Microsoft having one theater venue but no real exhibition space to play games on is interesting/weird. Maybe they'll have GamePass demos for the people at home, around which Mixer will broadcast at E3. Though more likely, they probably figured they don't need to build up a stage floor just for some State of Decay cabinets and then all the other big games will be moved to Xbox 2.

Bethesda's huge space has me very giddy.
What? Forgetting about them being in the building across the street? I also don’t see the Xbox 2 part happening.

True :)

I think that in addition to bringing Kingdom Hearts III and FF VII Remake, Square Enix will also present:

Final Fantasy XVI
Final Fantasy X-3
World or Final Fantasy 2
Octopath Traveler
The World ends with you Final remix
Project Avengers
Project Prelude Runes
Life is Strange 2
Dragon Quest XI
and Legacy of Kain Remake O_O
smh


you forgot Chrono Break

I'm not sure if this has been discussed already, but do we have any clue as to what Google's presence will involve? I see that they have a meeting space.
Probably for using Google services for games. Unity now accesses the google maps api for example

Disclaimer: The materials contained in this post, namely image representations of E3 2018 target maps, have been through legal means obtained via https://ordering.ges.com/022601156/targetmaps.

On May 05, 2018, target floor plans for E3 2018 were made available for public view by ESA/GES (event planning and marketing partner) via the Expresso by GES service at https://ordering.ges.com/022601156/targetmaps. For some time, access to these target maps was via direct communication with show management, but the maps have as of today been made available for download, and no account/login on Expresso via GES is required.

These target maps do not directly show which company belongs to which booth, but I have cross-referenced through a separate booth list (available via https://mp1630k065.mapyourshow.com/7_0/search.cfm, provided later in this post) and marked select booths with companies. At this point of time I do not have access to booth size data.

The floor plans do not differ greatly from those I posted earlier this year. Some booths have yet to be assigned companies.

South Hall

West Hall



Concourse Hall

As mentioned, I cross-referenced with a separate booth list which was retrieved today, May 05, 2018. While the link to the exhibitor list isn't directly shown on the front page, I compared exhibitor directories for some other shows (mainly CES 2018) and tried the following:

This led to the exhibitor list being downloaded. Here in image form, so you can cross-reference the information yourself:











Interactive floor plans ought to be made available sometime in May via https://mp1630k065.mapyourshow.com/7_0/search.cfm

This makes me wish we had a layout of the Microsoft Theater to see how much bigger Xbox's presence is than everybody elses. Also, they must really mean it when they say this will be their biggest show, can't wait to see what they have in store for us!!!

Don't think it'll be bigger than Nintendo or Sony booths. They will have everything in one space with lots of meeting rooms, demo rooms, etc.

I am sure it will be just as big. They get the whole theater to themselves and still have a mixer booth in the convention center. The meeting rooms, demo rooms would be somewhere away from the floor and the fanfest area.

Has anyone in this thread been to E3 before? Where are the stairs to the meeting halls and how long does it take to get from south hall to west hall? This is my first time (I'm going as media solo) and I have no idea how much time I should a lot for travel.
