Anyways, SONY ought to broadcast their E3 conference and all related content via their Crackle app. Talk about stealth attack :smileywink:


Sorry but this is no rumor, gametralers and spiketv plus another one refuse to show it...

Now how is that a rumor when all they will show is the xboxone and ea conferences?

I think it's not, it has been on every year until spiketv took over, g4 really has went down hill as a gamer channel...


Well.... G4 no longer exists.

It doesn't surprise me that MS would do this. It's probably the same reason why on my CBS station there was absolutely no mention of the PS4 conference in February, but there was a 5 minute segment on the Xbox One. I switched to NBC, on FEB 20 after I saw that CBS wasn't having any news, and there it was. Not a 5 minute segment, but at least the system was mentioned during the entertainment segment of the news.

I assume most gamers will watch / read E3 coverage on the net anyway. That is where the real "ratings" are won these days.

Plus, I never cared for Spike TV's E3 coverage. I don't know what it is, but I just don't like the GameTrailers crew that covers it each year. preferred G4TV. I'd only watch the exclusive MS press conference on Spike, then turn it back to G4.

You're both right. "G4" still exists, but will soon be the "Esquire" channel in a few months. This was announced last year.

But, all of G4's original programming has been dead for awhile. :smileysad:

Yeah because the current owners don't know how to run a gamer/computer tech channel. Sorry they ran it into the ground....

Actually home is only having the booth event.. Not the video of the conference.. Because their booth in home doesn't open until the 11th, and their conference is on the 10th at 8:30pm...

So they will not be showing the conference either in home.. I think something is wrong with no one showing the sony event..

Not even sony is showing the event is a little weird...

You do realize that Sony is streaming the E3 Press event on blog.us.playstation.com and us.playstation.com, right?
