The big day is finally here: in just about 10 minutes (as of writing), Microsoft’s 2013 E3 press conference will be kicking off, and we’ve got a stream embed for you right here, courtesy of Game Informer, so you can watch with all of us as it happens live.
UPDATE: The press conference has apparently been pushed back by 30 minutes. Expect it to go live at 9:30 PT.
With the Xbox One reveal being focused so much on just about anything but games, Microsoft is expected to show off a number of its first and third-party titles – perhaps some of those 15 internally-developed games for the Xbox One.
In fact, Microsoft said as much themselves; just ahead of the press conference, Microsoft confirmed that at least 20 games will be shown throughout the press conference. We’ll also likely hear a bit more about the hardware, and a little bit more about that whole “cloud computing” deal.
Whatever it is, Microsoft needs to bring their A-game – Sony came out swinging with a slew of titles, including those of the indie variety. The war is far from over yet, however – whatever Microsoft and Sony both have to show today will start a whole new generation of console wars.
If there’s one thing that has me excited, it’s this: during GameTrailers’ pre-E3 show, Microsoft’s Phil Spencer said that famed developer Rare had an announcement for the “hardcore” crowd. Please, please be Killer Instinct 3.
