Edinburgh is recovering in hospital after exploratory surgery. Many

:00:03.:00:06.

members of the Royal surgery have been by his side.

:00:06.:00:11.

Now it is time for Click. Do you think playing video games as Meiji

:00:11.:00:21.
:00:21.:00:37.

more aggressive as a person? -- has Welcome to Click. Welcome to Los

:00:37.:00:41.

Angeles, warm to the world's biggest video games show. It is

:00:41.:00:47.

going to be a monster this year, you can count on that. We have the

:00:47.:00:51.

XBox One Andy PlayStation 4, two consoles bowled slogging it out at

:00:51.:00:59.

S3. It is time to get all the explosive details on the two next-

:00:59.:01:03.

generation games machines that want to take over your living room.

:01:03.:01:07.

Which one made the biggest bank here at the show? Which you games

:01:07.:01:12.

are about to set them alight with high-definition mayhem. We bring

:01:12.:01:17.

you the big announcements from Apple's big event in San Francisco.

:01:17.:01:24.

And, a safe place to keep your important files in Webscape. So,

:01:24.:01:31.

here we are, in the middle of S3. This is the south wall of the LA

:01:31.:01:36.

Convention Centre. All around, people are cloying to get a look at

:01:36.:01:40.

everything that is being announced that the show. The two biggest

:01:40.:01:44.

thing I these guys. Look, they have put them right next door to each

:01:44.:01:49.

other. Both companies firing their opening salvoes in exactly the same

:01:49.:01:59.
:01:59.:01:59.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 44 seconds

:01:59.:02:43.

Ladies and gentlemen welcome to the console wars. A little bit much you

:02:43.:02:48.

think? The Los Angeles Convention Centre

:02:48.:02:51.

is the battleground for an epic confrontation between Sony with its

:02:51.:03:00.

new Playstation 4 and Microsoft with the Xbox One. There is also a

:03:00.:03:03.

third faction in this battle for gaming supremacy, Nintendo with its

:03:03.:03:07.

Wii U, which is currently being outsold by the Xbox 360, the PS3

:03:07.:03:13.

and the old Wii. Which clearly isn't good news for the house of

:03:13.:03:23.
:03:23.:03:26.

Mario and Zelda. Nintendo's hasn't bothered with its usual flashy E3

:03:26.:03:28.

press conference, instead leaving press event preening to Microsoft

:03:28.:03:32.

and Sony, who, after all, have brand new consoles to show off. And

:03:32.:03:35.

first out of the gate was Microsoft. At its launch event last month,

:03:36.:03:38.

Microsoft waxed lyrical about the Xbox One's credentials as a

:03:38.:03:44.

multimedia device. But here at E3, far more attention was paid to

:03:44.:03:47.

slaying barbarians in a kind of Saving Centurion Ryan manner in

:03:47.:03:50.

third person actioner Ryse:Son of Rome, and engaging in martial arts

:03:50.:03:53.

mayhem with rebooted blast from the past Killer Instinct, and of course

:03:53.:04:01.

shooting lots and lots of guns in first person shooter Battle field 4.

:04:01.:04:08.

Games and more games was the order of the day. And driving franchise

:04:08.:04:11.

Forza rumbles on with this fifth instalment, adding cloud computing

:04:11.:04:14.

to its racing repertoire. The game can learn its players driving style

:04:14.:04:17.

using it to provide the AI for computer controlled opponents. It

:04:18.:04:21.

means the game can play by itself without the users input wracking up

:04:21.:04:25.

in game credits for its user. Quite how much fun getting a console to

:04:25.:04:28.

play a game for you is, well that's debatable, but Microsoft are

:04:29.:04:32.

confident that the cloud and consoles are a match made in

:04:32.:04:42.
:04:42.:04:42.

computing heaven. Being connected to the cloud is going to allow

:04:42.:04:45.

creators to make worlds that are alive. They are gonna have

:04:45.:04:48.

communities you are going to be able to interact with your friends

:04:48.:04:56.

they are gonna be rich changing vibrant real time. And Microsoft

:04:56.:04:59.

raised eyebrows by announcing the Xbox One will cost $499 when it's

:04:59.:05:04.

released in November. Xbox One will launch this November in 21 markets

:05:04.:05:14.
:05:14.:05:18.

around the world at $499 in the US and 499 euros in European markets.

