It’s E3 time everyone and we here at myvideogamenews couldn’t be more excited. This time of year is a gamers Christmas and this June will be no different. While the big 3 no doubt have some nice surprises for gamers everywhere, they all want to walk out E3 as the “victor”. Nintendo is getting ready to make a huge statement on why their Wii U console is still relevant, PS4 is going to showcase some amazing-looking titles and XBOX One is gearing up for a another hardware release (the kinect-less XBOX One) to directly compete with PS4 at $399. Halo 5, Uncharted 4 and the new Legend of Zelda for Wii U are all set to make their presence known and while one of these companies may very well “win” E3, I think the gamers are going to come out as the clear cut winners.
Gamers love games. We chose this as our favorite form of entertainment and when companies like Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo try and wow us with their new video games and home consoles, ultimately it is us, the gamers, who will come out the victors of E3 2014. It’s always fun to “root” for our favorite company and there is nothing wrong with that; but it’s shows like E3 that bring out the best in video game developers and give us a glimpse into the future of video games. We should all sit back, relax and enjoy the show this year in hopes to see some great and interesting titles. Regardless of platform, gamers should make the decision for themselves on what looks good and what games are going to be a must-have for them this year and erase the “console war” lines that we have all become accustomed to drawing.
E3 2014 is going to be a big year for gamers. Nintendo needs to prove that the Wii U is a relevant console and needs to make a big splash at this years show. Sony needs to show all of the 7+ million PS4 owners that their machine is the best thing since the PS2 and Microsoft needs to woe back its following showcasing some amazing XBOX experiences. This year is going to be all about the games and we, as gamers, are going to walk away as the winners of this year’s show.
