for players to play how they want to, for a more realistic, believable, and immersive experience

Tom Clancy’s The Division

Ubisoft earlier announced Tom Clancy’s The Division, brought to you by Massive Entertainment, which asks you “What will it take to save what remains?”. This brand new open-world third-person shooter combines RPG elements for unique gameplay, and is coming soon to both Microsoft’s and Sony’s next-generation consoles: the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4.


Given the company’s success, everyone always expects big things from Ubisoft. With some amazing franchises under their belt such as the Assassin’s Creed series, along with some much more recent big name acquisitions such as South Park: The Stick of Truth, all eyes were glued to Ubisoft’s E3 conference to see what the company had in store for itself in terms of next-generation gaming.


Whether you’re pro-Xbox One or not, those who watched Microsoft’s E3 conference can’t deny that Microsoft pulled out all the stops to show that they’re serious about games. From honouring their Xbox Live Gold members with free downloadable games each month, to treating their existing Xbox 360 owners to new and exclusive games, and then Xbox One exclusive games to boot, those who are Team Microsoft will not be getting a raw deal.¬†
