is EA's conf really on Saturday at 8pm (UK) and MS on Sunday at 10pm?!

I remember getting home from work on Tuesday and conferences would start at 6pm.

The whole schedule this year is spread out, sucks.

Great thread.

How long after the live streams do they get uploaded to playback on YouTube? Asking cos of Sony's conference being 2am UK time, not sure I can keep awake for that time.

Weird schedule.

I would've thought if MS is on Sunday 10pm UK time and Sony Tuesday they could at least get Sony on earlier if it's so spread out. MS used to be on at around 5pm UK time. MS have flipped between two reasonable times for US and Europe viewing. Sony still on 2am-3am for Europe.

Does Sony doing it late is to get the Japanese market the info too or let them watch live

I mean 9PM EST is 9AM over there

If any earlier like 5-6PM EST would be way to early for Japan

What about thread duties?
All I know is that Ultros! is making the Sony thread again this year.

The companies pick their own time. I guess Sony just likes their slot since they've stuck to it for a while now.

They do it to align with the west coast since it takes place over there.

Is there somewhere an iCal file or equivalent to add the events to our calendars?

Seem to remember using it for previous years, but can't find anything now.

I just hope that I can get on here, I know many feel it's part of the E3 experience when GAF goes down under the pressure, but I don't :(

Is Geoff going to do one of his things where he hosts stuff over the 3days? If so, where? I really like that.

Based on the start times, I'll probably only watch Sony's live. I'm sure there will be VODs of the Microsoft conference... Which I guess is the only other one I care about.

I used to watch them all, but they were much more tightly packed I think.

Has there ever been a conference on a Saturday before? They're all so spread out this year.

Not in the past 10 years at least. In the past, there have been firms that have hosted pre-E3 livestreams before the weekend such as Oculus in 2015, Square last year and Konami before that.

When does the Official E3 Snack Thread go up?

Anytime this week. Anyone can start it.

Got my roster for next week.

Working during Sony's conference.

Working 8am the morning after Nintendo's (it's at 2am here).

Fuck.

Might stay up for Nintendo's anyway. Who needs sleep?

Bethesda - grats on picking the worst time for almost everyone on the planet.

Although no mention in the OP I am most excited for the Bethesda conference and hopefully the "Starfield" rumor is true.

I aim to have the E3 2017 | General Information and FAQ ready early Friday.

It will feature the usual stuff but also some emphasis on the show floor and what to think about for first time attendees. Let me know if you have any certain requests on what to include in the thread.

I continue to be surprised and disappointed at Sony's timing. You'd think they'd try to get a reasonable European time for the stream - 10am-12pm PST would be fine.

Is it because it's a week day so they want people to get home in the US before starting?



Also - are MS and Sony both streaming in 4K?
