Okay folks, with less than 24 hours until the press conferences kick off with a bang, E3 is right around the corner and the excitement (at least on my end) is palpable. For your convenience (and to give me something to do so I quit annoying my family), here is a master list of all of the major conferences, their times, and where you can watch them. If you have any questions, feel free to shoot us a line!
(Also, all of the times will be listed as US Pacific (PST); to find out when the conferences will be taking place in your time zone, please go here, choose “US/Pacific” in the From Time Zone column, and then find your time zone in the To Time Zone column and convert!)
