Bless the internet. Microsoft wants to bring gamers to E3 and live streams make that easier than ever these days. With the release of an all new "Xbox @ E3" teaser trailer, Microsoft wants everyone to know that they'll be offering such live streams every day from the show floor on top of the live press conference. Just tune in June 12/13/14 on Xbox.com or on Xbox Live from your console for developer interviews and exclusive content.
Who, you may ask, will be bringing you such glorious coverage? The suits at Microsoft will be busy shmoozing, so not them. Why, none other than several former G4 personalities (and also a few Microsoft folk). Here are the names listed in the trailer below:
- Larry Hryb - Director of Programming at Microsoft for Xbox Live
- Tina Summerford - Executive Producer at Xbox
- Graeme Boyd - Social Marketing Manager at Xbox EMEA
- Morgan Webb - Former X-Play Co-Host and Producer
- Kevin Pereira - Current Host of Let's Ask America and Former Co-Host of Attack of the Show!
- Blair Herter - Former Co-Host on Attack of the Show! and X-Play
- Blair Butler - Former Co-Host of Attack of the Show! and X-Play
- Jessica Chobot - IGN Personality
Also teased in the trailer are several games, though their relation to the streams in unclear. For instance, Splinter Cell: Blacklist is shown, but so is Halo 4 and Gears of War: Judgment. Obviously old games won't be shown during this year's E3, but perhaps they're meant to tease something else?
Microsoft's E3 conference, headlined by the newly announced Xbox One, will air June 10 at 9:30AM PT/12:30PM ET. Stay glued to Neoseeker for full coverage of the event, but make sure to check out what Microsoft is throwing together too. Next-gen consoles only come around rarely these days. Just maybe... mute the audio until the trailers or demos start.
