The Best of E3!

June 17, 2016 2 min read

Video game fans flocked to Los Angeles for the biggest gaming trade fair in the world this past week. The Electronic Entertainment Expo, or E3 as it's commonly known, is the hub of the video game industry where developers introduce upcoming games, consoles & technology! 

Gathered at the LA convention center, 50,000 gamers enjoyed live music, big news and pretty awesome visuals from the likes of Sony, Samsung and Microsoft. Fans were treated not only to a fantastic showcase of new games, but also the latest & greatest in hardware too! Check out a few of our favorites from this week's 2016 showcase!

Sony PlayStation VR (virtual reality headset) 

With gamers in mind, PlayStation delivers a new world of unexpected gaming experiences through PlayStation®VR.  Play some of the most highly anticipated titles of 2016 -- like Batman, Final Fantasy and Resident Evil-- in virtual reality!

Samsung Curved Monitor

Although not quite a VR experience, Samsung Electronics is starting to offer consumers innovative ways to get "IN" the game.  Samsung’s curved gaming monitors are designed to match the natural shape of the human eye to help transform the PC gaming experience! 

Better yet, Samsung and EA are teaming up to launch a bundle deal that includes a free game with the purchase of a Samsung curved gaming monitor over the next three months! #Winning

The Xbox One Slim

If you're a fan of the existing Xbox One, a slimmer version is coming your this August! Microsoft says the white Xbox One S is 40 percent smaller than the original black Xbox One and will support 4K HD video. Other changes include moving the USB ports to the front of the console, adding a built-in infrared blaster and eliminating the port for the motion-detecting Kinect camera system.  

Our favorite improvement? We love that you'll be able to stand the Xbox One vertically with no disc issues! Can't wait to add this sleek new console & controller to our vertical gaming wall collection!
