Microsoft E3 briefing set for June 10

Xbox maker's 2013 presentation set for Monday, June 10 at Galen Center in Los Angeles.

Microsoft announced today that its 2013 Electronic Entertainment Expo briefing will take place the morning of Monday, June 10 at the Galen Center in Los Angeles, California.

Microsoft said last month that it will use its E3 2013 presentation to "showcase our full lineup of blockbuster games," among other things.

The presentation will take place just 19 days after Microsoft's May 21 event titled "Xbox: The Next Generation Revealed." The company is widely believed to announce its long rumored Xbox 360 successor during this presentation, taking place at Microsoft's headquarters in Redmond, Washington.

With Nintendo not holding its typical E3 presentation this year, Sony is the only member of "The Big Three" that has not yet detailed its plans for the annual trade show.

like I previously mention in here, Microsoft should start their press conference  by  telling the world that the long rumor that's been going around,  about the always on internet connection system rumor is false, and that a always online connection is not needed to play games. Then after that let me know about your system, your Kinect and how powerful it will be and let me know and see some footages if they are available of some of your upcoming games that you working for Xbox 720. If Microsoft wants to star their press conference in a wining way, that's the way it should start.

Comes down to 

1. Always On is for real - MS, you know what you can do with your console.

2. Always on was just a rumor - Awesome,  I'll be queuing up around the block to be the first few to get our hands on the 720

The first thing I wanted hear from Microsoft is that the long rumor that's been going around,  about the always on internet connection rumor is false, and a always online connection is not needed to play games. Then after that let me know about your system and how powerful it will be and let me know and see some footages if they are available of some of your upcoming games that you working for Xbox 720. Start the show with that Microsoft.

I wouldn't be surprised if Apple had a briefing on that the same day like they did last year. lol

I hope their internet connection doesn't drop while on stage:"This is the latest Xbox... please bear with us... it requires an always online internet connection... Anyone have a mobile hotspot?! Anyone? HELP!!!!!".

Getting a PS4 and will get the next Xbox on day 1. I just plead that they have new IPs and don't push the same tired franchises with stupid timed exclusives.

I can't wait to see what's in store.  I hope the reveal is better than the PS4's.

Seating capacity of just over 10,000. Should be entertaining. Good or bad, I'm very intrigued as to what M$ has in store. Also looking forward to the day people (including supposed "professional" journalists, cough Eddie, cough) stop calling it 720 :p

it's actually rather smart to announce the console so close to E3. That way, they can try and dominate headlines for the weeks prior to E3, generating a lot of interest for their booth at the conference, which may let them dominate headlines for even longer.

well, unless always-on is confirmed, then it may backfire :P

Oh, just hurry up and reveal the god damn console already.

I'll just be happy when they finally say the console itself won't require an always online connection. All these idiots taking rumor as fact are getting annoying especially the ones that think "always online" games won't be on the PS4 as well.

@steelmouth I loathe what they've been doing with the 360, but if they do end up trouncing the PS4 then I guess I'm in.

@Redsyrup lol! That's a good one. I still have hopes that they not gonna be dumb enough to released a always on internet console to play games. I guess we gonna have to wait and see for that one.

@Mkeegs79 too true.... but I would not hold my breath.  I think your asking for too much.  

The cost to develop games will increase, and they will have to make up that loss somehow.

@rasterror By "better" do you mean talk more about Kinect 2.0, Smartglass and more TV services....oh yeah and games too...why not.

@rasterror PS4 hasn't been revealed, only announced! They have to reveal it at E3 or there is something seriously wrong with Sony!!!

@Zero5000X Yeah, skip this for that. The conference will be available later.

@JayQproductions Clearly you haven't been reading before posting; that was not the issue, there will be MMOs and MMOFPSs coming to both systems, but the rumor was that the 720 would require internet to function at all. THAT is what people are upset about..

JayQproductions

@MjnE @JayQproductions Like I said, I'll be happy when they finally say the console itself won't require an internet connection. And yes i know the fact that the console might require a constant internet connection is the big problem, but there are also idiots on here every day claiming the PS4 won't have games that are always online when it actually will because Sony is giving the publishers control over anti-piracy measures so if the publisher wants their game to require an always online connection, it will even if it's a single player only game and not an MMO.

@blackace @MjnE Trolling fail if I ever saw one. That article you've pasted on 3 different articles now (as far as I know) isn't the bad news you make it out to be. That's just Sony's executive being smart about their business. They're sacrificing their money and not becoming as greedy as M$ by doing that.

If M$ had the executives Sony has it would have probably been making back all its money it blew for the 360 a long time ago. I don't expct you to know this, but they spent $7.5B on the 360 and are almost done making all of it back, now that the generation's over. Now that's some smart business.

@blackace @MjnE whatever, making millions of it in did not make last e3's conference any more interesting in retrospect

@R2C25 @HowlPendragon Even if that were true it beats the hell out of multiple DVDs (L.A. Noire = 3 discs) and a shitty subscription service.

@HowlPendragon I don't settle for clones... Your system is known for Blu-ray player and that's it.

@sladakrobot @HowlPendragon What actual well-regarded games does the Xbox really have besides the Halo and Gears of War series?

I'm talking games that can measure up to God of War, Uncharted, Little Big Planet, Last of Us, flOw, Journey, Closure, Heavy Rain, Infamous, Killzone, Ni No Kuni.

Yes, its still just an opinion, but its a fact that there are much less games that have received the same amount of worldwide praise those have for the Xbox.

@JayQproductions @McGregor 

No they won't. Most console games don't have the money or time to try to flip over to PC gaming. There are great games on every platform. You'd be a bias fool to believe otherwise. 

McGregor

@JayQproductions If they do, then I'll get to save money on both consoles! What is funny about this, is that with all the failures the Wii U is suffering right now, everyone will own one because they don't want to put up with the BS that MS and Sony are offering.

@McGregor @JayQproductions @MjnE which is exactly what Sony is doing. Just like thay said "The PS4 won't block used games, but the publishers might."

McGregor

@JayQproductions @MjnE This is how Microsoft will spin it. They'll say, "we don't require always online, but the publisher's may require it."
