Report Summary:

Now in its second decade, the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) is designed to hype the latest in video games; however, this year’s E3 was different. Typically, with the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One still on the front half of their product lifecycle the conversation at E3 would be focused on games, not hardware. That was not the case at this year’s E3. For all the attention paid to games like Horizon: Zero Dawn, Battlefield 1, Gears of War 4, and The Legend of Zelda the spectacle and buzz of E3 centered on new game consoles and the arrival of virtual reality. This report reviews these announcements and examines their importance to the industry.
