PlayStation, Switch and Project Scorpio among the surprises that the Electronic Entertainment Expo
The Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), one of the biggest international events in the world of video games, began its edition this year last weekend in the city of Los Angeles.
With the presence of companies like Electronic Arts, Ubisoft, Bethesda, Nintendo and the eternal rivals PlayStation and Xbox, the fair will present new titles as well as new features in the next generation of consoles.
What is expected for this edition?
After reaching the impressive number of 60 million PlayStation 4 consoles sold worldwide, Sony comes to this E3 in a privileged position. The company brings under its signature two anticipated exclusive titles, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy and Last of Us Part II.
One of the points where Sony will have to improve is on its PSVR virtual reality platform. While this has sold over one million units and more than five million games, the company is still trying to find the kind of content that works best in this medium.
For its part, Microsoft keeps an ace up its sleeve: a new console. Currently known as Project Scorpio, it will be the most powerful on the market with 6 teraflops of graphics power, 12 Gb of memory, 1 TB of storage and support for games of real 4K resolution.
Although the console will only hit the market later this year, this E3 will be its debut.
Just a few weeks after its release, the Nintendo Switch console sold more than 2.7 million units. However, a good console is nothing without good titles. In this sense, the Switch catalog has been quite limited so far.
While Nintendo will not have an official conference at E3, it will do a presentation during the fair that will show some of the titles that will soon arrive on the platform among them, Splatoon 2.
The Japanese company will also unveil new details of Super Mario Odyssey for Switch, which is expected to see the light later this year.
In addition, Nintendo is expected to present new features for its 3DS. With more than 66 million units sold to date, this portable platform is left for a while.
