For the first time during the Electronic Entertainment Expo there will be a PC Gaming orientated conference, where the gaming industry's top "developers, publishers, hardware companies, press and fans come together to celebrate PC gaming and see what lies in store." Find out more after the jump.
This year's E3 is set to take place in June, from the 16th to the 18th. As with every year, gamers can expect a plethora of gaming related announcements, but there never has been a conference exclusively focused on PC gaming... until now.
On June 16th at around 5PM PDT, the PC Gaming Show will be hosted in the Belasco Theater in Los Angeles, with the entire show being streamed on Twitch and hosted by Sean 'Day 9' Plott of Hearthstone fame, which will "... feature new game reveals, updates on beloved series, and perspectives from key PC developers."
Judging from the announcement page, it looks as though there really will be some 'key' PC developers attending and speaking at this conference, with perhaps the most notable developer among this list being Blizzard Entertainment, who last attended anything resembling an E3 conference all the way back in 2007.
Hardware company AMD and PC Gamer will be hosting the conference, and the conference is being seen by its hosts as something that is long overdue: "we’re living in a golden age of PC gaming, but unlike other platforms the PC has no format holder, no marketing department, and—until now—no event during E3 week purely devoted to it."
What do you think of this conference announcement? Is it something that is long overdue? Let us know in the comments!
