Xbox boss Phil Spencer has confirmed Microsoft's Xbox E3 2016 press conference will be 90-minutes long, which is about the same length as its briefings in previous years.

As previously announced, the event will take place at 9:30 AM PT on Monday, June 13. Although Microsoft has not officially confirmed what it will show, multiple reports have suggested a new version of the Xbox One will be revealed. It is believed to be "be 40 percent smaller" than the current one.

It has also been reported that Microsoft will separately announce new streaming hardware at E3. These will function much like Google's Chromecast and Amazon's Fire Stick, allowing users to stream content and play "lightweight" games.

Further reports have suggested Microsoft is also working on a more significant iteration of the Xbox One, which will increase its capabilities by four times its current power. This version of the Xbox One, it is believed, won't be shown until 2017.

You can check out all of the other companies attending E3 2016 right here. It's been confirmed that Electronic Arts won't have a booth or conference at this year's show, and Activision followed shortly after. You won't see Disney Interactive or Wargaming hold floor space this year, either.
