I'm so worn out - I was looking for the Sony conference... read all the table across my timezone and then I've realized/remembered that Sony is not doing any E3 press conference this year

I’m gonna sound like a fanboy but I don’t care, but no Sony makes this kinda of a pointless E3 for me.

Looking forward to losing sleep and being a zombie at work during E3. So like any other day.

Edit: SONY
It feels weird not having Sony around this year but the more I think about it, the more I am OK with it. I really want to see what E3 today looks like without Sony. I really want to see what that could mean for the future of E3.

I hope it's good this year, even with Sony and others missing. This is the first E3 since like 2014 where I have a few days off to watch the first two days, and not watch when I can in the background at work.

Pleased Im not working during the xbox conference.

I think for my E3 food I'm going to have medium rare Ribeye steak cut into cubes with a Stilton dipping sauce, home oven fries siracha mayo.
Mango
A selection of cheeses, figs, apple + celery.

To drink a coke zero and water.

Involved in a database move to AWS on Sunday night / Monday morning (UTC+1)... And I'm doing it remotely from home ... Just as Microsoft and Bethesda are on... So I know what ill be having on in background... Plus get paid double time and can have lie in on Monday after I've done..

That's worked out pretty well..

Any plans for a spoiler free thread with links to videos of the conferences? I know I won’t be able to watch them live this year, and trying to search for them on Youtube/Era afterwards will definitely end up with me seeing news about the reveals before I can watch them.

Thanks so much for always posting the bag rules! I forget where they put it on the site and it's always helpful for our staff that uses a mix of different badge types.

You are welcome. Yes, that infographic could have been more easily accessible. To note is that the particular image used in the thread is my own designed which is derived from the official. The information is identical, I just found the official graphic to be too heavily compressed making it slightly difficult to read.

Thanks for putting this together!

As a first time E3 attendee (standard gamer badge), I’m curious about what to expect for wait times. For something like Nintendo’s booth, is there a line just to get into their main area versus lines for each game demo?

Thanks for this thread!

Hey, I don't think we've had a thread for all the non press-conference live streams going on throughout the week for E3. Starting on Saturday PDT with the EA PLAY stream (no conference, but a hosted stream) and going all the way through Friday PDT. An unprecedented seven days of livestreams!

These are some of the ones I can think of off the top of my head:

(All days PDT)

Saturday
- EA Play (Kinda Funny hosting part of it)
- Giant Bomb (EA Play watch-along)
- Easy Allies (EA Play watch-along)
- Nintendo Super Mario Maker 2 invitational thing, Splatoon and Smash world championships

Sunday
- Youtube at E3 (with conferences)
- Xbox show at night
- Kinda Funny (conferences watch-along and Showcase)
- Giant Bomb (conferences watch-along)
- Easy Allies (conferences watch-along)

Monday
- Youtube at E3 (with conferences)
- Inside Xbox
- Kinda Funny (conferences watch-along)
- Giant Bomb (conferences watch-along)
- Easy Allies (conferences watch-along)
- Easy Allies podcast live at night

Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday
- Twitch
- Gamespot
- Nintendo
- Ubisoft
- E3 Coliseum
- Xbox E3 Mixer Dome
- Square Enix (last year Just Cause also had its own stream going)
- Giant Bomb at night
- Easy Allies at night
- Kinda Funny gamescast in the morning

Friday
- Kinda Funny gamescast in the morning
- Easy Allies recap afternoon
I edited this post to reflect the Nintendo tournaments are happening on Saturday PDT, not Sunday PDT.

This'll be the first year I won't be able to watch all the conferences live. Working sucks, but hey, lol.

FYI I won't be posting the archive and spoiler-free E3 thread this year due to other commitments so someone else can post it.

Not sure where to post this... If you're coming to EA Play, try to get breakfast at the Waffle, it's right next door. They make incredible waffles. :)

I will like to volunteer for the E3 VR thread. How do I go around doing that?

After digesting the Google presentation, Stadia would actually be something I'd be interesting in if

A: If my work had better public wifi. Only specific users and devices are allowed to access the fast wifi network
B: I didn't already have a PS4 and wasn't planning on getting a PS5

I also like how the guy talks about the production budget of BG3. Of course. Everyone knows it's going to sell a bajillion units even if it's mediocre.

Is there going to be a "Spoiler-Free" E3 thread for people who can't catch some stuff live? I've found those very useful over the years and I forget if they usually go up closer to the start of the show or not so I'm kinda worried lol.

Ubisoft just sent this out for their E3 press conference, which has a weird event happening before their conference.

......wait, what.

Ubi, don't play with me.

What's the policy on a 'Leak Megathread'? It's really close to E3 now and so much stuff is leaking that going on Era without one is just going to ruin a whole bunch of surprises for you.
