E3 2016 Showcases More Than 2,300 Products

E3 2016 once again delivered as the premier place to see what’s next in video games,

[], a virtual reality Mech combat game where players
pilot giant robots from a virtual cockpit to battle with friends. This was the third
time in four years SCAD has won this prestigious competition.

E3 2016 once again demonstrated the true value of video games in the entertainment
industry, showcasing video games’ evolution through virtual and augmented reality,
mobile technology and new, more advanced consoles.
