Someone ran a poll recently (I think it may have been Kinda Funny) about whether or not you would pay to go to E3 next year based on what this year was like, and it was honestly pretty telling. I believe a good 73% or so said "no," and that was based on a sampling of 1,000 votes at that point. Honestly, I don't blame people for feeling that way. Apparently the ESA (the association that manages E3) didn't properly prepare for the amount of people that were coming, which led to the expo hall being packed to the brim. Both media and paying fans alike had trouble moving to and from different areas, and the latter were pretty much relegated to waiting 2 hours or more to play demos for games, which, if they only went 1 or 2 days, pretty much means they only got to play anywhere from 5-10 games total. That's not to say the show was a total bust in and of itself; just that the experience of it for a paying fan might not be all that's cracked up to be, especially since you can better take in all of the announcements and news right from your home. Anyhow, what would you do? Would you pay to go next year if you could? Or would you wait for certain assurances first (better preparation for the masses of people and the like)?
Jason Clement posted a article in MicrosoftMicrosoft has officially announced its plans for a press conference at E3 2017, and this year it's coming a bit earlier than usual. An entire day, in fact. This marks the first year that one of the big three console manufacturers are doing their press conference on a Sunday, which will be June 11 at 2pm PT this year. The teaser graphic attached to the announcement makes it pretty clear that Project Scorpio, first announced last year as the "most powerful gaming console yet", will be talked about more in-depth, and possibly get a full reveal. Rumors have indicated for a while that Microsoft is aiming for a 2017 release for the console, so an E3 reveal makes a lot of sense if they're aiming for a November launch. If it does indeed turn out to be a full reveal, expect to hear a more finalized name for the console, as well as whether or not Microsoft plans for it to be its next generation console or if it is only a half-step between Xbox One and whatever is coming after.
