Cool. I tend, if I can't watch live, to watch the uploads on the IGN YouTube channel, just because I'm familiar with most of the Pre and post show presenters etc.

I highly recommend watching the Xbox press conference on their Mixer channel www.mixer.com/xbox and make sure your gamertag is linked to the mixer account.

I'm not sure what the rewards are in the "mixpot" but last year everyone got Rare Replay just for watching it.

I've also received a Sea of Thieves pistol skin on mixer, too!

There's a bunch of dev talks at e3's coliseum. I'm not sure exactly what's on there but it might be worth checking out

Utterly nonplussed by the EA conference.
I thought Unravel 2 and SOS looked great, and didn't mind a couple of other sections, but the Madden, Respawn, and C&C stuff, in particular, were up there with some of the worst-produced segments I've seen at any E3 conference, in my opinion.

The games are a bit of an unknown for Microsoft, but they'd be hard-pushed to impress me less than EA did.

Onwards!

Thanks for the heads up. Rare replay for free?! I’m not sure they could trump that but I love an incentive!

Sounds like there might be two different mixpots this year, one for watching this and another for watching the inside Xbox stream tomorrow that... well... is on at the same time as the Sony event.

Hearing alot of buzz around the Xbox conference i think this one has the potential to be the best one Microsoft has had in years, wondering how many third parties are gonna show up.

I could sling it on my TV, whilst watching Sony's conference on my tablet, I guess. At least for as long as it takes to stick my hand in the mixpot. ;)

I feel like I’m at the cinema watching all these trailers back to back. Very well produced so far.

It reminds me of a Sony conference a few years ago where they just sat back and showed a load of trailers for awesome games.

You wonder whether Sony will show too much complacency.

What’s this? Ninja theory...?

Interesting move, announcing recently acquired studios.

Yeah, Microsoft is looking really confident in their output so far.

The whole ninja theory acquisition deal leaves a sour taste in my mouth.

My thoughts exactly.

I hate the “exclusive” soundbite. Especially given most of the games are not exclusive. It’s just marketing tactics for people without an attention span.