:05:18.:05:22.

Over at Sony's press event later the same day the covers finally

:05:22.:05:32.
:05:32.:05:34.

came of the PS4. Ladies and gentlemen, I am thrilled to

:05:34.:05:44.
:05:44.:05:44.

introduce, the Playstation 4. the world's press caught a first

:05:44.:05:47.

glimpse of, well, a rather anonymous black rectangle, but an

:05:47.:05:50.

anonymous black rectangle with a few surprises in store. Under that

:05:50.:05:53.

black plastic skin, can be found essentially similar hardware to the

:05:53.:05:56.

Xbox One. Both machines are basically PCs in a box, however the

:05:56.:06:01.

PS4's price is $399, significantly cheaper than its rival. But when

:06:01.:06:08.

exactly did Sony arrive at this Xbox box spoiling price point?

:06:08.:06:12.

would say that we have not taken the decision lightly and it's been

:06:12.:06:16.

built into the holistic view of the business plan. I would say pretty

:06:16.:06:26.
:06:26.:06:31.

much from the start. A concerted counter attack from Sony then.

:06:31.:06:34.

There were of course plenty of games on show, from gameplay of

:06:34.:06:36.

Halo creators Bungie's much anticipated first person

:06:36.:06:39.

mulitplayer sci-fi epic Destiny, to third person teenager with super

:06:39.:06:42.

powers adventure, Infamous: Second Son. Around the announcement of

:06:42.:06:45.

these next generation consoles, something unusual has happened.

:06:45.:06:49.

What started as a minor online skirmish has erupted, into a major

:06:49.:06:52.

conflict. A conflict centred around how next gen machines will deal

:06:52.:06:55.

with pre-owned or second hand games. And how often they need to be

:06:56.:07:00.

connected to the internet. Microsoft has publicly stated that

:07:00.:07:03.

it won't charge gamers an additional fee to play second hand

:07:03.:07:07.

games on its new console, it's leaving that decision up to games

:07:07.:07:10.

publishers, it's also said the Xbox one will need to connect the

:07:10.:07:13.

internet once every twenty four hours in order for single player

:07:13.:07:23.
:07:23.:07:24.

games to work. Well look the world, it has changed from offline devices

:07:24.:07:27.

to online devices, if you think about how your tablet works, how

:07:27.:07:30.

your computer works, having an internet connection allows it to

:07:30.:07:34.

stay current allows it to stay vibrant and plug in to that

:07:34.:07:38.

community. Delivering a devastating body blow to its rival Sony

:07:38.:07:48.
:07:48.:07:49.

announced it had very different plans for its machine. When a gamer

:07:49.:07:53.

buys a PS4 disc they have the rights to use that copy of the game,

:07:53.:07:57.

they can trade in the game at retail, sell it to another person,

:07:57.:08:00.

lend it to a friend, keep it forever. PS4 won't require you to

:08:00.:08:10.
:08:10.:08:18.

check in online. We feel that it's not necessary to provide a degree

:08:18.:08:21.

of consumer enjoyment for the machine and at worse it runs the

:08:21.:08:27.

risk of being somewhat obtrusive. Finally Nintendo invited

:08:27.:08:30.

journalists to a low key briefing, outlining plans for a turnaround of

:08:30.:08:34.

the WiiU's fortunes, a state of affairs that Nintendo seems to be

:08:34.:08:40.

in confessional mood about. Well we all know that software sells

:08:40.:08:43.

hardware, and we just unfortunately haven't been able to deliver a

:08:43.:08:46.

strong enough software line-up to really drive sales for launch,

:08:46.:08:49.

however the good news is that we are showcasing today an amazing

:08:49.:08:54.

line up of amazing software that you can only play on Wii-U. Ninty's

:08:54.:08:56.

strategy for success seems to involve launching fans favourite

:08:56.:09:00.

titles such as Mario Kart 8 and Donkey Kong tropical freeze for

:09:00.:09:04.

