E3: Video Games Count Down to E3 2013 - Part 1




Both Microsoft and Sony can probably breathe a sigh of relief that they have both officially announced their new video gaming consoles to the public prior to E3.  Sony talked about the PS4 during their "big event" conference held February 20, 2013 while Microsoft recently revealed the Xbox One at their conference on May 21, 2013.

As E3 approaches, it's expected that video games will take the center stage; and although there is not an over-abundant of new video games, there's a lot to be said for the quality of some of the games that will be at the Expo.

To keep you in the know,  I will list some of the  video games (in no particular order) that will be showcased at E3 in a two part series .  

This list will give you a preview of  some of the new games that will be presented or re-presented at  E3, being held in Los Angeles, California June 11-13, 2013.
