I definitely want to watch Nintendo's, because they are going to be showing off more WiiU stuff. So far as Microsoft and Sony go...I dunno. I'll probably watch Sony's, but I've kinda lost interest in everything Microsoft has been doing since they started doing all this Kinect nonsense. Last year's Microsoft conference was a snooze fest, and I don't expect this one to be much better.
Absolutely. I try to consume as much as the E3 experience as possible. I love seeing all of the live press conferences and show room floor coverage and then listening to the bombcast at night for the recap of the day. If I don't have time to watch it live, I always make time later on to watch the archival coverage of the games I care about. Gamespot is actually great at showing off the games in their booth and then archiving it all afterward. E3 is the only reason I go to their site anymore to be honest.
This year is going to be an slow one, unfortunately. It's sort of the calm before the storm if you will. Regardless, I'm still super excited about it. I'm a bit of an E3 addict.
I like watching it when I can, so if I can I probably will. Maybe not watch it directly, but have a stream/show thing playing. Though it is nice to pick out what you want from archives so you don't have to sit through stuff you don't care about.
No, I was going to watch when Valve said they had a new game to announce but now there is no point. This year seems to be about Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo trying to explain to everyone why they should buy their outdated hardware from 2005 - 2006.
Definitely! Want to see if Sony has something new up there sleeve and I do want to see new WiiU stuff out of Nintendo. I also want to see what other games third party companies will reveal at E3 this year! Please Sega, give us Total War: Rome 2 already!
I never watch conferences, because those are always boring wastes of time despite the fact that they are theoretically dishing out hot new announcements. I always follow what happens at E3 though. It's just one quick trip to the internet later that day gets me all the good news and trailers I need.
I'm expecting Microsoft to have nothing but third parties and Sony to completely flop again.. but I'll be watching anyway. Mainly for Nintendo. The Wii U should be interesting to see and hopefully they pull out something special for the 3DS.
I usually take those days off and make an event out of it. I love the vibe and energy that game enthusiasts bring with them. It is the newest form of media and hasn't been beaten down by tradition, so I'm always surprised by something that happens at E3.

I'm not going to assume everyone will watch it. I don't think just because you love games, you're into E3. I think there are a lot of people that do, but not everyone. Also, there are some people that don't care to watch it, but those same people will probably want to read about it.@StealthRaptor said:
Why is there no "Yeah, but I won't enjoy it" option?
People always ask the "where's this option?", that's why other is there. I nor anyone can make every possible choice. So, sorry.
Who would answer no? It's our super bowl!Well, E3 this year at least is going to be pretty weird. I don't think there will be any huge surprises, and unless you are super into WiiU there's not much in the way of new stuff.
This year's E3 will probably be a lot more low-key, so I'm planning to have people in my house on and off during the week while it's on. Not sure if I'll hook up the gaming rig to stream GameSpot in HD or if I'll let G4 handle everything, though. I hate G4, but it's less work to just turn on my cable box.
I'll watch it, but it seems like the last couple of years have been pretty bad. Plus, I have a hard time watching things that are embarrassing, so E3 tends to be pretty hard to watch in that regard. Sometimes I have to stop watching part of the way through because the execs and people on stage are trying way too hard to sell things that look like complete garbage.
The fucking conferences had so many hilarious moments. Also, I called the name of the Wii-U in a joke over Skype while me and some buddies watched together. We laughed because it was such a stupid name. Then we just yelled "NO, HE' JOKING, THAT'S NOT REAL. IT WAS A JOKE, IM SORRY!
Such a crazy question! Of course I will watch and follow E3! ^^^ It's a little special for me though since I'm actually writing and live-podcasting about the stuff on my game site BUT even if I didn't have to do that I would follow E3 cause it's one of the years coolast moments for any gaming interrested person. The nice thing with living in Sweden is that E3 happens during the evening to the night. Quite good times even for someone that works regular hours.
