We are already on the verge of summer, which means that this year's E3 is upon us. The Electronic Entertainment Expo 2018, also known as E3, will bring together the largest consoles and video game developers on the planet for another year in Los Angeles to announce their most imminent (and future) projects. What will be the new bluff of this year? Will Sony drop any details on the future PS5? What will Nintendo surprise us with this time? Hello, Xbox, are you still there?

Where can we follow all the events and conferences of this year's E3 from?
That is the big question. All the major video game portals and specialized media will have moved to Los Angeles, so we only have to go to our favorite guild websites to be aware of all the announcements that will be produced during the duration of the fair.
We can also follow the lectures through YouTube. Many channels will broadcast developer press conferences live. A good place to start might be the YouTube Live at E3 channel.
