E3 2019: Singapore-friendly conference schedules, and what you can expect

Yes people, it’s that time of the year again when we sacrifice our sleep and stay up late for E3.
 
Also known (and not referred to at all) as the Electronic Entertainment Expo, the annual affair in Los Angeles remains one of the world’s most-watched trade events in the video game industry. Why shouldn’t it be? Video game announcements, new trailers, sneak previews, hardware news, and other fun stuff get shown off during the course of the event — a chance for publishers and companies to flex about what they’ve got in the works. 

Of course, not all of us have the luxury of being able to attend E3 (we’re still waiting for an invite) for real next week. Not that we need to either, considering the conferences held by major presenters like Microsoft, Ubisoft, Bethesda, and more are all live-streamed for gamers around the world to catch. Speaking of which, we’ve got the live-stream schedule translated from PDT/EDT to Singapore time to save you the trouble. 

Before we get into that though, let’s never forget that cringe-worthy as hell 2010 Konami conference, courtesy of YouTuber Crowbcat.
