The Last Guardian had an incredible reception at its re-introduction during Sony's E3 2015 press conference. A dedicated and vocal group of fans has been waiting years for this game, but the faithful are fewer than you might imagine. Director Fumito Ueda previously worked on Ico and Shadow of the Colossus, and although both games have been praised, they weren't particularly successful from a sales point.

Sony Computer Entertainment Europe president and CEO Jim Ryan spoke about this in a recent interview, stating that he has "berated" his team in the past for not doing a good enough job at promoting Ueda's games. There's still a level of uncertainty surrounding The Last Guardian's ability to sell well, but Ryan is looking to change that. Hit the jump for more!

The weekly hardware and software sales numbers for Japan are in, and the newest Rhythm Heaven game on 3DS continues to impress in an otherwise disappointing week. Rhythm Heaven: The Best+ debuted at number one last week, and it held that spot again this week with another 66,416 sales. Return to PopoloCrois and Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition, both new titles, cracked the top five, and Splatoon continues to sell well nearly a month after its release, taking the number three spot.

All of Sony's major pieces of hardware, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Vita, saw slight sales boosts this week, but overall hardware sales were still very underwhelming, with no Sony hardware cracking 15,000 units. 3DS and Wii U were the top-selling pieces of hardware, but both saw slight drops from last week.

During E3 we got a good look at Destiny's newest upcoming expansion pack, The Taken King. This new add-on brings more content than previous expansions, but at a much higher price tag. As a digital download, it costs $39.99/£39.99 (the same price as the base game in some regions), but you can also buy it in stores for $59.99/£54.99 with the base game and all DLC included as the Legendary Edition. 

Some fans are unhappy with this price model, and for various reasons. Some see the $39.99 price tag as too high, while others are upset that they bought all the previous content at full price and newcomers can pick it up in one package for just $59.99.The Taken King's creative director, Luke Smith, defended the price point in a recent interview.

This year's E3 was absolutely packed with new game reveals and announcements, as the usual five press conferences was expanded to eight. Microsoft, Sony, EA, Ubisoft, and Nintendo each held their annual presentations, newcomers Square Enix and Bethesda had their own shows, and there was even a dedicated PC Gaming Show. 

Over one hundred new video game trailers have been released, but some stood out more than others, racking up millions of views in just days. Star Wars: Battlefront and the Final Fantasy VII remake in particular are each closing in fast on 10 million views. You can check out the full list by clicking below!

E3 is the most exciting time of the year for video game fans, as impressive new games are revealed and epic trailers are released for previously announced games. Unfortunately, there's a dark side to all the hype. E3 has become an arms race, with each developer competing to put out trailers that generate the most awe, and that has led to a shift away from real gameplay footage. 

Each year we are bombarded with increasingly more cinematic trailers that contain little to no actual gameplay and don't accurately represent the final game. This is true on the E3 show floor as well, where you can wait in line for two to three hours to watch a video presentation that tells you nothing about the actual game itself. However, a trend on the E3 2015 show floor has me optimistic that the industry is changing for the better in this regard. Hit the jump for more!

The end is finally upon us, loyal Gamnesiacs: today was the fifth and final day of official E3 coverage here at Gamnesia. The show floor has been closed and the games are being packed away to continue development. In today's news, we learned a lot from Nintendo of America president Reggie FIls-Aime in interviews about Amiibo, Nintendo's E3 2015 showing, and more; we also got tons of Nintendo news from the final Treehouse Live stream of the week, and there was tons of other news from Microsoft, Sony and more, plus plenty of Gamnesia-exclusive content.

E3 2015 has officially come to a close, with the show floor closing a short while ago; however, the folks in charge of E3 are already planning for next year's expo.

According to a tweet from Geoff Keighley, E3 has been scheduled for June 14th-16th next year; the event will once again be held in Los Angeles in 2016. Next year will likely feature some pretty big announcements, like Zelda U and Nintendo's Project NX.
