Microsoft will be in full hype mode during E3 2015, promoting upcoming games for its Xbox One console, showing off its upcoming HoloLens device, and possibly some surprises. Today, the company revealed some of its plans for E3 2015 in Los Angeles, including a chance for 500 lucky residents to attend a special Microsoft event.
First, Microsoft will hold its annual E3 media briefing in LA on Monday, June 15 beginning at 9:30 a.m. Pacific Daylight time (12:30 p.m. Eastern time and 5:30 p.m. GMT). Microsoft will show off new gameplay footage from previously announced Xbox One titles, along with reveals of all-new games for the console, among other events. Microsoft will stream the E3 2015 media briefing on Xbox.com, the Xbox Live Events Player for Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone and directly on the Xbox One and Xbox 360 console. The cable TV network Spike will also broadcast the event live in the US.
Microsoft will also stream another show, Xbox Daily: LIVE @ E3, on June 15-17 from 4-5:00 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time (7 p.m. Eastern time and Midnight GMT). Microsoft says:
Finally, people who happen to be in the LA area during E3 can register to be picked as one of 500 attendees of Microsoft's Xbox FanFest from June 14-16. Here's what those lucky to be selected can expect:

hope they launch Xbox slim at e3 ,
One and a half years after launch? Not likely.
Big is the new small.
Im only a 2 hour drive away, I would love to go.
Sucks being in the UK sometimes.
It's good to be in LA
Only one person? Was hoping with a friend too
Does anyone know if they go to unveil a new xbox with "better" specs... some rumors like a TB hard disc system (and else) was in the air
Wish I could go... One day.
Bah, I'm in UK :(
Sadly the Xbox Live Events player never seem to work on Windows Phone. Tried to use it during last E3, but no no. And was unable to find any stream that didn't require Flash. Hopefully this time I'll be able to watch it!
Well I never have any problems the links always work
Looking forward to all the cool announcements next month.
