E3 2016 - Renowned games journalist Geoff Keighley (aka Doritos Pope) promises that this year's E3 will be absolutely huge with tons of surprises.




Major E3 conferences are just days away, and the excitement is absolutely electric: we're going to see an entire galaxy of new games and hardware that will push gaming into a new generation. In fact, Geoff Keighley, who will host YouTube Gaming's E3 Live showcase on Monday, June 13 for "12 hours of wall-to-wall gaming," knows the full scope of the reveals and says gamers "aren't ready for what's about to happen."




So what has Keighley seen that's made him so enthusiastic? Probably the new PS4 and Xbox consoles. Sony is expected to show off its new powerful 4K-ready PlayStation Neo console at the event, alongside a retinue of first-party exclusives like The Last Guardian, a new Norse-themed God of War 4, and possibly even The Last of Us 2.


Microsoft isn't going to be a slouch at E3 either: Redmond is expected to reveal up to four new Xbox hardware systems, including a 40% smaller Xbox One Mini that supports 4K video playback, a Chromecast-like Xbox streaming stick, and an Xbox set-top box that supports game streaming from PC or Xbox Ones. Microsoft also wants to dethrone Sony's console reign once and for all, so they've designed the powerful 4K-ready Xbox Scorpio, a console that packs 6TFlops of performance with up to 1.5x faster than the PS4K.


The Xbox Scorpio is also rumored to natively support the Oculus Rift VR headset for desktop-grade VR, and may even sport the world's first console-supported external video card enclosure.


Check below for everything we know about Sony's new PlayStation 4K (PS4 Neo) and Microsoft's new Xbox Scorpio. One thing's for sure: E3 2016 is going to be a big leap for console hardware.
