The Daily Hotness: E3 2013, The Abridged Version


11:59 PM on 06.13.2013



As yet another E3 winds down, we take time to reflect on what was. Consoles were shown, prices were revealed, games were announced, and sooner than we know it a new generation will be upon us. It's a good couple of months before the new hardware is out, giving each of us time to reflect on which system we'll dip into first. Unless of course you're that weird person who didn't pay attention to the show at all. Fear not, VideoGamer has your E3 hardware info covered, bringing you the finest highlights of Microsoft and Sony in two bit sized chunks. Enjoy!

Today, E3 comes to it's official end, with some final looks at games like Dead Rising 3, Super Mario 3D World, and Zelda: Windwaker HD. We take a moment to remember the life of Secret of Mana artist Hirō Isono, EA clarifies on why it went back on its online pass program, and Cliffy B doubles down on his whole 'used games and rentals are evil' philosophy. Naturally, Jim Sterling has a response.

Destructoid Originals:
Used games and 'AAA' games are incompatible? Good!
