Microsoft E3 2015 Media Briefing impressions - "they've finally convinced me to buy an Xbox One"

The Microsoft E3 press conference had a lot to prove. Following Bethesda but kicking off the main day of press conferences, they were stuck between a rock and hard place, yet also had a some massive open goals to score. As expected, they went in hard with 90 minutes of games, footage, killer features and reveals.

In short, they smashed it.

The three of us have picked over the event to present you with three different opinions about where Microsoft succeeded and failed in regards to the Xbox One, Windows 10 and the all-important games.

Microsoft E3 2015 Media Briefing impressions - "they've finally convinced me to buy an Xbox One"

Wow. Without a shadow of a doubt, that was the most impressive press conference that Microsoft has thrown in years. It packed a huge amount of games, reveals and massive features into a breathtaking ninety minutes.

Bethesda E3 Showcase: Roundtable Impressions | "Nothing will beat that this year"

So, that just happened. Bethesda just wrapped things up at their first ever E3 showcase and frankly, we're stunned. Fallout 4 is coming THIS YEAR on November 10th. The lengthy collection of demos went into detail on new elements for the series and Carl and myself have quite simply been rocked and are fully wired despite it ending well after 4am UK time. There was also a strong showing from the likes of Doom and Battlecry. Oh, and Dishonored II was announced. Fallout 4 was that impressive, that new Dishonored II is a footnote in this paragraph. Be sure to come back over the next few days as we're covering all of the pressers and will be bringing you the latest news, trailers, features and opinions on all the hottest games at E3 2015. For now, take a look at our roundtable impressions piece.

Bethesda E3 Showcase: Roundtable Impressions | "Nothing will beat that this year"

Now I know we have all joked about Bethesda – or more specifically Fallout – winning E3, but if I’m honest here I really do think they’ve set the bar so high that it will be difficult for anyone else to come close.

Street Fighter V is coming....

Capcom just dropped the biggest hint yet that Street Fighter V is incoming. They're currently exhibiting and pushing merchandise over at Pax East in Boston and slipped this cheeky paragraph into the bottom of their Capcom Unity post, hinting that the hugely anticipated title will be release in Spring 2016.

“Everyone is fired up for Street Fighter 5 coming to the PS4 and PC next Spring. Until then, you can sport the official SF5 key art T-shirt, which features Ryu in a heroic pose, for $25.”

If you can't wait that long and want to pick up some limited edition merchandise, jump over to the Capcom Store and take a look

Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu already responded to some fan complaints that SF5 previews looked less than slick, stating that the graphics are continuing to evolve and develop and the finished product will be perfect. Check out the first live match from 2014's Capcom cup and see what you think.
