Not 2 hours, but just 1.
The Spike TV listing says it's an hour too. http://www.spike.com/tv-sch... There's a half hour GTTV thing after.
Just bring the darn thing already
The Xbox 360 is also nearly 8 year old and long past it's natural cycle... Microsoft has been ramping up for the next system for the past year or so
Too bad it's at 1pm EST, middle of a work day. :(
ps3_pwns isn't it your bedtime? run along, now.
Watching everything on Xbox Live and DVRing the Spike/GT stuff on cable just in case. 1 Hour pre-show on GameTrailers pre-show w/ Keighley & crew Followed by... 1 Hour Xbox Next Gen Revealed main show Followed by... 1 Hour GameTrailers com post-show Keighley and Don Mattrick interview Followed by... 1 hour Twitch.tv post-show live show with Major Nelson & guests. Can't wait to finally get this show on the road Evil
@evildead360 - Pretty funny when the post game show is longer than the actual event lol.
@murdoc I know I'm lucky its on when I'm not in work in the UK, you would have thought something as important to MS would have been planned for a Saturday or a sunday
@SMGP - I appreciate the metaphor, but this isnt Game 7 of the World Series. Its a video game conference. And in the world of video games, its pretty disappointing that Microsoft is going to be spending more time talking about the conference rather than actually showing us games in the conference itself. Id rather have Microsoft spend that extra time actually showing us more next gen games. Honestly, what real gamer is more interested in hearing about tech specs and apps over actual games?
'Pretty funny when the post game show is longer than the actual event lol.' Nah, if you actually looked at what's scheduled to be shown it's between 3 different sources. GT, MS, and Twitch. They were just smart enough to not have them coincide. The post even interview from GT is standard stuff. But, I'd rather the event go an hour and have nothing but content than to have two with a lot of fluff. Either way, the event is on Spike and I'm assuming it's commercial free. That costs an arm and a leg. Compared to just streaming it over the net. E3 is where the magic is going to happen for both consoles. Evil
Did spike cover the PS4 reveal or is this just a personal favor for MS?
That depends if Sony wanted Spike to cover the reveal. And who watches Spike?
this is the first time i've heard of spike, what is it?
"And who watches Spike?" Target audience of Xbox.
People who like to fight other people watch spike.
Man this place is just a wealth of original Xbox and Microsoft jokes.
My favorite show from Spike is MXC.. too bad they never show it anymore :(
People use to watch spike when UFC was there. Now they have Bellator which is the only reason i watch it.
Spike had covered the MS E3 for the past two years maybe three. But not Sony or Nintendo
sony streamed it themselves
What time will this be for the UK?
6pm for UK.
Straight after work so rush home!
only 1 hour? Sony win next gen confirmed!
55 minutes of kinect 2 followed by 5 minutes of cod.
epic meltdown tomrrow i cant wait lol
Something something xbox360 something something else always online something something Kinect something something PS4 something else chicken sandwich.
an hour ? cmon...
Live Stream on IGN: http://n4g.com/news/1261290...
There will be a 1 hour post stream on Twitch with Major and Guests. that is probably second h
i just read a article that said 2....what is it damn it!??!?!??!
The TV broadcast/live stream is an hour with post events going on after. MSFT is not going to pay for two hours of TV time to announce things they are saving for E3 spots. This reveal event is not E3 showing off games it's just a console reveal and some basic displays of its hardware with some software showing it off. MSFT isn't going to waste money on TV time trying to fluff up their reveal with things they need to talk about in later shows and or things they would like to do later on. An hour on hardware using games to do so can still be much more than a hour of mixed bags. There seems to be many PS3 fanboys happy about this but it means nothing. There will be interviews and websites still sharing on it after the reveal and the developer embargo will be lifted as well which is more important.
