How To Watch E3 2011 Coverage Live
If you want to watch E3 2011 as it happens you have several options. Spike TV will air Microsoft's press conference live and commercial free. G4 TV will also air all of the press events plus other coverage each day.
Alternatively, you can also watch on streaming video site Justin.tv. Justin.tv is a site where users stream video for other people to watch. If past years are any indication, Justin.tv will probably provide the best performance (streaming on gaming websites tends to get pretty choppy and laggy as more people tune in, that doesn't usually happen on Justin.tv), so give it a try if you haven't used it before.
What Will Microsoft Show at E3 2011?
Rumors have been swirling about what Microsoft might show at E3 2011. We know Gears of War 3 and Forza Motorsport 4 are definitely going to be shown, but aside from that we have no solid info. We also expect some sort of announcement regarding the 10th anniversary of the Halo series - whether that is the rumored Halo CE remake or something else remains to be seen. Third-party games will also surely be shown (expect some sort of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 announcement) as well as other big titles from Electronic Arts, Ubisoft, Square Enix, THQ, Activision, and more.
It is safe to assume that Kinect will play a big part in the show, and some rumors have indicated at least 10 non-sequel Kinect games will be shown along with expected games such as Kinect Sports 2 and Dance Central 2.
There is also a slim chance we'll get some info on Microsoft's next console system. With Nintendo showing off it's next-gen wares this year, you have to expect that Microsoft and Sony won't be too far behind.
