E3 Roundup: The Best News From Day 2

LOS ANGELES (TheStreet) -- Following a successful soft launch on Monday with an impressive presentation from Sony (SNE), the 2014 Electronic Entertainment Expo on Tuesday was a resounding success, as thousands of video game enthusiasts packed the Los Angeles Convention Center for the official kick off of E3.

Despite the hot and humid weather, the major gaming companies, everyone from Electronic Arts (EA - Get Report) to Ubisoft to Activision (ATVI - Get Report) to Sega, unveiled their best and brightest products for the coming year, showing them off in impressive style. Though E3 has largely centered around what titles are coming out, that hasn't stopped the major console producers -- Microsoft (MSFT) and Sony -- from occupying multi-level spaces with nearly all their newest offerings up for a tryout by users.

No stranger to E3, EA brought its powerhouse sports gaming division, EA Sports, to Los Angeles to show off its 2015 lineup. The list includes titles from FIFA, NHL series, and the crown jewel of its new games, EA Sports UFC. ​

The game, touted as one of the best combat sports games of all time, is set to take EA Sports to the next level with its user experience and custom modes of game play. Developed in conjuction with the Ultimate Fighting Championship, the game is painstakingly detailed and realistic. Fighters were brought in to capture movements and styles while other details of the combat sports (including the much debated violence) create an almost pay-per-view feel in your console.

While much of this year's E3 highlighted the hardware of the current age, the biggest story is the immense attention paid to actual game content, story and user experience.
