E3 2015

It started with Bethesda.

Doom reboot looks good, taking some queus from Dishonored...

I wonder if a new Metroid will finally be revealed?

Bethesda won already with Fallout 4. This looks awesome...



Oh yeah, Doom looks pretty sick too.

Re: E3 2015

Nintendo kicked things off yesterday with some new Smash Bros characters as DLC: Lucas from Mother 3 (previously announced, was also in Brawl), Roy from Fire Emblem (was last in Melee), and Ryu from Street Fighter. Those all became available immediately.

Then they had the Nintendo World Championships in the afternoon, and that was pretty entertaining.

They also revealed (and immediately released on the Wii U virtual console) Earthbound Beginnings (Mother 1) which was never released in North America until yesterday.

Re: E3 2015

I'll be following E3 Coverage (when I can) on PS4 Live Video.

And SPCTRE, that gif animation a few posts above was a gut-buster!

Re: E3 2015

Backward compatibility coming to Xbox One this holiday season!

Only 100 compatible games at first, more coming in the future.

This goes for both digitally owned games and disc owned gamed. Download is required, even for disc owned games. For games you have on disc you obviously have to have the disc inserted each time you want to play the game.

You can still use XB1 features on them such as screenshot, game streaming, etc.

You can purchase 360 games from the store, or download free ones you own on disc.

Hmmm.... now that's cool. Did I understand you correctly? If you already have the game on disc, you can download it for use on Xbox One for free?

That may slightly change my mind about getting an Xbox One, where before I was vehemently opposed to the idea.

Right now, PS Now is a system on PS4 where you can rent streaming PS3 titles. They're at about 300+ titles as of this post. I haven't used it yet, but I do have to say, the Xbox One plan does sound intriguing.

Correct! That also goes for games you downloaded from the Xbox store. Only the compatible ones, of course.
