The major E3 press conferences are over, and the rain of game announcements has abated. EA, Microsoft, Bethesda, Ubisoft, Sony, and Nintendo all did their thing. It’s up to us to sort through the rubble.
The PlayStation VR just got some additional content via the recently announced app launch by Jaunt. The platform will have instant access to 150 cinematic titles from the startup. The app includes videos like the award-winning animation Invasion, CBS’ JPL Mars 2020, Shaq Goes to Cuba, Zombie Purge and the Pure McCartney Experience from the former Beatle.
Microsoft and Sony have finally announced their new, more powerful console revisions. The PS4 Pro and Project Scorpio promise a significant performance bump over their current-gen counterparts, supposedly ushering in the era of 4K console gaming. Although we will see some 4K games, it’s likely that neither console has the power to pull off the higher resolution without compromise.
One of the biggest surprises during the PlayStation E3 press conference last night was the announcement of a new PS4-exclusive game starring Marvel’s ultra-popular web-slinger. The crimefighter from Queens looks a lot different, though.
Sony is currently planning a new version of the PS4 with increased graphical power and games running at 4K resolution, developer sources tell Kotaku.
Not all of the big announcements coming out of the annual E3 video game conference in Los Angeles this week deal with flashy new virtual reality oraugmented reality. In fact, one of Sony’s bigger reveals centered around good old fashioned TV.
