In addition to holding its own dedicated Xbox press event on June 15 in Los Angeles before E3 2015 officially begins. Microsoft will also participate in the first annual PC Gaming Expo on Tuesday, June 16 in LA as well. Microsoft's Xbox lead Phil Spencer will speak at the event to talk about the company's plans for Windows 10 gaming.

PC Gamer, one of the main sponsors of the PC Gaming Expo, has also posted an interview with Spencer talking about why he and Microsoft have decided to join the event. Spencer says:

"We're proud to be involved in the first PC Gaming Show. E3 has traditionally been a console-focused event, so it's great that there is a forum to celebrate all that is going on in the community and it's an opportunity for us to speak directly to core PC gamers. In Windows gaming we are part of an overall ecosystem and it's critical that we understand and recognize this."

Spencer also offered a general overview of what Microsoft will discuss and reveal during its part of the PC Gaming Expo:

"Specifically, we'll share our vision for gaming on Windows 10 and why it's the best version of Windows ever for both gamers and developers alike. We have bold ambitions, but we also want to set expectations early and often as to what gamers and developers should expect. Also, we want to make clear that when we talk about Xbox going forward, we're talking about gaming on all Windows 10 devices – PCs, tablets, phones, Xbox One and HoloLens. And we'll talk about some of the games we have coming to the PC this year."

The event will be held at the the Belasco Theater in Los Angeles and will be live-streamed on Twitch.TV. Besides Microsoft, the PC Gaming Expo will feature "new game reveals, updates on beloved series, and perspectives from key PC developers" such as Blizzard, Square Enix, the Creative Assembly and many more.
