Analysis from E3: Dave Lee, l.  a. 

First stop at this year's E3 was the Galen Center, a venue sometimes used for basketball, wherever Microsoft extended its portfolio for the approaching year and a trifle.



At its heart, the crowd-pleasing announcement of the Halo Master assortment - a whole compendium of the Halo series, and a "beta" of the most recent entry within the series, Halo five Guardians. It won the most important cheer within the arena, for principally longing functions.

But a replacement console cannot think about previous franchises, although they're of Halo's calibre. that is wherever Sunset Overdrive comes in - AN (almost) open-world game with a lead character that, initially look, is quite slightly irritating.

While the Xbox event was a usually loud, brash affair - it had been deliberately direct. This was all regarding games, and also the firm has started out a convincing staple for the year ahead, although it's a bit dependent on tried and tested brands.

It all points to a robust 2014 and 2015 for Xbox One. It must be if it's to claw back a number of the bottom lost to the PlayStation four.

Tellingly, there was solely a quick mention of the Kinect - a peripheral touted last year to be integral to the Xbox One expertise.



Not thus this point - solely 2 titles mentioned the Kinect directly: a terpsichore game and a difficult  music-creation game supported the previous film maker film, Fantasia.

Later we tend to get to envision what Sony must supply.
