First, let me apologize for the banners. For some reason my photoshop stopped working, so I had to rush these through MS Paint. Hopefully it's the content that matters :P

QUICK LINKS: Nintendo, Microsoft, Sony, Multiplatform/Misc


As many know, I enjoy the process of summarizing. It's soothing:

E3 2006 Summary Topic
Tokyo Game Show 2005 Summary Topic
E3 2011 Summary Topic

Those are some examples of my past work.

How does it work?

This year, I'm simplifying the summarizing process. In short, there will be two terms used for every bulletpoint. Wherever you see the word "Link" you'll get a direct link to an article, video or some other informative bit of news about the bulletpoint. Wherever you see the word "Thread", you'll get a link to an ongoing neoGAF discussion about that bit of news. This way, this thread is integrally linked to the community as well as E3 as a show. I hope this process makes things easy for you guys to follow!

How will the updating process work?

There will be four main posts, each segmented into themes. One is for Microsoft, one is for Nintendo and one is for Sony. The fourth is for Miscellaneous items and Multiplatform titles. Each day you can check my OP, and you'll see the latest bulletpoints with a timestamp. This is how it will look

June 6, 5:52PM(EST)

● Stuff happened and it was fucking real (Link, Thread)

June 6, 7:00PM(EST)

● Remember that other shit? That was nothing. Some REAL shit happened now. (Link, Thread)

The latest update will always be at the most bottom of the page. This way, you'll always be able to see what news you might have missed. My schedule is going to be irregular, but in general you'll always see an update around 5:00PM(EST), and then continually until around 8:30PM(EST) as far as I can do. Keep checking to see if anything is new!

How can you help?

You probably didn't ask this. But I'm going to pretend you did anyway! I am one single person, who also has to hold down a job. The industry is now a massive, daunting place with news falling out of every orifice every second around the hour. What this means is that it is literally going to be impossible for me to get every single bit of news everywhere. I'm bound to miss something.

I fully encourage you to post news articles - using the format I have for my topic bulletpoints - in this thread or in PM to me, and I will also update them into the post. At the end of my posts, I will regularly be updating a "thank you" list to everyone who has contributed.

Oh, and one more thing...

Obviously, this thread is incomplete and more of a template at the moment until the E3 news really starts raining in, but I wanted to get this up in advance of Nintendo's Direct and with Konami's pre-E3 conference today, it just seemed like the right time. Please don't post how there is not a lot of news yet. I know :P

I have the same post delay as you all, so please allow me to reserve my four posts for the purposes of this thread. Thank you :)



Thanks you to the following members for their contributions!

For me it's simply the understated joy of organization, the collecting of data into little lists and easy-to-digest bites. It's hard to relate if you're not into that sort of thing, but it's almost like my little slice of zen.
