What is E3?

Since 1995, E3 has been an annual trade show event for the video game industry. It’s the largest and most important video game event of the year! E3 is where developers, publishers, hardware and accessory manufacturers from around the world unveil their latest games, accessories and hardware for all to see.

During E3 you can expect press conferences, new game announcements, brand new gameplay trailers and release dates for many of your favourite upcoming games from some of the biggest names in the video game industry. And, E3 is always filled with tons of exciting and unexpected surprises. You’ll see exciting news and announcements from Nintendo, Xbox, Capcom, Konami, Ubisoft, Take-Two Interactive, Warner Bros. Games, Koch Media and many more!

What was E3 in the past and what will the event look like this year?

Previously, E3 was an industry only event. However, in 2017 the show was opened to the public to attend. Quite often, the show floor was packed with attendees lining up to get a sneak peak and chance to play upcoming games. Due to the global pandemic and growing concern for public health measures, E3 2020 was cancelled.

However, E3 2021 has been reimagined and is an all-virtual event that now engages video game fans from all over the globe. This more inclusive event allows for even more people to participate in the glitz and glamour for absolutely free. As always, we will have a dedicated team to report on all the latest breaking news and information from E3 on the Best Buy Blog.

Cloud gaming on mobile at E3

Traditionally, E3 hasn’t been about mobile gaming—though that is quickly changing. With the increased interest in cloud gaming on platforms such as Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and Google Stadia, accessories and games are being announced all the time. And, at E3 2021, we can expect to see even more mobile accessories and cloud games announced!

Pre-order games and new game releases

E3 is an exciting time for gamers and you can pre-order all your favourite games announced at the show from Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo, Capcom, Warner Bros. Games and more right here at Best Buy. By securing your pre-order, you’ll have the satisfaction knowing that you are guaranteed a launch copy of your favourite game.
