Tune in to Microsoft's Xbox media briefing live, 9:30 a.m. PDT, 5:30 p.m. BST!

The week of E3 is nearly upon us and we're already getting a glimpse into the next year of gaming releases. Following the Sunday night press conferences of Electronic Arts and Bethesda, Microsoft is leading Monday with the Xbox media briefing. This E3 is looking to be a big one for Microsoft, with a number of top-tier titles expected to make an appearance, alongside a revision of the Xbox hardware.

This year's conference is expected to place a heavy emphasis on Microsoft's universal Windows 10 vision, and the continuing convergence of the Xbox and Windows platforms. This unification has been underway for some time now, but the final pieces are coming into play one year after Windows 10's public release.

While a number of titles are returning for their second year at E3, we also expect to see a range of new titles making their debut during the show. If recent leaks hold up to be true, we may be looking at reveals of Dead Rising 4, Forza Horizon 3, and many more titles exclusive to the Xbox platform. We also anticipate receiving more details on upcoming Microsoft Studios titles such as Scalebound, ReCore, Gears of War 4 and Halo Wars 2.

Finally, we can also expect some sort of hardware announcement, following a number of detailed leaks earlier this year. At this point, the Xbox One S is all but confirmed, but a more powerful successor to the console is also supposedly in the pipeline.

You can catch the stream of the Xbox media briefing from 9:30 a.m. PT, 12:30 p.m. Eastern, or 5:30 p.m. in the United Kingdom, at the embedded stream below. Alternatively, the event can be watched directly via the official Xbox Twitch channel or on an Xbox One console. We'll also be live-blogging the event right here, giving you up-to-date information straight from Los Angeles.

The embedded stream automatically plays a trailer for Microsoft's E3 press conference. Sorry in advance for any burst eardrums!

  • Still finding reasons to tell my boss in order to get out from work early.
  • i have summer class at 10 and i have to attend first day or ill lose my seat.  ****!!!!  please record this for me rubino. 
  • Odds are it'll be watchable on the Xbox Twitch and YouTube channels following the show.
  • I'll be there live for the fanfest woohoo yes
  • Cool - I can listen to this in the car on the way home from the office :)
  • 2:30am Tuesday, Sydney time
  • 5:30 p.m. BST ????? You meant 5:30 p.m. GMT surely.
  • Actually 4:30 pm GMT/UTC. BST is GMT+1. Somehow I feel that Windows Central still haven't quite realised why we want GMT/UTC? It's not because we want to know the time in the UK. It's because we want to be able to easily convert to one of the many other possible time zones we may find ourselves in. I don't mean any offence, I just don't understand why we get BST which hardly anyone outside the UK recognises, and not GMT/UTC which everyone knows.
  • They say BST coz it is BST... If you don't know what it is, you just need 10s to look it up... I don't see any problem here
  • That's an exaggeration. In reality it takes about 30s, or 60s on a mobile plus losing your current context. Times thousands of readers that's quite a lot of time wasted. Alternatively the author/editor could look it up themselves for 30s and it would waste exactly 0s of all their readers' time.
  • Too many people assume GMT means the time in the UK all year round. Then we get complaints, yada yada, we just stick to actual times in places. The most important time is the local one to the event, it can always be figured out better from there.
  • Yeah, but people in the UK don't. Just give UTC and people can do the math from there.
  • I'll be there live for the fanfest woohoo
  • I'll be working
