Microsoft will be hosting its E3 2017 press conference this Sunday, detailing plans for the Xbox platform in the months, or even years, to come. These briefings have traditionally lasted for around 90 minutes, but this time around, we may be tuning in for a little longer.

Xbox head at Microsoft, Phil Spencer, took to Twitter to clarify that this year's show may run over the time slot typically allocated for its E3 press conferences. While this isn't a bad thing for us gamers, it's still something to consider if you're planning to record the show or tune in with a tight schedule.

The company clearly has plans to cover a range of bases through the presentation, with the debut of its new "Project Scorpio" Xbox console and upcoming titles. Outside of Microsoft's core lineup, we also expect to see some third-party games running on the new console, as well as upcoming ID@Xbox indie titles. And if we're lucky, maybe a couple of surprises too.

Microsoft's E3 2017 press conference kicks off on Sunday, June 11 at 2 p.m. PDT / 5 p.m. EDT. Alongside live streams on its in-house Mixer streaming service and various live video sites, the show will also be broadcasted via cable and satellite on Fuse.
