E3 is just around the corner and that means watching what the Big 3 (and some third-party companies) have to offer during their press conferences (or Nintendo Directs). For some, they'll get to watch every Megaton or embarrassing moment live. For others, they won't get to experience that because they'll be preoccupied with something else.

If you're the latter and would like to watch each conference on your own time without having to be spoiled of every announcement before hand, then this is the topic for you.

This is the Spoiler-Free E3 2013 Press Conference thread. The thread is pretty simple: Once a press conference ends, I'll update this OP with multiple links to each conference as soon as they become available. And before someone asks, yes this thread is necessary, so don't bother asking.

Now if you want to avoid visiting gaming sites without being spoiled, it would be in your best interest to BOOKMARK this post. Or if you like having your account logged in while you're away, SUBSCRIBE to this thread and then bookmark your subscription page (sounds redundant but whatever). Simple enough, right?

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

NOTE: Given that Nintendo is using their Nintendo Direct format to present their titles, it's safe to say that only 2-3 links (UStream, Youtube, main site) will be provided but if more links do show up, I'll post them as well.

Microsoft Press Conference

Taking extra prerequisite courses this summer and I have class from 2 to 5:45...
I won't be able to tune in for MS's chance of redemption. Hopefully my friends won't go crazy on me during that period of time! Thanks for the thread!

Does anyone know how fast a recording of the Xbox conference will go up and if it will be available to rewatch on Xbox 360?

I'm hoping it will be posted by late afternoon before sonys conference

What will be the best place to find a Nintendo Direct replay after the initial showing? That will be the only one I miss live and I have a feeling that Neogaf will be down when I get out of class (12 PM).

Does Nintendo usually allow replays at the original Nintendo Direct link after their showing?

OP, will you be adding youtube links or what? I'm not sure if I want youtube or not because of recommended videos that might show off what was already shown. :/ Anyway, just wondering what all sites' videos you will be posting.

subscribed, btw.

Thank you op.

Considering the number of times it happened in the previous 2 years, which iirc led to a few bans as well, it's good this way :)
