The Electronic Entertainment Expo takes place once a year, usually in Los Angeles. For the privileged, this is the opportunity of a lifetime. It is a chance to experience upcoming games and meet people in the industry. Sure, you can watch various live streams on the internet, but nothing beats being there in person. This is my 5th year attending E3. Over the years, I have acquired a great sense of awareness attending this expo. I actually met our fellow PS3BLOG staffers Tosh, Eddie, and Oly at the Sonic SEGA party 2 years ago.
I wanted to talk to you about Style and Etiquette at E3. So, you want to show your love for your console by wearing that PlayStation shirt, or maybe you want to wear that Assassin’s Creed Hoody? There is a time and place to do that, and trust me, you don’t want to be “that guy” at E3 getting all the weird looks because you’re under-dressed for the occasion.
With E3 starting tomorrow, we’re going to try to get all the important conference streams on here, with current ones being available for view on the home page, switching them out after one concludes (unless one runs simultaneously with another). With that said, we’re looking at three of them relevant to PlayStation, unless we get demand for Nintendo and Microsoft conferences as well. To start, EA’s conference takes place at 1PM PDT, followed by Ubisoft’s at 3PM, and Sony’s at 6PM. Be sure to join in on the site chat after the jump!
Where to even start?!The graphically intense demo of Battlefield 4 featured a monstrous escape, huge gun-fights, phenomenal facial animations, an amputation(wait wut) and very little painfully dull dialogue that poisoned Battlefield 3′s single-player. DICE already has a winning formula for multiplayer, but came-out-swinging to prove that with this year’s new game, Battlefield 4, it can create a single-player campaign to match. Moving on, I’d like to point out a couple things I spotted:

Looks like EA sent more invitations out, this time we got a date to mark in our calenders. EA/DICE seems to be aiming for a full-on-guns-blazing-announcement of BF4, on March 26th at 7PM(PDT)/10PM(EST). Proof you say?! Well, your wish is the Internets command:
We’ve all known for quite a while that Battlefield 4 was coming, when EA offered Battlefield 4 beta invites with pre-orders of Medal of Honor: Warfighter in 2012. Which honestly, didn’t do too hot. But, it did shave some sales off the Rockefeller of the FPS world, Call Of Duty. I can’t wait to see what DICE has got for us next-gen. Maybe, we’ll finally get some actually Battle-size-shootouts. 32 vs 32, on the PS4, would be pretty damn smooth. Ah yes, one final thing: Kotaku posted some BF4 game-art. Which gives us our first look at what we can expect, in the next installment of the 10 year-old Battlefield series.

This should get started at 3 p.m. Pacific, 6 p.m. Eastern, 11 p.m. UK. If you find any other live streams, let us know. I’ll update the post with links to them so that we have a backup in case this live stream fails.
Embedded chat after the break.
