E3 2016 is just around the corner, so here’s our handy guide to the times and dates of this year’s press conferences.
The big guns have all announced their E3 2016 media briefing plans. There are no major surprises this year other than Nintendo taking another sharp turn. With only one game at the show – the new Legend of Zelda – they are dedicating their efforts to covering Link’s latest adventure via an extended Nintendo Treehouse livestream.
Elsewhere, Microsoft and Sony are in their usual slots and Bethesda are holding an E3 press conference for the second year in a row. EA may not be at the E3 party per se but they are just down the road and will also be revealing their EA Play line-up on Sunday morning.
Let the predictions begin…

We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. But it's hard to do that in the current financial climate. If you'd like to help us fund these aims, you could always buy the team a cup of coffee.
