At last week’s E3, video game developers hyped upcoming titles featuring super-soldiers, assassins, bank robbers and secret agents. But, they were all men.
E3 is traditionally the place where video game publishers reveal their biggest and boldest creations. That has changed in recent years. But the event still offers plenty of surprises.
Nintendo is taking a cue from “Skylanders” and “Disney Infinity” by introducing a toy figure line that will work in tandem with its video games for the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS.
Sony announced on Monday that it is bringing new installments of the popular video game franchises “Uncharted” and “LittleBigPlanet” to the PlayStation 4.
Microsoft focused on hyping titles coming to its Xbox One console during its presentation Monday ahead of the E3, the video game industry’s annual trade show.
With the launches of the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Wii U all in the past, the spotlight at this week’s E3 in Los Angeles is expected to shift back to video game software.
The upcoming console’s cloud computing capabilities were demonstrated by fleshing out dense environments in third-person open-world games like the zombie-fighting sequel “Dead Rising 3″.
Microsoft confirmed that there will be no new Xbox in the next year. “For us, 2012 is all about Xbox 360,” said company spokesman Frank Shaw.
