Tech’ News Roundup: 21 Jun 2015

This is a new section where I hope to do each week where I round up some of the tech’ news updates/rumours/releases, I will keep them individually short and provide links to full articles (here or externally).

E3 News

At the beginning of this week E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo) took place. The main attraction for E3 was Fallout 4, at least from Bethesda Softworks anyway. I wrote a summary of Todd Howards showcase for Fallout 4 here, but they also announced Dishonored 3 as well.

Microsoft also announced quite a bit, they shown an example of an extremely realistic game of Minecraft on their Hololens.  They also announced  that mods install on the PC version of Fallout 4 can also be ported over to the Xbox One as well. As well as announcing backwards compatibility with Xbox 360 games.
