Chris Jones Gaming is so looking forward to E3 this year! I am not actually going to Los Angeles, but I very much love the atmosphere created around an event like E3. I will very likely be mirroring coverage from another source. Admittedly, I favor Playstation over XBox One – but have a look at this regarding Microsoft at E3 2018.
In case you missed it – Here is a Microsoft Press Release from March 2018.
Since Xbox made its first appearance at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in 2000, Xbox has had a major presence at the show, delivering exclusive and powerful ways to let fans in on what we’re up to, and 2018 will be no different. In fact, it will be our biggest showing ever.
With the evolution of E3, now including fans and extended show hours, we saw an opportunity to create an entirely new show experience reaching E3 attendees and those that are following the show from afar. With that, in collaboration with the Entertainment Software Association, the organizers of E3, we’re excited to announce that Xbox will be taking over the Microsoft Theater, a perfectly situated space located in the heart of L.A. Live. That is across the street from the Los Angeles Convention Center (LACC).
The Microsoft Theater
The Microsoft Theater will be home to official E3 events like the Xbox E3 2018 Briefing on June 10, 2018 at 1PM PT, various Xbox FanFest activities, hands-on gameplay and demos for all E3 attendees and more. Not only does the Microsoft Theater allow us to centralize our Xbox presence at E3, but it’s size enables us to include even more fans and partners in the Xbox E3 2018 Briefing than ever before.
In addition to the Microsoft Theater, we will continue to have a meaningful presence at the LACC with a new booth completely dedicated to Mixer, where you can play, stream and interact with games and catch the latest E3 news live throughout the entire week.
Expanding our presence, multiple venues, in addition to taking over the Microsoft Theater – give us the opportunity to bring together a variety of Xbox experiences into one primary location. Most importantly, we will let fans in on what we’re up to in 2018 and beyond in a fresh new way.
So mark your calendar for Microsoft at E3 2018; the Xbox E3 2018 Briefing for June 10, 2018 at 1PM PT to kick off the week of E3 with us. We’re excited and will have plenty more to share on our E3 2018 plans soon.
