Are the starting times of all conferences known yet? If so, does anyone have a nice overview of them? I fear that some conferences might overlap with one or two football matches ...

Yes they are known and yes they overlap with football (soccer for US GAF)
I think the ones that could overlap with football are Ubisoft, MS and maybe EA.

You think an announced game that's confirmed to be released this year is going to skip E3 while an unannounced game is going to be released this year? Interesting lol.

There's no way God of War is coming out this year imo, only because God of War always comes out in March. I'd imagine March 2017 is the earliest it releases.

We had our E3 prediction feature in our podcast: Nintendo Times Radio. The podcast covers all platforms and isn't Nintendo-specific.

Some of them are "out there" because it's fun to take wild stabs. A couple of mine were:

Hideo Kojima will be on-stage at Sony's press conference and show a teaser trailer for his new game.

Rockstar takes the stage at Microsoft's press conference to announce Red Dead Renegade - All DLC comes to Xbox first.

EA brings back NCAA Football.

Nintendo announces at least one new game at E3 - most likely through their press site or a press release.

For the rest, feel free to listen here, and if you want to jump straight to the E3 predictions segment, skip forward to 1:18:22

For anyone who won't be able to catch the live feed, do they have full playbacks of the convention? I won't be able to catch E3 this year, so I'd like to know what press conferences to check out later in the day on Youtube. This will be the first E3 I can't watch live. I'm assuming Sony and Microsoft will have press conferences, as will EA and Ubisoft.

I will believe in Last Guardian when i'm holding it in my hands :( We are still seeing basically the same footage we saw in 09 with not a whole lot in terms of new stuff.

Regarding God of War, march seems more realistic though I think they want to bolster their holiday lineup

Didn't Miyazaki specifically say that Old Hunters was it for BB? Like no sequels or w/e?

I personally would love it but I feel like they're moving on from the Soulsborne style altogether.

We might see a DeS PS4 remake (believe!) but I would be shocked if they are doing BB2.

Edit: Yep. Here: http://www.pcgamesn.com/dark-souls-series/no-plan-for-more-dark-souls-or-bloodborne-says-miyazaki-as-from-software-get-to-work-on-new-ip and on a couple other sites, too.
I'll be extremely surprised if there's not another Bloodborne instalment, even if it's not From working on it. I know Miyazaki has been crucial to the success of these games, but if I were Allan Becker I'd either build a team within Japan Studio or hire some ex-From staff (or both) to work on at least one Bloodborne sequel. I mean, don't forget that it has a Metacritic score of 92% making it one of the most highly-rated exclusives of the generation (top five?), and it had sold 2 million copies as of October last year, so I wouldn't be surprised to see it in the 2.5-3 million region accounting for the Game of the Year edition.

I would also love a Demon's Souls remaster, and I would give it to Bluepoint to handle as they're absolutely the best in the business.

To add to everything that has been dreamed, I unveil my prediction:

Dissidia Final Fantasy console announcement (or at least PS4), with a 2017 release window and a cool trailer (also revealing Noctis).

New E3, new E3 2016 - Hype Montage from mah nigga TacticProductionz, who's lurking but can't post because he isn't approved yet. Love you man, you did good!
That was pretty good. It only lacked a bit more diverse footage (and some things like Agni's Philosophy didn't really belong) and the dates for E3 at the end.

Info from PC Gamer on the "PC Gaming Show"

In 10 days, we’ll broadcast the PC Gaming Show on Twitch and YouTube, live from Los Angeles. We’re excited to bring this event back to E3. The purpose of the PC Gaming Show is not to compete with the press conferences put on by Ubisoft, Bethesda, and others (if anything we’ve gained respect for what it takes to organize such an event), but to help shine a light on the many exciting, cool and weird projects being made in every corner of the PC universe. We want to showcase a little bit of the amazing stuff that’s happening on PC and celebrate the platform we call home.

The PC Gaming Show starts at 11:30 AM Pacific (2:30 PM ET, 6:30 PM GMT) on Monday, June 13 and will run for 90 minutes. If you tune in, you can expect a mixture of exclusive new footage, new trailers, new details on existing games, and unscripted conversations between developers and our host, Sean ‘Day9’ Plott.

Following the main presentation, we’re airing additional interviews and gameplay footage with some of our participants, which we’ll use as an opportunity to dig into greater detail on some of the games and hardware shown on stage.

10 AM Venue doors open
11:10 - 11:25 AM The Steam Speedrun, presented by Razer
11:30 AM - 1 PM Main program
1 - 2 PM Post-show interviews and extras

See the link for more info.

The timetable on the main page will need updated.

Wonder if e3 is when they announce X-com 2 for console.

Could see it as part of the Adam Boyes 3rd party power half hour or when MS uselally has a bunch of 3rd party trailers one after another.

Its not a biggy. Just something cool that can be tossed out there

Will someone do a spoiler-free E3 press conference thread again this year for those who can't watch live? Would be much appreciated by all those who have to work/ sleep or are occupied by other stuff. ;)

I will be creating the Spoiler Free E3 thread again this year. It may be called the 'catch up and archive thread' after some consideration of the concerns in the spoiler culture thread in the OT section.

It will archive all the links from all the E3 conferences, reaction streams and livestreams. Last year, YT Gaming archived the whole livestream so I anticipate them doing the same this year.

Bookmark the thread, or the Google Sheet link in the thread. All the links to the streams will be posted to both. There is no discussion in the thread so it's a case of clicking the link that you need. I will post the YT gaming archive link in the thread too.
Will be posted on Monday.
