This year for E3, Saturday solely belonged to Electronic Arts.
Sunday will be a defining day for one of the three biggest hardware/software publishers – Microsoft. Now usually, the Xbox gaming brand hits the E3 press conference stage on a Monday. It seems like they want a head start on the competition this year, plus it’s rumored that they’ll go longer than their usual 90-minutes run time. Microsoft is still running behind in the gaming arms race behind Sony, which is why this press conference is seen as a “make it or break it” situation for the company. After watching last year’s teaser reveal behind their “Project Scorpio” console upgrade, it should come as no surprise that Microsoft will go deeper into details regarding the latest version of the Xbox One. Expect to learn more about specific console specifications, pricing, upgrades to current-upcoming games etc. when the Scorpio comes into focus.
Besides the coming out party for “Project Scorpio,” there should be a healthy serving of new games that will land on all iterations of the Xbox One. Chances are high that a new Forza Motorsport, State of Decay 2, Sea of Thieves and the reveal of new Killer Instinct DLC will pop up during this live stream. Maybe there’ll be a reveal of a rebooted Battletoads. Will there also be some shocking reveals for entirely new exclusive IP’s? Only time will tell. Stay here to watch Xbox’s E3 2017 proceedings transpire before your very eyes.
