In an unsurprising announcement, Apple has confirmed that the keynote address for the Worldwide Developers Conference will be at the Moscone Center on June 10, the first day of the conference.

Prior WWDC keynotes have started at 10 AM Pacific time.

http://gematsu.com/2013/05/microsoft...ess-conference

Microsoft will host its E3 press conference at the Galen Center on Monday, June 10.

Invites ask that guests arrive by 8:45 a.m. Pacific time. If past years’ start times are anything to go by, it’ll begin at 10 a.m.



Interesting. This sort of heavy overlap has happened in the past few years - Apple tends to get tons of press attention (negative and positive) even when they're not doing anything, and they can certainly suck the oxygen out of other people's announcements by drawing the attention of the tech press.

Have they ever previously had a WWDC keynote at the *same time* as a big console-maker's E3 press conference, though?

I'm really looking forward to apples conference because I need a new laptop. I'm hoping they refresh their Mac Book Air lint that day and release that week because I want one.

I thought GAF has declared iOS isn't part of gaming? So we shouldn't have to worry.

As a gamer, I know which conference I'm going to tune into. The other I can go to Engadget afterwards to read the announcements.

I apologize, by the way, if this is considered off-topic. I just think it's an important thing to take into consideration when we think about how the tech press and the broader press in general is going to receive E3 in general, but also specifically Microsoft if a bunch of press venues send their top reporters to cover Apple's event instead.

The Apple announcements will suck all the air out of Microsoft's – during and after. Go look at the tech media from last year for evidence of what happens.

I don't think this will have much impact in terms of coverage, since the press expects this in advance and would have assigned people to cover both events. It's a non-issue. The question is whether people who want to discuss either of these events will be able to do so on GAF if there's additional strain. I sure hope so! >_<

Could you imagine if they announce a $99 Apple TV that integrates with your television and used Siri and has an App Store?

XBOne is attempting to be an all in one media device, so I would say competition with Apple is a big deal

Watch Apple announce a new Apple TV upgrade that does a whole bunch of the same things that the Xbone does.

Obviously all stories will get covered, but I think it's likely that Apple will be the ones with the top headlines on many sites (this will also obscure plenty of news for the rest of the gaming industry and not only Microsoft, IMO).

I'm a gamer, but i'm also a tech enthusiast and my MBA is the best piece of tech I have ever owned.

The entire tech world will be watching what Apple is doing next as per usual. It's a big deal.
I think it's more fun to hop in the OT Apple conference thread and watch it happen live with GAF, and just read the Microsoft threads on Gaming Side once it's over.

This is probably why the One reveal was only about the technical side of the console, features, etc.

E3 conference will be all about the games, so it happening at the same time won't really matter as they'll be focused on very different things. Not sure why people are getting so excited.
