It’s clusterf**k Monday as not one, not two, but three major press conferences are all being held today to promote some big announcements in the world of consumer tech.
Both Microsoft’s Xbox One and Sony’s Playstation 4 will hold media launch events at the E3 gaming expo in the next few hours where details on the launch games for the new console systems are to be announced.
Microsoft has to focus on games to win back the hardcore gamers that have not taken too kindly to last month’s launch event, a PR snafu which only seemed to care about the XB1’s Smart TV features. Sony meanwhile has to show us the physical box, answer some key lingering questions about used games and connectivity, and showcase more of its launch game line-up. Both also have to start talking price points.
If that weren’t enough, Apple also holds its WWDC 2013 keynote speech shortly. The new version of Mac OSX and some hardware surprises are expected to be presented to the masses.
