Welcome to our live blog coverage of Microsoft’s E3 2017 Press Event
Microsoft will likely come out swinging this year, as they’ve largely been under the shadow of Sony’s PS4 juggernaut for the last few years. We got some hints at yesterday’s EA event as to the direction today’s event will take, as we’ll definitely see more of Bioware’s new Anthem title and the graphics capabilities of the new Scorpio hardware. In fact, it’s going to be a Scorpio-heavy conference, and the company will have to make their strongest case for the beefy Xbox One refresh.
Thanks for joining us today! I’m Mike Dunn, Executive Producer & Editor-at-Large. Our away team will be joining us live from the event, while a few of us are at home, just like you. The event starts at 2 PM PDT, but lets get some quick introductions of who’s posting before we start talking predictions:

Hello everyone tuning in, I’m Sean.

Ron Burke 1:36 PM
I agree, Mike. I suspect we will see either that, or an open API to support Vive and Rift.

Mike Dunn 1:37 PM
Well, they have an agreement with Microsoft already, as the xbox one controller that came with my Rift can attest

A Kay Purcell 1:38 PM
The Fan Fest people all have customized shirts that say “I witnessed the most powerful console” on the back.

Sean Anthony 1:39 PM
Have they finally created a weapon to surpass Metal Gear?!

Ron Burke 1:42 PM
We will know after this 45 minute cutscene, Sean. ;)

Ron Burke 1:44 PM
I spotted Yves Guillemot, CEO of Ubisoft and a whole slew of Ubi folks here. I suspect they might have something to talk about for Scorpio
