E3 2015, the biggest event in the video game industry, is happening now. Prepare for some big news.

The Electronic Entertainment Expo, better known as E3, kicked off Monday, and the opening day draw was a much awaited Microsoft (MSFT) press conference. In the days leading up to E3 2015, Microsoft made several high-profile announcements, including a partnership with Facebook's (FB) Oculus to bring Xbox games to Oculus Rift and an improved Xbox One bundle consisting of a console with a 1TB harddrive and a wireless, headphone jack-equipped controller.

That's why many were expecting Microsoft to deliver big news on Monday, and the tech giant did just that. Starting this holiday season, Xbox One will have backwards compatibility, allowing consumers to play previously purchased Xbox 360 games for free on Xbox One. Sony (SNE), which famously embarrassed Microsoft at E3 2013, has its PlayStation 3 library on its Gaikai cloud streaming service, but users have to buy those games again to play them on the PlayStation 4.

E3's impact extends beyonds the video game industry—Wall Street also keeps a close eye on the expo. Back in 2013, Microsoft shares fell 1.7 percent the day after the company's disastrous conference while Sony's stock rose 1.7 percent.

Below is a list of stocks that are appearing at E3 2015 in some form or another. A warm reception at the Los Angeles Convention Center as well as on the Internet could prove to be a boon for these stocks, which have returned between 10 and 75 percent in the year following last year's expo.
