E3 always makes GAF a trudge to read, I kinda wish there was a way that I could just blink threads I don't care about off the list to narrow the massive trudge of topics that comes in. I can't remember which year, but it seemed like new topics were every 2 minutes, made GAF an undiscoverable mess. Is there maybe a 3rd-party/app solution to that?

So, for Bethesda Fallout starts at Berlin at 4:00 in the morning and ? Is that correct. NOT 14:00

I want to be sure about because, ouch I can't stay that much even or Fallout :( At least when I wake up I will have everything ready from threads.

And if it's possible for countdown clock on each conferrence, that will come in handy.

I've done the GAF "Best of E3 Award" threads the last two [2014, 2013] years. Is anyone else up for doing it this time around?

Otherwise I'll just do it again and based on the locking of the voting thread last year it should go up on June 18th after the show floor is closed. I think a voting period of 3 days, just like last year is fine again.

Bethesda conference will be live at 3:00AM UK time and i'm not staying up for it.

Does anyone know of a link I could have on my computer so soon as I wake up I can just refresh the tab and the conference will start? I'll need the same for Sony conference too.

I don't want to wake up Monday morning, search Bethesda or Sony E3 conference and see a bunch of spoilers. Thanks!

Twitch highlights is probably the best option, but avoiding reveals and reactions will be difficult... A detailed youtube search such as "Sony Playstation E3 Press Conference 2015" or "Bethesda E3 Press Conference 2015" might help, then specify filters such as duration above 20 mins and uploaded "today".

Example: https://www.youtube.com/results?lcl...ny+press+e3+conference+2015&filters=week,long

Right now that gives you predictions and stuff because no conference has taken place, but on the day I would guess the top result would be an official PS channel video or IGN/Gamespot stream of the conference and it should minimise news/reactions to reveals (which is what you don't want)

Thank for doing it. I've subbed. But what if I want to watch something on a slight delay? I'll be watching the GoT finale Sunday via streaming and would like to start watching Bethesda from the beginning starting about 30-40 minutes after that conference begins. What's the best way to do that? Start the stream and pause?

YouTube has DVR functionality. Hopefully Bethesda use YouTube as well as Twitch for their conference. Otherwise, there will be no way to rewind.

Is there a reference for what is going to be on TV?
on SPIKE TV? Usually it's Microsoft, Ubisoft and EA. Sony dose not go on TV and therefore are allowed to go on a bit longer than the others. I might be incorrect but this is the pattern from previous years.

So what are the chances that the twitch channel will be completely unwatchable? Lots of loading and buffering. I know that it is the partner so I would assume that it would work flawlessly but who am I kidding. I would love to watch the conference on my tv through the twitch on ps4 instead of pc.

Gametrailers and YT are the best quality streams usually. Followed by Gamespot and IGN. I would also say they're much ore reliable than Twitch. Have backups ready. hThe chances are relatively high.

Is this a good place to ask if Sony plans on using their live events viewer and more importantly, can I party chat while watching it via live events viewer?

It is a good place. Unfortunately I do not have the answer :(
My laptop is undergoing repairs and I don't want to watch on my PC in a far off corner of my place while using my phone to converse with folks I plan on conferencing with.

I wonder if I can use the YouTube app (or browser) to stream and party chat.

from the PS blog -

It’s happening! Monday, June 15th marks PlayStation’s annual E3 Press Conference. The big show starts at 6:00pm Pacific / 9:00pm Eastern. You’ll be able to watch the festivities live on your PS4 or PS3 using the Live Events Viewer app, or via PlayStation.com, Twitch, YouTube, and right here on PlayStation.Blog.

But there’s more. Our PlayStation LiveCast show kicks off Tuesday, 6/16 at 12:00pm Pacific / 3:00pm Eastern. Expect to see Ryan, Justin, and me debut new gameplay footage, game demos, and developer interviews across more than 40 upcoming games.

Ah thanks. I wonder if there's anything on there we could test party chat with.

Just finished the Bethesda thread. I'm going to have it up tomorrow, about an hour or two before the pre-show starts (so 430-530 PM PT).
