As the Electronic Entertainment Expo (commonly known as E3) continues to grow in popularity, so does casual gamers’ interest in all of the top tier titles unveiled during the press conferences. While past years have seen live broadcasts of various publishers’ conferences, this year’s not only sees the largest offering, but each of them will be available via a few different outlets.
In order to ensure that you don’t miss a minute of the live E3 presentations — in between checking Game Rant for up to the minute news — we decided to put together a guide to each press conference broadcast — where to find them and at what time.
Though the main show doesn’t begin until Tuesday, many of the biggest surprises to come out of E3 will be taking place on Monday June 6th when Sony, Microsoft, EA, and Ubisoft will be having their press conferences. Unfortunately, Ubisoft currently has not secured broadcasting rights, but if they do pop up we will let you know.
For the majority of Monday, Spike TV is the place to be as the cable provider will have live coverage of Microsoft, EA and Sony’s Press Conferences beginning with Microsoft at 9:30 AM, continuing with EA at 12:00 P.M., and finishing with Sony at 5:00 P.M. Also, for those interested in a little more virtual of an experience, Sony will be broadcasting their press conference through PlayStation Home.
With most of the big guns out of the way comes Tuesday where gamers will get their first look at Nintendo’s new console during their press conference at 9:00 A.M. Though Nintendo’s conference won’t be broadcast on television, the publisher will be streaming the event over on their official E3 site. And, of course, once the press conference begins, so does the madness of E3.
For those a bit more organization-minded here is a handy breakdown of the press conferences [Click for press conference previews]:
