Mom's Minute 6-15-2015

E3 2015 press conferences nicely make up the 152nd edition of the Mom's Minute Video Game Show as Ms. H switches gears from the usual format to cover news and announcements from this annual video game event.  Ms. H broadcasts live on her show the latter part of the Ubisoft E3 2015 press conference that was in progress and overlapped the first few minutes of the Mom's Minute Video Game Show.  She lets everyone know the show will consist almost entirely of the  E3 2015 press conferences that aired prior to her live video game show.  Once the Ubisoft E3 press conference ended, Ms. H welcomed everyone to the show.  She discusses the Oculus Rift virtual reality E3 2015 press conference that was held on June 11, 2015.  She recapped some of the highlights of this press conference and provided  details of the Oculus Rift.   In Ms. H's opinion,  the Oculus Rift presentation was repetitive at times rehashing the benefits of virtual reality video games.  When asked if she would purchase an Oculus Rift, her response was not positive.  Even though the presenter stated the headset was lightweight, Ms. H felt wearing a headset would take away from the seamless virtual reality effect of playing these type video games.  She talked about the port accessory for the headset that reminded her of a gavel.  Ms. H was not impressed with the Oculus Rift stating she would pay $29.95 for the device or even $19.95 if she was in the market for it. Games that will be available for the Oculus Rift include Eve Online and Eve Valkyrie. The Oculus Rift will use the Xbox One controller for games.  Ms. H discussed a new elite Xbox controller coming out later designed to work with Windows 10 when this software is launched. Ms. H stated the Microsoft E3 2015 press conference seemed shorter in length than Oculus Rift's probably due to the greater number of video games demonstrated during the Microsoft presentations.  News from Microsoft E3 2015 press conference included yet to be released video games including the video game Rise of the Tomb Raider that is a timed Xbox One exclusive game.   It was announced that Xbox 360 games will be backwards compatible to the Xbox One.  This means that Xbox 360 video games will be playable on the Xbox One, with games to be transferred automatically.   Currently about 100 titles will be transferred with more to be done in the future. The highlight of the EA E3 2015 press conference was the on-stage appearance of Pele from Brazil who is recognized as the greatest football player in the world.  Lively discussion followed on Ms. H's views on having pictures taken and placed in video game play.  Regarding the Ubisoft E3 2015 press conference, Ms. H lets everyone know Angela Bassett has a part in the video game Rainbow Six Siege as well as appeared on stage with the host along with musical guest Jason Derulo.  Ms. H welcomes a caller who shared video game sales from a website. She reminds everyone that is the place to be for E3 news.  Additionally, live broadcasts were at relative to the E3 2015 press conferences.  Ms. H rounds out the video game show with her special original saying to be resilient, bounce back and like the 96 year old dancer alluded to --  do not let anything get the best of you.
