Big announcements from Microsoft and Sony before E3 2015

Right now, E3 2015 is happening right now at the LA Convention Center, and if you aren’t familiar with it, it is the biggest video game conference. Unfortunately, I am not there, but the two big guns of Microsoft and Sony have already made their announcements before the show Electronic Entertainment Expo even started. I’m just going to put some of the highlights in no particular order.

Let’s get started with Sony.

Still no word on the release date for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. It should be out by March 2016.

Sony declared themselves the new home of Call of Duty, as Call of Duty III will have exclusive beta availability on the PS4 in August.

This might be long overdue, but the PlayStation 4 is getting a media player.

Final Fantasy VII getting a genuine remake on the PS4.

And now what is going on with the Xbox?

This is a big announcement, but the Xbox One will be reverse compatible with the Xbox 360. So if you have a game online and it is available, just download it on the Xbox One and start playing. Now, if you have the game on disc, just pop it in and it will download so you can play, but it still needs to be in the tray.

You can stream Xbox One games to Windows 10 computers.

Then there was a demonstration of Minecraft for the HoloLens, and now we know why Microsoft bought them.

Well, I’m sure there will be a lot more announced later about all these games.
