With e3 coming near, I figured it was time for a official place to talk about news, rumors, predictions, and such.

E3 2015 is June 16-18.


Most companies have a press conference a day or two before the show floor opens. Most will be streamed from several gaming sites, YouTube, and Twitch. The past few years, a couple cable channels streamed a few conferences also. Personally, I'll probably use the IGN App on PS4/XB1 and also have my iPad on various gaming sites for inside details.


Conference Times

Sunday- June 14
Bethesda - 7pm PT / 10pm ET

Monday- June 15
Microsoft- 9:30am PT / 12:30pm ET
EA- 1pm PT / 4pm ET
Ubisoft- 3pm PT / 6pm ET
Sony- 6pm PT / 9pm ET

Tuesday- June 16
Nintendo- 9am PT / 12 ET(Special E3 Nintendo Direct) (Treehouse Sessions all week, like last year)
Square Enix- 10am PT / 1pm ET
PC Gaming- 5pm PT / 8pm ET. Hosted by AMD and PC Gamer


Sony will be showing their conference live in theaters again this year. For tickets and more info:

What's everyone hoping to come out of e3 this year? Any predictions? With both Bethesda and Square having their own conference, what games do you think they will show? Why not just show at Sony's or Microsofts?

Personally e3 is my favorite time of the year. It's like Christmas for a gamer but even better!

In this year's e3 I'll know if keep my WiiU or rather get rid of it. I hope they don't announce a price drop.

Last year I went over a friends house to watch the conferences and we went to the theater to see the Sony one.

So we have less then 7 weeks until E3. Within the next couple weeks, we should start hearing rumors and predictions for what will be announced. I thought I'd be fun, to maybe do a few different topics of discussion between now and the convention.

So to start off, what's your favorite E3 memory? What's something you will never forget? Maybe it was something completely insane, or maybe just a huge shock to a lot of people.

In 2013, with the PS4 and Xbox One both revealed at separate events leading up to E3. Everyone couldn't wait to hear more on the Next Generation of console gaming. Microsoft started the day with a decent showing, but seemed to taking the Xbox in a strange new direction with online only gaming and no used games. With almost a full day between them, Sony took the stage to end the night. Everyone thought Sony might follow in the same direction as Microsoft and have similar features in the PS4. In one of my most memorable moments from e3, Jack Trenton took the stage and started talking about the features of the PS4. Not only were the features different then Microsoft's, they were the exact opposite. It was almost like they took the features that were unpopular with the Xbox and purposely went the other direction. It seemed some of the slides and wording were aimed directly at Microsoft. Everyone in the room cheered as Trenton announced used games can be played on the PS4 and you don't have to be connected to the internet at all times. Then at the very end, he announced the price of the new Playstation , $100 cheaper than their closest competition. And simple dropped the mic and left the stage, ending the conference and my most memorable e3 moment.

So CAG, what are some of your most memorable E3 moments?

So eight pressers this year? Holy shit this is going to be a good E3. I just kind of wish Square, Nintendo, and the PC gaming conference would take a note out of Bethesda's book and hold their conferences on Sunday because I can't take two days off of work to watch E3. =P

 

Also Square is in Nintendo's usual time, I wonder if they'll stick to Tuesday 12pm ET or if they will move to a different time slot. It can't be too difficult for them to move around now since they don't do a normal press conference anymore.

I thought Nintendo said they were going to have a normal presser this year?

I will never forget the look of confusion on attendees' faces when we're sitting in the Sega reveal and they annouce "Surprise, Saturns are sitting in retail stores right now!" We weren't sure what to make of it because that was so odd to do it so early and have no build up for it.

I don't believe they have said anything in regards to their plans for E3 this year other than they're focusing solely on games releasing in 2015

Updated OP with Nintendo's announced info. Why would they have their video the same time as Square Enix's conference? Maybe It was on purpose? Or maybe Nintendo truly don't care?

It was $100 cheaper. $400 PS4, $500 XB1 w/Kinect.

You mean Square doesn't care as Nintendo has been 9 AM PST on Tuesday for over a decade now.

Only a few more weeks to go! Super excited to see what everybody has to show off. I guess since Nintendo decided to still go at their usual time even though Square has scheduled presser that time slot I'll have to decide which one Id rather watch live. I wish I could just take that day off work too and have them both up on two of my monitors. :p

 

 

I'm also excited for Ubisoft to talk more about the female protagonist from Syndicate. I'm glad that finally a mainline Assassins Creed game is getting a female as a playable character.

Hey heeeyy!!  Really looking forward to this year's E3 especially the Bethesda conference!  Here's hoping for Fallout 4 and Fallout: The Ultimate Collection! 

 

Most memorable moment?  Well it was back a few years ago when I was a Xbox 360 fanboy.  I was super excited that they were going to reveal a trailer for Metal Gear Solid 4 for 360 but it turned out to be Metal Gear Rising.  I think that same year I purchased a PS3 bundled with Metal Gear Solid 4 and Killzone 2.  That marked the very end my fanboy-ism.   :D

Or do the Trinity not mix with the hoi polloi anymore?

I'm really excited to see what they announce this year. Hugely excited for Bethesda's show, but I will be tuning in for it all if I can.

Two weeks away! Can't wait, it's seriously my favorite time of the year. Still kind of disappointed I couldn't get tickets to the PS4 E3 Experience, I'm on the wait list. But I'm not going to the theater that's an hour away and not get in, then miss the conference all together. I'll just sit at home and watch it on TV.


Anyone have any predictions?
