Here’s How to Join Xbox at E3 2014

With E3 less than two weeks away, the Xbox team is hard at work getting ready to show the world what we’ve got in store for the future. We can’t wait to share more with those of you watching from home or the office, but we also realize that some fans might want to do more than just watch. Although many E3 events are closed to the public, we know that a lot of our fans live in the greater Los Angeles area and would love to take part in celebrating all things Xbox. To that end, we’ve put together a number of great events taking place throughout the week of E3, both in LA and online. We hope to see you there!

Microsoft Store Pre-E3 Event (Sunday, June 8 from 1-3pm, line opens at 11am)
Have you always wanted to attend the Xbox E3 Media Briefing? This is your chance! One hundred people who attend this event at the Century City Microsoft Store will be granted access (via raffle) to Monday’s Xbox E3 Media Briefing event and Xbox: E3 Briefing Post Show. While you’re at the Microsoft Store, go hands on with ID@Xbox titles as a sneak peek of what’s on the E3 show floor – before E3 even gets underway. We’ll share more specifics next week.

Pre-Show/Green Carpet (Monday, June 9 at 9am PT)
New this year, we are inviting fans to be part of the excitement at the Galen Center in the final minutes before the show kicks off. Tune in to our live stream on Xbox.com or Xbox Live for an exclusive pre-show featuring sneak previews and interviews with our development partners and celebrity fans as they arrive at the Galen Center and walk the green carpet.

Xbox E3 Media Briefing (Monday, June 9 at 9:30a PT)
Details on this post from earlier in May.

Xbox: E3 Briefing Post Show (Monday, June 9 at 11:15am PT)
Tune over to Twitch.tv/xbox immediately following Xbox: Game On for a live, fan-centric “post-game show.” Xbox leaders and developers seen on the Media Briefing stage will talk more about what was just shown and will answer questions from Twitter and the live studio audience. Guests include Phil Spencer (Head of Xbox), Chris Charla (ID@Xbox), Yusuf Mehdi (Microsoft Devices & Studios), Ted Price (Insomniac Games), and Bonnie Ross (343 Industries). Details on how to submit questions for the Post Show will be revealed soon.

Sunset Overdrive Event at Century City Microsoft Store hosted by Major Nelson (Wednesday, June 11 from 6 – 9pm)
Insomniac Games is taking the Sunset Overdrive E3 show floor experience outside of the LA Convention Center for one night only! Join us at the Century City Microsoft store to be among the first gamers to go hands on with this upcoming Xbox One exclusive. Attendees will also have the chance to meet the Insomniacs that make Sunset Overdrive and Xbox Live’s Major Nelson. Ice cold Overcharge Delirium XT awaits! (Yes, seriously)

ID@Xbox on Twitch (Tuesday through Thursday during E3 show hours)
While the Xbox E3 booth is open, we’ll be broadcasting what you want – straight gameplay. Every day, we’ll focus on two different ID@Xbox titles, with many of the developers stopping by to chat with viewers. We’ll also be taking many other titles over to the Twitch E3 booth throughout the week, so keep an eye on the main Twitch channel as well. The full broadcast schedule will be revealed at the beginning of E3 week.

Xbox.com/E3 is also a great place to catch up on the latest news.




Another May is upon us, which can mean only one thing: E3 is just a few short weeks away. Today we’re confirming that Xbox: Game On, the Xbox E3 2014 Media Briefing, will take place Monday, June 9 beginning at 9:30 AM PDT.

E3 show view

During the briefing, you’ll be treated to everything from in-depth looks at previously announced games to trailers for our unannounced games coming in 2014 and beyond. You can stream Xbox: Game On live beginning on June 9 at 9:00 AM PDT with our pre-show coverage on Xbox.com, Xbox Live, and Windows Phone globally. You can also watch Xbox: Game On on Spike TV in the U.S. and Canada at 9:30 AM PDT.

We’re also planning a number of fan-centric events both before and after Xbox: Game On for those fans that are in LA and for those who are watching around the world. Stay tuned for more details on those activities as we get closer to E3!







To celebrate the Titanfall launch, Microsoft Stores want to send you to the next huge event in the industry: E3.

From today through March 16, all Microsoft retail stores will host an online and in-store contest where fans can enter for a chance to receive a trip to the most exciting event in the gaming industry, the Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles June 10-12, where I’ll show you some of the highlights. 

A total of five winners will receive a VIP prize package including round trip airfare for them and a friend to LA, two nights’ hotel stay, a $3,000 Microsoft store gift card, admission to the Xbox press briefing where all the latest Xbox news is announced and new trailers are revealed.

Conan Visits E3 2013

At E3 I had the chance to spend some time with Conan O’Brien and tell him about Xbox One when he dropped by the show to check out the new consoles and games at the show. Sadly, they cut most of our conversation out and focused on Games which is really what E3 is all about…right?
