E3 2019 starting today in Los Angeles

The Electronic Entertainment Expo, known as E3 for short, is the biggest showcase for video game software, hardware and new game tech innovations.

E3 kicks off today, 11 June, at the Los Angeles Convention Center in Los Angeles, and will run until 13 June. The event will see some of the biggest gaming companies come together to unveil new technology and show off the fun things they’ve been working on.

Most companies will live stream their own press conferences, and many have dedicated their own websites to stream, like Nintendo and Microsoft’s Xbox. Electronic Arts (EA) won’t be doing a traditional press conference. Instead, it will host its own show called EA PLAY, and will stream all its content on its YouTube and Twitch channels.

There is some speculation that a new Xbox may be on its way. The rumors of Xbox Scarlett, the next-generation of Xbox consoles, are rampant, but there’s no telling if the company will be ready to reveal an actual console.

Nintendo has already released information about the new Pokemon Sword and Shield games coming later this year.

One unlikely face that will be at E3 is Netflix, which will appear at a panel. The streaming company is expected to discuss turning its hit show Stranger Things into a game.
