Every E3 Press Conference in Brief Bullet Points

Published on June 18, 2015 by in E3 2015

E3_2015

Greeting B-Team Listeners:

E3 is still in full swing but for most of us at home there isn’t much to do other than watch people play games we want ourselves.  Well as a result we bring you a bunch of coverage today (including tonight’s podcast) that focuses a bit more on what matters to you at home: news.  To watch every E3 press conference will take nearly a dozen hours and then you may have to wade through commentaries, but assuming you don’t want any of that we have compiled this list of everything that was announced with simple bullet points that include the info you need like name, price, release date, etc.  No interpretation, that’s for the podcast.  At the same time we won’t omit announcements just because we didn’t think it’s important.
