Tune in right here at 12:30 p.m. EST / 9:30 a.m. PST for live coverage as Microsoft presents the future of the Xbox gaming brand.
Microsoft has promised weary gamers who think the Xbox One is purely an entertainment system that they’re making an effort to bring them the one thing they want – GAMES! This E3 2013 press conference will either quiet the Xbox One detractors or continue to keep hardcore gamers far away from the new console. Let’s all hope Microsoft brings it during their time on that E3 stage.
