At the first day of the 2015 Electronic Entertainment Expo, Microsoft laid out all the upcoming games for the Xbox One in a bid to get more people to buy more of the console. Sony, however, ended the first day of the E3 by doing the same.

Sony's Playstation 4 has outsold Microsoft's Xbox One by almost two units to one, and as such is more willing to take risks in its video game lineup.

Perhaps the largest crowd pleaser at Sony's portion of the first day of E3 was the unveiling of The Last Guardian, which has been a much-delayed project by Japanese game developer Team ICO.

The Last Guardian was supposed to be the follow-up title to Shadow of the Colossus for the Playstation 3, but it took almost a decade before it was unveiled at this year's E3 and now for the Playstation 4.

"You don't know how long I have waited for this moment," said Sony Computer Entertainment worldwide studios president Shuhei Yoshida.

Another game that was revealed was entitled Dreams, which was described by Media Molecule, its developer, as a tool to allow users to reconstruct the dreams that they have.

A trailer for the much-awaited remake of the massively popular and cult classic Final Fantasy VII was also shown, with Square Enix finally giving in to the demands of fans that have long begged for an update to the title with modernized graphics.

Details of the title are still scarce, but the fact is that the remake is actually happening but with no release date revealed yet.

Sony also went through a presentation for Project Morpheus, which is the name for the company's virtual reality headset. There was no onstage demo for the device, unlike Microsoft which used its HoloLens augmented reality headset to play a version of Minecraft. Project Morpheus will not be released until the first half of 2016.

Sony ended the session with a demonstration of Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, which featured the charismatic treasure hunter Nathan Drake. The title is an exclusive to the Playstation 4, but it will not be released until next year.

The exciting list of games presented by both Microsoft and Sony will definitely keep fans of the Xbox One and Playstation 4 on the edge of their seats in anticipation.
