E3 gets rolling today with Microsoft keynote

John Moe Jun 4, 2012

The whole big ding-dang video gaming world is in Los Angeles today for E3, the enormous gaming expo. Matter of fact, it’s more than just game makers, it’s big tech companies, the entertainment industry as a whole, and tons more. Microsoft will be there delivering a keynote address at 9:30 local time. Presumably not the entire company but maybe a few people from it. While it’s doubtful that the company will reveal the Xbox 720 (or whatever next generation console it’s offering), it’s very possible that we’ll hear more about Smart Glass, the new system of viewing/playing content seamlessly over multiple screens.
