E3 officially starts this Tuesday but tomorrow Sony, Microsoft, Ubisoft and EA will be holding their press conferences where you can expect to hear about all the massive new titles and hardware. Nintendo will hold their event on the first official day of the conference. E3 is held in sunny Los Angeles, CA, ‘merica – which means a late night for gaming fans from this side of the Atlantic.

Save your energy and stock-up on the Red Bull for Sony’s mammoth event. You can watch it live on the US or EU PlayStation Blog and even in the event space in PlayStation Home! Of course, IGN (partnered with YouTube), Gamespot and Game Trailers will also be live-streaming the show. Sony have told attendees to reserve a 5-hour slot for their event, giving it an ending time of 6am! I wouldn’t actually expect it to last that long but it should be a big-un.
