E3 2013 – Xbox Press Conference Recap


Armed with a bevy of game titles for both the Xbox 360 and Xbox One during this morning’s E3 Press Conference, it seems that Microsoft has heard the large scale groans about the always on internet connection and appears to have decided to still continue to release titles for both the Xbox One and Xbox 360. While it’s still unclear about backwards compatibility, at least it’s a little comforting that we will still be able to enjoy some of the newer titles while we wait to see if the Xbox One is a viable console for some that might not be able to get it day one or do not have a reliable internet connection which the console appears to require.

So, before we take a look at the game trailers, here are a few other highlights:

  • Redesigned Xbox 360
  • Two free games a month for Xbox Live Members starting with Assassin’s Creed 2 and Halo 3 starting July 2013
  • More integration with Smartglass
  • Twitch TV integration with Kinect controls
  • No more limitation on the amount of friends you can have
  • No more points, just local currency
  • Ability to share Xbox Live Accounts
  • The Xbox One will be available November 2013 for $499.
