Microsoft's pre-E3 2016 press conference today (13 June 2016) will kick off the biggest day for conferences being held ahead of the week-long trade show in Los Angeles (14-16 June 2016).
All eyes are on what the gaming giant has to announce in regard to the purported new consoles (a slim one and a more powerful one), Gears of War 4 and many of the other exclusives we know about.
The conference begins at 5:30pm BST (6:30pm CEST, 12:30pm EDT, 9:30am PDT), and is expected to run for 90 minutes.
If you're in the US or Canada, you'll also be able to watch the show on Spike TV. Our predictions can be found here, and here are our five hopes for Microsoft's showcase.
