I just hope they'll show that new Criterion game. That concept they showed before looked pretty sweet

Ubisoft's conference is usually at 3PM so I doubt EA will go for 2.5 hours.

Should be the best EA conference ever if they deliver Battlefront, Mirror's Edge, and Mass Effect.

I don't think the actual conference will be 2.5 hours long. Might be an hour and the rest media time. The start time might be a midtranslation of time zones. I will wait for western media confirmation.

But if true it messes up the schedule that has been in place for years.

EA is usually at 12 PM and the next one is Ubisoft at 3.

So now EA is at 1 to 3.30 then Ubisoft will be pushed further to allow media to get to the event.

Edit: I remember a few years ago Sony's Gamescom invite said the event was 3 hours long. It turned out to be a 1 hour conference and 2 hour media interview afterwards.

EA's press conferences are normally 1 hour long. No way in hell is it going to be 2 1/2 hours unless there's like an hour long demo of Battlefront 3.

Well, they have a couple sports games to show, Mass Effect, Battlefield, and Star Wars. That is just off the top of my head. Who knows how they will fill up that 150 minutes. Hopefully it won't be boring for long periods of time.

Mirror's Edge. It's all I really care about seeing from there.
If I don't see anything relevant like actual gameplay from the game and not "ooooh concept art!" or "we're still testing out things!" then I'm done with EA. I really want this game *pouts*

Mirror's Edge straight into my veins. One of the best games of last gen IMO. And it's been what, 7 years? Damn.

I'm not sure where the OP got his info, but the invite I received today says it's the usual one hour. Maybe I'm only invited to the first hour? ;-)

2.5 hours?? I'm not sure what to think.
A live brainstorming event. Where they take a game from conception (drawing up ideas on paper napkins) to reveal as a live action performance trailer during the last hour of the proper conference.

Wasn't it 2 hours last year, except that it's 1 hour for the actual conference and another hour for people to play hardline?

Just give me some Mirror's Edge gameplay and release date along with a Mass Effect, reveal trailer in-game footage, that's enough for me.

I think back on their conference last year and break out in hives. Words can't express just how much of a shitshow it was.

IMO, it will be 1-1.5hr long, and then the rest will be journalist having hand's on to the new games [maybe even livestreamed to the web].

Hi Ryan! I checked mine again. It's 0100-0330 on the invitation.
I also believe that it would be an one hour conference, maybe with two hours for play.
I'll ask my friend to collect their info about this. : D

Does this mean that other conferences might be on the 15th, even though E3 is scheduled from the 16-18th?

I'd like to know so I can book some time off at work!
That's always the case; the high-profile conferences are on the days *before* the show formally starts.

E3 officially starts on the 16th. Everyone's press conference except Nintendo's is the day before like always.

Yeah, though there are a few new conferences this year, so it's more like this:
14th - Bethesda
15th - Microsoft, EA, Ubisoft, Sony (in that order)
16th - Nintendo, Square Enix, weird PC Gamer conference

Unless Nintendo change their usual E3 Direct time, they'll release it at the same time Square Enix has their conference.

Didn't realise it was the week after download fest this year so probably gonna miss most of it live :( (expect the 16th stuff) due to busyness (birthday stuff on the monday/ download on the sunday).

Every conference is actually "pre-E3". The E3 begins when the show floor opens, at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

E3 officially starts on the 16th. Everyone's press conference except Nintendo's is the day before like always.
Nintendo's conference is on the same day, but still before the official opening.

I could imagine the other 1.5 hours will be some livestreamed Gameplay, like last year with BF4
Are they already confirmed in that order ?
Not confirmed but they're always in that order. So far the only difference from the last few years is that EA's conference is on an hour later but I doubt the others will change.

I'm guessing it will be an hour conference with additional time on the invite for after show playtests and such as with most conferences!

I'm looking forward to seeing Battlefront, Mass Effect and Mirrors Edge hopefully all with some significant details :D Maybe a new NFS/Racing game of sorts?

I'm not looking forward to the sports stuff but I never due :( It is EAs biggest venue for that as the Sony/Microsoft conferences don't cover much of EA sports these days.
