And so the dust has settled on this year's E3 gaming convention, but the products shown and implications will run all the way to Christmas and beyond.
It is ideal timing, therefore, for the three intrepid Pocket-linters who travelled to the show in Los Angeles to give their thoughts on the winners and possible losers in the next-generation battle to come.
The Xbox One and PS4 come under close scrutiny, as does Nintendo's first-party games line-up. Was it enough to save the Wii U?
And all the rest of the top games are discussed too, including Titanfall, Destiny, FIFA 14, Gran Turismo 6, Tom Clancy's The Division and more.
Editor of news and features Rik Henderson is joined by CEO and founder of Pocket-lint Stuart Miles and contributing editor Mike Lowe.