WiiU later this year. So all of the major players now their cards on

:09:04.:09:07.

the table, however in the battle for home console dominance it's

:09:07.:09:15.

still not completely clear which company will emerge victorious. All

:09:15.:09:19.

the big announcements from this you's S3. Someone who has been

:09:19.:09:27.

following developments as avidly is Chris Grant, a gaming editor.

:09:27.:09:32.

It a very much sounds like, or the two giant, Sony has won this one

:09:32.:09:39.

hands-down. It is not necessarily what they will do long term, but in

:09:40.:09:45.

terms of performance, the theatre of the press conference, hands down.

:09:45.:09:52.

Unarguable. Soni one. Standing ovations. The most brutal thrashing

:09:52.:09:58.

I've just seen in a decade. In the hours after Microsoft's press

:09:58.:10:03.

conference, Sony thought that the you put the problems were to

:10:03.:10:07.

address and they would kick them when they were down. I cannot

:10:07.:10:14.

imagine them being that nimble. That is impossible to imagine.

:10:14.:10:19.

of the other big talking points was the price of the consoles. We now

:10:19.:10:26.

there will that the XBox One is $100 cheaper -- $100 to do.

:10:26.:10:30.

Nintendo traditionally sells a chipper device. Are any of these

:10:30.:10:37.

consuls too highly priced? For new console lunches, they are all

:10:37.:10:41.

within normal prices. They got down in time. They are already

:10:41.:10:48.

subsidised. Microsoft and Sony are paying more to build it. You get in

:10:48.:10:53.

a subsidised box. With Sony, the PlayStation 4 comes with the

:10:53.:10:59.

PlayStation 4. In XBox One, it comes to the Kinect. 1 Wii U, it is

:10:59.:11:05.

a current generation console. Sony does not have any of these

:11:05.:11:10.

peripheral. You get the controller and the box and that is it. That

:11:10.:11:15.

means they can ride this line of $400. Do you think the Wii U really

:11:15.:11:20.

is dead in the water? There is a rule about Nintendo, never count

:11:20.:11:24.

them out. They also have the Virtual Boy. Maybe you can count

:11:24.:11:30.

that out. We talk about these big manufacturers, Soni, Microsoft and

:11:30.:11:36.

Nintendo, but there are other platforms coming out based on

:11:36.:11:41.

Android. Should we be thinking about the wider range? That is

:11:41.:11:46.

where Microsoft is looking. It is about things like apple TV and the

:11:46.:11:52.

stripping boxes hooked up to your television. -- Apple TB. --

:11:52.:11:57.

streaming. What will be do with television? Will it be a gaming

:11:57.:12:03.

console? We are seeing a lot of Android-powered consul devices. It

:12:03.:12:10.

remains to be seen if they will have any consumer power. They need

:12:10.:12:15.

games and the need killer apps. Once they get them, it is

:12:15.:12:20.

attractive. You can get a lot of games you don't see other consoles.

:12:20.:12:25.

They can be cheaper. At the moment, there is no problem with console

:12:25.:12:31.

gaming. That you for your time and your thoughts. What have you seen

:12:31.:12:36.

that has caught your interest? The big consols of the smaller players?

:13:48.:13:54.

-- 16. Welcome back to the expo in Los

:13:54.:13:59.

Angeles. As we mentioned earlier, E3 is not the only technology event

:13:59.:14:04.

making headlines. By coincidence, Apple has scheduled its worldwide

:14:04.:14:09.

development conference for exactly the same time. It is a few hundred

:14:09.:14:17.

miles north in San Francisco. More details on Apple'sUp and look.

