Electronic Entertainment Expo 2012Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo kicked off E3 by showcasing the products and games customers can expect to see in the next year. Microsoft introduced its Smartglass technology, along with gameplay of the highly anticipated “Halo 4” and “Call of Duty Black Ops II”. Sony highlighted its cross-platform play with the PS3 and Vita; introduced “Wonderbook”, a connected, interactive book that lets children and families interact with literature on the PS3; and showed off new games like “The Last of Us” and “God of War Ascension”.

E3 brought many well-loved franchises back, as well as debuting potentially fantastic new ones. The question for gamers now is how much each franchise has changed, and what those differences will mean for gameplay.  For example, “Halo 4” introduces Spartan Ops, “Far Cry 3” includes a 4-player Co-Op, “Pikmin 3” features a Rock Pikmin, and “Assassin’s Creed III”, now set during the American Revolution, incorporates naval warfare.
