All The Australian Times For E3 2019

We're one broken sleep away from the annual madness of E3. Things have been shaken up a fair bit this year, so here's all the times you need to plan ahead.

The two big keys to remember this year is that Sony won't be holding an E3 conference, and EA won't be holding their traditional presser either. EA has announced that they'll be holding a series of livestreams - so we'll still get all that Jedi Fallen Order footage - instead.

But no Hoop Gawd. RIP.

So there's a few gaps this year. Legendary E3 sorted Cheesemeister3k has pumped out an early version of the E3 press conferences, and there's quite a few extras this year. Tiny Build, UploadVR, the Kinda Funny Showcase and Limited Run will have conferences of their own too.

EA is starting early, as they do, but this year they're holding a half-hour stream on six of their main titles and franchises. It kicks off really early on the Sunday for Australians and Kiwis. Here's the times:

  • Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order: 0230 AEST / 0030 AWST / 0200 ACST / 0430 NZST
  • Apex Legends: 0300 AEST / 0100 AWST / 0230 ACST / 0500 NZST
  • Battlefield 5: 0330 AEST / 0130 AWST / 0300 ACST / 0530 NZST
  • FIFA 20: 0400 AEST / 0200 AWST / 0330 ACST / 0600 NZST
  • Madden NFL 20: 0430 AEST / 0230 AWST / 0400 ACST / 0630 NZST
  • The Sims 4: 0500 AEST / 0300 AWST / 0430 ACST / 0700 NZST

Tuesday is going to be the worst day for schedules - UploadVR kicks off from 0200 AEST / 0130 ACST / 0400 NZST / 0000 AWST, with the PC Gaming Show, Limited Run, Ubisoft, Kinda Funny and Square Enix all following. (PC Gaming Show and Ubisoft won't run over each other this year, which is fantastic.)

And if you're after the Nintendo-specific stuff:

2am on the Saturday. Jesus wept.

If you just want to focus to the larger publishers — and waking up at 2am on Saturday seems unholy (or you could plan to gun through the whole night) — here's when their shows are.

Microsoft: Monday, June 10 0600 AEST / 0400 AWST / 0530 ACST / 0800 NZST

Bethesda: Monday, June 10 1030 AEST / 0830 AWST / 1000 ACST / 1230 NZST

Devolver Digital: Monday, June 10 1200 AEST / 1000 AWST / 1130 ACST / 1400 NZST

PC Gaming Show: Tuesday, June 11 0300 AEST / 0100 AWST / 0230 ACST / 0500 NZST

Ubisoft: Tuesday, June 11 0600 AEST / 0400 AWST / 0530 ACST / 0800 NZST

Square Enix: Tuesday, June 11 1100 AEST / 0900 AWST / 1030 ACST / 1300 NZST

Nintendo: Wednesday, June 12 0200 AEST / 0000 AWST / 0130 ACST / 0400 NZST

We'll update this post as we find out more about when their livestreams are, times for other conferences, and if there's any major changes to the schedule.

Everything Microsoft Announced At E3 2019

The first details on a powerful new Xbox console, release dates for anticipated games like Cyberpunk 2077, and another developer acquired by Xbox Game Studios led Microsoft’s packed slate of announcements for its E3 briefing on Sunday.

    Might check out the Xbox one this year. 5:30 will work in well before leaving for work.

    Can't wait for the E3 tweet-storms to explode, consume the Internet, then die... all in the time before I get home from work, resulting in me being figuratively years out of the loop and puzzled by the only remains: the six-degrees-separated reference memes that will have sprung up in the charred remains.

    2am again for Nintendo. Guess I'll get up a little earlier than normal, wake my son and watch together. He's only 6 but we both enjoy watching these in the morning after they air.

      I don't see the point of stay up for there thing. Like, all they do now is pre-recorded vid. Better off just sleeping.

        Yeah, I wasn't clear. We'll get up a bit earlier than normal and watch it before the day starts. No way I'm getting up to watch it live.

          lol, mean neither. I will just stay up in the end anyway. I have, for the past 3 or so years, watched all the E3 stuff live. It fucks my sleeping up to no end, but being unemployed means I can, so until I get a job, why not? lol

    I'm going to get some decent hours of sleep instead.

    Looking forward to Bethesda.

    Will Todd and Pete show their faces after the Fallout 76 debacle?

    Will they rush out Starfield or ESVI to gain some positive publicity?

    The possibilities are limitless!

    E3 will be interesting, just cause i dont expect much new stuff coming out from the big players.

    I won't be watching the Nintendo Direct at 2am during this year's E3 but I will watch the replay for the Nintendo Direct.
    I hope Banjo and Kazooie get announced as our second DLC for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate because I think it's time that British developer Rare brings Banjo and Kazooie back home to Nintendo and with Crash Team Racing coming out on June 21.
    I hope Activision make this announcement at this year's E3 and bring Spyro Reignited Trilogy to the Nintendo Switch this year.
    That's what I want to see I also want to see Atlus bring us the original Persona 5 on to the Nintendo Switch.
    Once we get all those E3 announcements this year I'll get back to you ASAP.

    Is it just me, or has there been relatively little hype for E3 this year???

      I think its the fact Sony and some others have pulled out. And the general shittiness of the games industry as a whole this year and last.

      Im only really going to watch xbox and Ubisoft. EA will be 75% Sports games so its not even worth watching.

        E3 always tends to be a little depressed the year before new hardware is launched.

          Am i crazy or does it feel like this generation has been shorter than the 360/PS3 generation?

          It doesnt feel like we have had this current generation of consoles that long.

            2013 to 2020 is a pretty standard time frame, if you ignore that the PS4 Pro / Xbox One X didn't totally supplant the base consoles
