Posted By: juster - Friday, July 11, 2008 11:45 AM

As you might imagine, E3 is a very special time of year here at the G4 offices... You’ll never see a giddier bunch of nerds and geeks in your whole life as in the week leading up to E3.  With that in mind, and ahead of the official G4 press release, we wanted to give you an idea of what to expect from our E3 coverage will be this year.  With over 17 hours of live coverage on G4 – including COMMERCIAL FREE coverage of the Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo press conferences – its going to be quite a week. And if that’s not enough, you can count on the G4tv.com team to bring you even more: Every single trailer and screenshot, live streaming coverage of all press conference (not just the big three but all the rest), special editions of The MMO Report, Sessler’s Soapbox and Freestyle 101, and more.  Oh yeah, and we’ll be launching an HD version of our video player so you can watch high res versions of all of your favorite E3 trailers. Bamph!

dude lucky711 i think they had to switch face breaker from a Thursday demo to a Wednesday demo, and then spore from Wednesday to Thursday. i was confused about this too till i checked the schedule so i don't know it might be today it might be tonight...but if not we will just have to wait till the game is released and that's not that long away. they didn't forget i can guarantee you that.

I am very pissed off at you G4!! YOU FORGOT A GAME IN YOUR DEMOS!!!! You forgot all about SPORE and I( and millions of others who are made at you) want to know why you left out SPORE when you said you will demo it right up above!!!!! And in my 'info' on my TV is said ''SPORE''!! Now please G4, put SPORE in on July 17th E3 demo show or if you cutted out SPORE, please post it on your site to show us all the demo that you might have done! Thank You!

On my TV it says:

Monday:
E3 Live Preview Show (1:00-3:00)

Tuesday:
E3 (12:00-4:00)
E3 (6:00-9:00)

and that's all i can see right now.
so far i think i'm only missing the 5:30 Ubisoft conference, which sucks! Ubisoft makes awesome games!

Posted by iGotMy360LastWeek - Sunday, July 13, 2008 9:23 PM
is this the schedule for canada because i checked 7:ooPM on my satelite and it just says Attack of the Show, and I'm guessing the 6:00 press conferences are only online. that kinda sucks cuz i really wanted to see some stuff on skate. 2 by EA. :(

OK, I have loved G4's coverage of E3 for the past 3 or so years (aside from the commercials on the pressers last year, but it sounds like they have fixed that this year.)

My biggest question is, the coverage has been live to both the east and west coast in previous years, so is it going to be that way again this year, too? The way the guide data is showing up, the west coast is going to have to watch the press events tape delayed...

Damn it FANBOYS this isnt about whether the 360 or PS3 rules, its about E3 and all the great games coming out that were all going to play. The 360 has great games and the PS3 has great games. Both pratically have the same games except for a few exclusives. E3 on G4 is going to be AWESOME to see all the trailers and live demo's. Theirs a lot of GREAT GAMES coming for both console systems. Were all winners, especially me since i have both consoles. HAHAHA

Posted by PS34ever - Thursday, July 10, 2008 6:40 PM
PS3 has the best graphics ever, not like that peice ov crap wii and 360. 360 sucks and the games r the worst i've seen, compared 2 the PS3. Same with the games for the 360. PS3 4ever everything else is for losers.

Posted by 36032297 - Thursday, July 10, 2008 6:29 PM
vote xbox360 listen the ps3 has hoable graphics and the controllers are all the same and the games are not even fun!wat the heck the thing sucks i now some of you will disagre with me but face it.and the wii is a terible system and the graphics are like a game boys or should i say gay boy the wii is just gay and the ps3 xbox360 forever!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As Adam gets all get about events like this, so am i. I can't wait. Have Wed. and Thursday off of work as my two days off, and i'm really glad i do. Don't even care that i have to work the whole weekend. The game i'm looking forward to seeing actual gameplay the most is Fallout 3.

Posted by beggars123 - Thursday, July 10, 2008 3:06 PM
man, i cant wait till Fable 2 i saw some videos online and its 10x's better than the original Fable. You can buy everything and become mayor, king, and all that kind of stuff looks great.

HOLY CRAP

Posted by EricBowman - Thursday, July 10, 2008 12:38 PM
Gears of War 2 will shatter the universe. Just watch the gameplay vid and your eyes will bleed because they're not worthy of seeing such greatness.

What?!? No Infinite Undiscovery love? Is there not going to be a demo for it available or what? Did SquEnix also pull out of the ESA?

Posted by g4xplayfan - Wednesday, July 09, 2008 10:57 PM
S-E will disappoint E3 since FFXIII is not even listed on their lineup, thus EA takes the spot for garnering and actually appreciating their E3 audience. Unlike S-E which basically snubs this event for TGS.

i'm happy that the press conferences will be streamed online so i can watch it at work. hooray!! and when i get home i'm glued to the tv.

Posted by Genesis19 - Wednesday, July 09, 2008 6:26 AM
I'm a dissapointed that SE isn't in the online stuff, they are known for their amazing cut scenes, and in HD, why would they pick EA, which usually only does annoying sports games (sry if you like them, I think they are boring, aside from Techmo Bowl)? Anyway, the Microsoft announcement with Bungie will be very interesting and I'd like to see what Nintendo has in store. ost of the games on those lists are PS3 and 360, so does Nintendo have a black horse up their sleeve like Twighlight Princess?

Posted by The1stMJC - Tuesday, July 08, 2008 11:34 PM
I want Kingdom Hearts3, but feel that it could be a let down. I want trophy support for games like MGS4 announced and MLB the Show. And Home given a date. I am a PS3 fanboy, but damn Sony can lift u up and than kick down at the same damn time.!

Posted by kobebryantyanic - Tuesday, July 08, 2008 9:41 PM
killzone2, resistance2, i like that. god of war3 will be a surprise title at the sony press conference. When the trailer hit, people will be like (wooooooow). But for the third time straight, sony will once again win e3.

as far as best of e3 out of that list I think LBP will be in the running, but will probably go to gears...

Posted by SeitouKoichi - Tuesday, July 08, 2008 4:36 PM
Uh, G4 gents, where's the Square Enix Conference streaming live? Oh wait, you're showing EA's conference in that time slot. Disappointing. Oh well, beggars can't be choosers.

@Jaredb2 - the on-air content will still be in SD for now. The HD content online and on VOD will be mostly game trailers, with some custom previews/ gameplay packages.

Posted by Jaredb2 - Tuesday, July 08, 2008 1:41 PM
So lemme get this straight. G4 is going to have HD player set up on their website so people can watch this in HD and their VOD stuff is in HD as well, but there is still no hint at G4TV HD. Come on guys get with the program!!

Posted by DamienHell - Tuesday, July 08, 2008 1:16 PM
wait so I can watch the same stuff on my computer thats on the TV (THE EXACT SAME STUFF) cause I don't want to miss anything, but getting the TV for 5 days straight is going to be hard
