Okay, because I guess the OP is kind of ambiguous, here is what "spoiler-free" means in this context.

Fyre is keeping the OP links to the streams and stuff clean, so you can watch them if you want to without having them spoiled. I don't know what kind of person gets angry about having a keynote "spoiled" for them but whatever floats your boat.

You can post anything in this thread about the keynotes or other E3 news/announcements.

You do not have to use spoiler tags

As mentioned earlier, don't make joke announcements because it's fucking stupid

The Non-Spoiler E3 Conference Stream Links and Such.

In this thread, I will make the first posts be only about one company. Everything will be set up in any way possible where I can link you to a replay on Youtube or a Live stream without spoiling where possible. Just like how Macrumors has it's spoiler-free news article for Apple keynotes.

Note: This is not to prevent people from hearing news. This is so people that can't watch them live can watch them on their own time without knowing what is coming up. Thank you.

    It wasn't killed, just restructured. It's a lot smaller now. There is no big showroom where hundreds or thousands of people are crowding the place. You'll have the conferences and the showings of games are more private now, such as in hotels.

    So people who can't be home at the time can watch the keynotes without knowing what's coming up.

    In other words, my posts at the start won't reveal anything. I'll do the grunt work of getting past all the big reveal stories on the websites and linking directly to their replay/live streams. People like doing this for the WWDC and Apple keynotes so I thought I'd try to do this and see how it goes.

    Because there's no way in hell one thread is going to work for all 3 conferences.

    Also G4 is promising commercial free again this year, even though last year they blew it.

    You'd be surprised, k.

    Last year was tame, nothing really big was announced.

    2006 had a fuck ton of stuff though, Sony's meltdown, surprise Brawl tailer with Snakeoo, MGS4 sneak peak, etc, etc.

    E3 can be amazing.

    I know they're really exciting. I just prefer reading summaries myself. That way I can go look for videos of the stuff that sounds interesting.

    I guess seeing that particular sony presenation live would have been pretty awesome.

    I wonder if we're going to see anything as bad as some of the choice bits from Sony's 2007 presentation. Who was that dude who opened up their show last year - you know, the guy who was tinkering around with Home for a good part of the show, kinda' wimpy-sounding, made a gigantic ass of himself with that whole "hello, ladies" bit? I wonder if Sony's keeping him off-stage this year.

    So, I've never really looked into this before, but are the presentations or whatever available somewhere online on a video stream? Or how does all this work exactly, is it only on G4? Might take a look at some stuff if it's online somewhere, as I don't really have access to G4.

    An E3 is simply not an E3 unless you can have two pages in the span of ten seconds filled with obscenities, size=7 OMGs, and cock eating. Like a gigantic psychological release for all of the repressed antics of our gaming Ids.