:14:18.:14:21.

First up, a software overhaul. Design guru Jony Ive gave us a

:14:21.:14:25.

sneak peak of iOS 7, the new operating system for Apple's mobile

:14:25.:14:29.

devices. It sports a more transparent design complete with

:14:29.:14:32.

eyebending parallax effects to give the illusion of depth when you tilt

:14:32.:14:37.

your phone. As well as looking all layer-y, the revamp included some

:14:37.:14:43.

Android-esque touches. Like a fresh way to multi-task with a swipe to

:14:43.:14:47.

switch between apps and a swipe up Control Center for quick access to

:14:47.:14:52.

settings. Siri, Apple's voice activated digital assistant...

:14:52.:14:57.

what can I do for you? ..can now tell you what your friends have

:14:57.:14:59.

been saying on Twitter, access Wikipedia and search through

:14:59.:15:05.

Microsoft's Bing. Disruptive news came in the form of iTunes Radio.

:15:05.:15:09.

This free app streams playlists inspired by genres or bands. You

:15:09.:15:13.

can even make them yourself. It joins a raft of music services

:15:13.:15:17.

released this year. Think Pandora or Spotify with a Quickfire route

:15:17.:15:23.

to purchasing tracks in iTunes. And in a triumphant "it's not a bug,

:15:23.:15:26.

it's a feature" fanfare, apps finally update to the latest

:15:26.:15:31.

version automatically. Also, the app store's become location-aware,

:15:31.:15:36.

suggesting the popular apps that might be useful where you are.

:15:36.:15:40.

While a test version of iOS 7 is now available for developers,

:15:40.:15:44.

everyone else will get access this autumn. As well as mobile devices,

:15:44.:15:49.

laptops and desktops got a software refresh with OS Ten Mavericks. For

:15:49.:15:53.

those wondering, it's not a cat like the others, it's the name of a

:15:53.:15:58.

beach. Updates include better task management to get more out of the

:15:58.:16:03.

processor. Also there are now tabs in the finder window, making it

:16:03.:16:06.

easier to cut and paste between folders and disks. Plus, files can

:16:06.:16:10.

be tagged with keywords as well. Great for Getting Things Done

:16:10.:16:15.

enthusiasts! Onto the hardware. The new MacBook Air packed in more

:16:15.:16:18.

graphics capability and for once the outer design wasn't thinner or

:16:18.:16:23.

lighter, it looks pretty much like the last model. Not so for the

:16:23.:16:27.

revolutionary design of the new Mac Pro computer. It was revealed in an

:16:27.:16:31.

ad reminiscent of the auto industry. Boasting ports galore on the back,

:16:31.:16:34.

potentially 12 processing cores inside this machine, it's squarely

:16:34.:16:40.

or should that be roundly aimed at the power user. Speed was the

:16:40.:16:44.

buzzword, with talk of twice the processing power of the last model

:16:44.:16:48.

and solid state storage instead of those outdated spinning hard drives.

:16:48.:16:50.

Its design is certainly bold, prompting comparisons to Darth

:16:50.:16:56.

Vader and...a bin. Whilst the Pro enjoyed positive attention from the

:16:56.:16:59.

web this week, initial reactions to the iPhone's makeover were mixed,

:16:59.:17:09.
:17:09.:17:17.

with some noting similarities with rival Android's OS.

:17:17.:17:21.

Also this declaration that the company has not lost its edge.

:17:21.:17:26.

Cannot innovate any more, my ass. It is clear that Apple is keeping

:17:26.:17:36.

at least one eye on the competition. What you think of the new look?

:17:36.:17:42.

