Apple and Sony, Epic News Today! #WWDC #E3

iOS 5

iOS 5

This was no ordinary Monday, people. History was made today. Geeks and gamers ’round the world had an e-boner all day and it started with Apple at their Worldwide Developers Conference 2011:

  • iCloud with 5 GB of storage is free for all with an Apple ID.
  • OS X Lion will be more iOS “like” and tons of new features, all for $30 coming next month.
  • Incoming iOS 5 this Fall cuts the cord on syncing & activating among other big UI updates.

Read all the details and view the keynote video at Apple.com. iTunes 10.3 should be arriving shortly.

As if that wasn’t enough, the bacon got piled on over at the Electronic Entertainment Expo 2011, or just E3, which started today. Lots of deliciousness was announced today, and here were likely the most anticipated announcements so far:

  • Battlefield 3, October 25, 2011
  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, November 8, 2011
  • Halo 4, Q4 2012
  • Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, November 2011
  • Need For Speed: The Run, November 2011
  • Far Cry 3, 2012
  • Mass Effect 3, Q1 2012
  • Minecraft, Q4 2011

These are just some of the more anticipated sequels on this, just day 1 of the expo, with 2 more days left to go. If interested, your best bet to follow what’s coming up in the next few days is to keep an eye on Joystiq’s coverage of the event.

Sony announced their NGP officially as “Vita” for $250 USD for WiFi & $300 for WiFi/3G. Also, a new 24″ 3D monitor bundle for PS3 priced at $500 USD also announced.

I’m sure tomorrow will bring even more announcements and surprises. Stay tuned.
