Companies owning each other, themselves or just weird happenings, E3 has it all.
Year in and year out, the Electronic Entertainment Expo has served as a place of memories. We remember the greatest reveals, the biggest announcements and the most shocking surprises. However, E3 has also been the site of major ownage, whether it’s one company owning another or owning itself so bad that it plays catch-up in the sales for years. Of course, E3 has had its insane and embarrassing moments as well. Join us as we relive 15 of these joyous, at times disturbing, memories.
E3 2013 – PS4 Priced Lower Than Xbox One
E3 2013 was not an…ideal time for Microsoft. Coming off of the Xbox One reveal in May, which had more sports and entertainment references than actual games, Microsoft further capsized at the expo. Always online, no used game support, mandatory Kinect and of course, the $500 price tag sent many in a tizzy. Cue Sony to announce in its presser that not only would the PS4 be priced $100 lower but also support used games and no online requirements.
