Video Recap - EA's 2014 E3 Press Conference

The second press conference to hit E3 2014 was from EA. Last year we had the tease of Battlefront from DICE and this year we had a continuation of that tease. EA has an impressive line-up, but not much to show at this point as far as gameplay goes. Game Informer's Kimberley Wallace and Ben Reeves are the resident experts on Bioware, Star Wars, and Mirror's Edge so we got them on camera to piece together as much information as they could from EA's press conference.

Watch the video below to learn more about Dragon Age: Inquisition, Criterion's next game, and more.

Previously On E3: What Happened (And Didn’t) At Last Year’s Show

about X hours ago from

Just like an episode of Game of Thrones, E3 is packed with drama. From shocking revelations to high-stakes blunders, the convention can make or break games, systems, and companies. What happened last year? Read on for a brief refresher.Sony
In case you forgot, Sony had a pretty good press conference last year. In fact, it was as dominant a performance as I’ve seen in my 15 years of attending E3. The reception of Sony’s press conference had as much to do with the bad feeling surrounding Microsoft at the time as it did with the substance of what Sony showed. Simply put, it saw a PR opportunity and capitalized on it. That’s what you’re supposed to do. Microsoft had painted itself in a corner by the confusion around whether or not the Xbox One would require an “always on” connection and restrict the sale of used games. Sony came out and, in plain language (and a little swagger on the part of now-exited SCEA CEO Jack Tretton) told the crowd what it wanted to hear: The PlayStation 4 would not require an Internet connection to function, and there would be no restrictions on selling or sharing used games. The thunderous applause and chants of “Sony! Sony!” that sprang up in the crowd were proof it was the right strategy.
