Your E3 2011 Timetable

It’s E3 this coming week and we thought we might be able to help you find the locations of those all important conferences so you can watch the unveiling of different projects as they happen.

So let’s get started. As a few of you may know the conferences all happen at the beginning of E3 during the first 2 days, and first up this year is Microsoft. If you wish to catch it you’ll be able to watch it live streaming on xbox.com. The conference is due to start at 5:30pm (GMT) on Monday so be sure to be prompt. This year we can probably expect appearances from Epic showing off Gears 3, a few more Kinect games to look forward to, updates on games announced previously such as Forza 4 and possibly a new Halo announcement. It’s bound to be fun so be prompt.

Make sure to eat your dinners quickly though because at 8:30 pm (GMT) it’s EA’s turn in the spotlight. Will we see anything from Respawn or Bungie? Who knows, but we will most likely see some more from DICE and Bioware in the forms of Battlefield 3 and Mass Effect 3. (Maybe even some gameplay!) You can catch EA’s conference on EA.com. I hope you aren’t getting tired from all the gaming goodness yet, at 10:30 pm (GMT) Ubisoft is stepping up with some news on Assassin’s Creed Revelations, Ghost Recon, Driver San Fransisco, Rayman and more. Head to ubi.com promptly after EA’s conference to catch more announcements.

Knocking on midnight know and some of you will need to start sleeping, sorry Sony’s conference is next at 1:oo am (GMT) Tuesday morning. We’ll likely hear some short excuses for PSN’s outage and then we can expect to hear some news on NGP including games and maybe it’s official name (PS Vito as has been rumoured perhaps?). We’ll obviously hear more on the PS3 front too. Any new Move games coming? Uncharted 3 updates? We’ll have to wait and see. (Even longer if you’re too tired at this point) Sony will be streaming this to your PS3’s and to Playstation.com at stupid o’clock in the morning.

OK, you can finally have a break now, unless you’re unlucky enough to have school/work in the morning. At least you’re internet connections can rest until 5pm (GMT) for the final major conference, Nintendo’s. Some 3DS updates, Mario a-plenty and a new console to unveil so be sure to check in. What will Nintendo use to get you buying its next home console? We’ll see and have rumours confirmed this Tuesday afternoon at Nintendo.com.

Now of course this isn’t the end of E3. It last until Friday, and there is bound to be news to keep up with so make sure you keep checking those interwebs if you are unlucky enough to not be able to get to E3. A new game for your favourite franchise may get announced!
