Their E3 2016 press conference is set to go down on Monday, June 13th, at 9:30 Pacific. You can find the entire press blurb, below:

The Xbox E3 2016 Briefing will take place Monday, June 13, beginning at 9:30 a.m. PDT.

    Well at least this is just most likely going to be a boring conference than Sony’s which will probably shove VR down everyone’s throats like the Kinect.

    The real cringe is at the Ubisoft conference. Girlwood and all that horror.

    Gears is their big exclusive this year, but I wonder if they’ll show some new IPs. Scalebound has moved to 2017 and they’ll need something else for the holiday. Possibly another Forza title.

    I’ll admit, watching these is almost like a guilty pleasure (until I give up an hour or so in) since I like seeing the train wreck unfold before my very eyes. The best E3’s are the ones that cause butthurt, shitstorms, and just good ‘ol fashioned embarrassment.

    Forgot about that one. It is listed as Q2/3, so it could show up.

    I remember one year that had me legitimately entertained but the next year they were the most boring thing I’ve ever seen.

    Honestly both shows are that much already nowadays:


    Only difference being that the weeb games get better ports than MS games nowadays…

    Waiting for them to announce the upgraded Xbox One and kill all future interest in the Xbox brand for me. Same way Sony did with the “Neo.”

    Quantum Break was easily cracked, you can play it right now.
    Making these games avaiable for other OSs is going to take longer however.
