Monday was a big day in the video game industry as both Microsoft and Sony took the stage at the E3 expo to showcase their new gaming systems.

Microsoft was first to reveal new details about Xbox One, the upcoming successor to their Xbox 360 platform. After announcing dozens of games for the Xbox One, Microsoft announced the new system will be released in November at a price of $499.

Later in the evening Sony took the stage, taking the attention back from its competitor. Unlike the Xbox, Sony’s next generation console, the Playstation 4, will be able to play used games and will not require an online connection. The PS4 will cost gamers $399 when it’s released this holiday season.

An old favorite showcased some of its latest tech as well. Having released its latest console, the Wii U, last year, Nintendo held a more subdued event than Sony or Microsoft. Instead, they hosted a private event where media could get their hands on the latest games.

YNN’s Develon Douglas is at the video game expo and called in to discuss what he’s seen so far. Tweet any questions to him @YNNAustin.
