A reminder has been posted in regards to Microsoft's E3 2014 Xbox One and Xbox 360 press conference. According to a report from IGN on June 6, the media briefing will be taking place during the morning of June 9. The console manufacturer has set up numerous methods to watch the press conference live from Los Angeles.
Microsoft is planning to start the event on 9:30 a.m. PST. According to the Major Nelson blog, however, a 30-minute pre-show is going to lead into the press conference. Those with the Spike TV channel will be able to watch it live. Otherwise, free live streams will be made available on Windows Phone, Xbox Live, Xbox.com as well as other devices, services and websites.
Microsoft has already revealed a portion of its software lineup for E3 2014. The company will be showing off "Halo 5: Guardians," "Froza Horizon 2" and "Sunset Overdrive." However, "Quantum Break" was previously announced to be shown off at the GamesCom event instead. The third-person shooting action-adventure title is now due to come out sometime in 2015.
The company's press conference is the first of four major media briefings on June 9. The others are Electronic Arts, Ubisoft and Sony Computer Entertainment. Similar to last year, Nintendo won't be holding a press conference and will, instead, focus on several smaller digital events.
Microsoft previously confirmed that the price of the Xbox One will be dropped to $399.99 on the same day as the Kinect camera is no longer included with the package. The console has been trailing the PS4 in terms of hardware sales since both products were released late last year. The Xbox One is also coming out in other countries later this year. As a result, E3 2014 is going to be a big event for Microsoft. An image advertising the event from the official Xbox Facebook page can be seen near the top of this article.
