Where to watch the livestreams

A handful of sites are livestreaming the events – including YouTube which has tied up with IGN in providing an E3 channel. Gamespot will have a live streaming camera as they move across the E3 floors and across keynotes. If both the sites are not available, you could also check out G4TV’s live streaming option. Some more live streaming options have been covered in our prior post, so do have a look if these sites are timing our or causing problems.

What to expect from E3?

Here’s a list of some of the big publishers’ lineup for E3:

Other Notes:

  • Microsoft will officially debut, demo and name “Project Natal” at E3 ( as of now, Natal is still a codename).
  • Sony’s page mentions “new games and hardware” revealed. Is this is a reference to the PSP2 ?
  • The Last Guardian is most probably one of the most anticipated games of E3. Little is known about this game, apart from a brief video shown at last year’s E3. Wonder what’s in store ?
  • Valve has confirmed a “big surprise” for E3 2010, which will be in-place of the existing E3 event that was Portal 2 screening. What will it be?

This year’s E3 boasts of a killer lineup. I can’t wait for the press conferences to start. What’re your expectations ? Do post a comment and let us know!