Drop us a line. Meanwhile back at E3, a reminder from Disney that not

:17:42.:17:46.

all video games are about guns, zombies and exploding vets. A

:17:46.:17:50.

reminder that not all technology revolves around video games, as we

:17:51.:17:55.

go to Webscape. Most people have trouble

:17:55.:17:59.

remembering where they left important paperwork, especially if

:17:59.:18:05.

they have put it away somewhere very safe. But what if you have a

:18:05.:18:10.

fire or a flight? Policy buddy has been set up as a super safe storage

:18:10.:18:14.

vault for you to digitally store records of insurance papers, so you

:18:14.:18:24.
:18:24.:18:24.

will never lose track of them again. The fact that you can access the

:18:25.:18:29.

documents from any connected device makes it very convenient if an

:18:29.:18:33.

emergency occurs. Which, is just when you are likely to need your

:18:33.:18:38.

insurance policy details. Security wise, it seems as tight as any

:18:38.:18:43.

other good cloud servers, and meets UK data protection standards. But

:18:43.:18:48.

like many other aspects of life, there is never a total guarantee of

:18:48.:18:52.

security. It can also remind you when a policy is up for renewal,

:18:52.:18:58.

and there is a quick comparison tool for UK residents, although you

:18:58.:19:01.

are not committed to using it, and the service is open to people all

:19:01.:19:11.
:19:11.:19:14.

over the world if you only want to store policies.

:19:14.:19:19.

There are enough if it distracting apps out there to fill several

:19:19.:19:23.

courts, but what if you are looking specifically to train for a

:19:23.:19:28.

marathon, and had a windows phone said then? Marathon Runner should

:19:28.:19:36.

be right up your street, or 26 miles of it. I love marathons, I

:19:36.:19:41.

could watch them all day. Seriously, I would not want to be in your

:19:41.:19:44.

shoes if you are about to run a marathon, or anywhere near your

:19:44.:19:51.

shoes if you have run a marathon. The app is free and will help you

:19:51.:19:54.

plan and take a running regime so you can say for increase endurance

:19:54.:20:04.
:20:04.:20:08.

and mileage as you get ready to take on the full marathon. Two

:20:08.:20:12.

wheels and an engine, now that is more my idea of travelling long-

:20:13.:20:18.

distance. If you are a social Byker living in or visiting the UK, you

:20:18.:20:22.

may be interested to learn about Realrider, a social platform to

:20:22.:20:26.

connect with other bikers so that you can meet up and explore the

:20:26.:20:30.

countryside together, making a record of the best routes to share

:20:30.:20:40.
:20:40.:20:41.

with the wider community. Safety is a real issue for every biker, and

:20:42.:20:45.

one of the great things about this site is that it acts as a

:20:45.:20:49.

crowdsourced base of knowledge, when dangers are found on the roads,

:20:49.:20:56.

such as diesel spills, potholes, all other unexpected hazards. The

:20:56.:21:00.

information gets out on the road to the people who need it straight

:21:00.:21:05.

away, so riders can avoid any reported hotspots. It also provides

:21:05.:21:10.

speedy access to emergency services, including detailed location data if

:21:10.:21:15.

you are out on the countryside. You can event at important medical

:21:15.:21:19.

information for first responders, making this the ideal pillion

:21:19.:21:29.
:21:29.:21:29.

passenger. If you are driving all riding through Europe or the United

:21:29.:21:33.

States, you can save money on parking with a parkatmyhouse.com.

:21:33.:21:38.

They have just added a brand new app that lets users search and pay

:21:38.:21:42.

for convenient parking in town centres, near airports, train

:21:42.:21:48.

stations and stadiums, with over 250,000 registered spaces and

:21:48.:21:52.

rising. Residents can sign up to earn cash through the sherry

:21:52.:22:02.
:22:02.:22:04.

economy, by adding their own space to the rentals.

:22:04.:22:09.

That's it from Click at E3, but it has been the world's biggest video

:22:09.:22:14.

We are in Los Angeles at the world's biggest gaming expo, we take a closer look at the big rivals Playstation 4 and Xbox One. Plus we bring you the big announcements from Apple's new tech event in San Francisco.
