E3 2013: The Conferences, the Interviews, and the Booth Tours

E3 Logo 1 LargeE3 2013 is nearly here! Since we’re going to be heading out to Los Angeles earlier than usual, we wanted to post our schedule for you all and let you know what’s going on. This is by no means a complete list (we’re looking at just under double what you see) as we’ve got a couple of unannounced items on our docket, but we’ll be sure to spread the news as soon as we can!

We land Saturday, June 8th, and while the first E3 event isn’t officially until two days later, you can bet there will be a ton of news leading up to the show, and we’ll be bringing you lots of video and written content right up to door opening time on Tuesday morning. All times are local Pacific Time; for Eastern times, add three hours.

We purposely left our Thursday a bit light on the interviews and booth tours for two reasons (no, that’s not a shot at Sony). First, it means we can report on as many goodies as possible early on in the show to really bring you the coverage you want to see. But most of all, it’s because we can leave Thursday for playing all the games we missed, and going back for seconds (and thirds, and fourths) with the games that we loved the first couple of days.

Like we said, there are some private events that we haven’t listed for the sake of not making you all jealous, but rest assured there will be even more kick-assery going on during the week of E3 than we’ve let on so far.

So, keep following us on Twitter and Like our page on Facebook, and we’ll see you at E3! You can also check out our Press Conference Hub for all the info on the, well, press conferences!
