Microsoft and Sony try to grab gamers’ attention at E3 events

With the 2015 Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) kicking off in Los Angeles this week, bigwig videogame-console makers Microsoft and Sony tried to attract gamers’ attention by announcing blockbuster games for their respective Xbox One and PlayStation 4 (PS4) consoles.

At their glitzy media events staged at the E3 show, both Microsoft and Sony unveiled dizzying action games and drew attention to exclusive content.

Grabbing the spotlight on Monday, Microsoft said in a notable announcement that it is bringing “backward compatibility” for its Xbox One console with its predecessor, Xbox 360. As a result of the move, Xbox One gamers will also be able to play games made for the previous-generation Xbox 360 console.

In addition to announcing Xbox One’s backward compatibility with Xbox 360 games, Microsoft also showed E3 attendees the clips of some forthcoming games including ‘Halo 5: Guardians;’ ‘Rise of the Tomb Raider;’ and ‘Gears of War.’

Sony, meanwhile, tried to hog the spotlight at the E3 show by announcing the latest titles for its PS4 consoles. As per the company’s announcement, the games coming to PS4 include ‘The Last Guardian’ and ‘Horizon: Zero Dawn.’

Moreover, Sony also told its fans that the company’s exclusivity deal with Activision would enable PS4 owners to be the first gamers to play the upcoming ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops III’ game this summer.
