At E3 2017, Microsoft’s splashy, neon-soaked press conference will have a meaningful impact on the console industry. The company is expected to unveil the final consumer version of its Project Scorpio device, a new and improved Xbox One that should be capable of native 4K gaming and virtual reality support. How it compares to Sony’s existing PlayStation 4 Pro, and what it means for console gaming in the graphics and performance department, will a big point of discussion at E3 this year.

Microsoft’s press conference this year is a day earlier than usual: 5PM ET / 2PM PT on Sunday, June 11th. It’s also going to be a long one.

While Microsoft has already confirmed that it won’t be talking about VR or its Windows 10 mixed reality headset platform at E3, we will absolutely get details on Scorpio — including possibly its name, pricing, and a release date. The company has even started teasing some key details, including a potential name (Xbox 10S) and release date (October 13th) hidden in YouTube videos released earlier this week. Also on the schedule will be news about upcoming exclusives and the usual updates on long-running franchises and well-known sequels, including a possible glimpse at Halo 6.

Starting time: San Francisco: 2PM / New York: 5PM / London: 10PM / Moscow: 12AM (June 12th) / Beijing: 5AM (June 12th) / Tokyo: 6AM (June 12th) / Sydney: 7AM (June 12th)
