Want to know what the most important day is in June for gaming? There are a few contenders for the crown what with E3 happening but there is one day that stands above all others. The 10th of June.

So what’s so important about the 10th of June? Well it was on this day back in 1793 that the first public zoo was opened in Paris. In 1847 the Chicago Tribune started up on this day and in 1915 the Girls Scouts were founded on the 10th of June.

But all of those significant events pale in comparison to June 10th 2013.

On this day we are going to see not one, not two but 4 E3 press conferences held on the same day.

With Sony confirming their date the day now looks like this

  1. Microsoft – 9:30 PST
  2. Ubisoft – 13:00 PST
  3. EA – 15:00 PST
  4. Sony – 18:00 PST

So when we wake up at 6am on the 11th of June all 4 press conferences would have taken place and we’ll be in a much better position to predict who is going to dominate this holiday season.

      Think Nintendo are being smart. Why spend a fortune on E3 when all the attention will go to MS & Sony with their next gen stuff? Having their own conference later will mean they’re more likely to be judged on their own merits instead of being compared to MS & Sony.

    • BinaryPixie

      LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL! well played sir ;)

  • OVG OfflineVideoGamer

    Microsoft = SOCIAL media
    UBISOFT = SOCIAL Uplay
    EA = SOCIAL broken servers
    SONY = SOCIAL buttons

    Nintendo = Behind the shed having a sneaky smoke while playing the 3DS with the schoolkids. KEEPING IT REAL.

      • Deon Steyn

        Someone does not agree… Like a silent fart. You don’t hear his opinion you just smell it.

        • OVG OfflineVideoGamer

        • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

          Lol

        • Lourens Jordaan

          I disagree with you there. Why start a debate when you can put a silent fist up in the air?

          • Deon Steyn

            This is true, but I am still curios why.

      Um. Um.

      I never got all the girls. So no Microsoft.

      No foreign exchange anything.

      No online gaming, so no EA

      Never had a black briefcase (at school, ok?). Everyone was always round my house. So no Sony

      Never had a sneaky smoke while playing 3ds.

      So. WHAT AM I DOING? WHO AM I?

      • Deon Steyn

      • OVG OfflineVideoGamer

    This will be huge this year with the new consoles being shown off. Single player exclusives will be key I reckon as the market is already saturated with online titles..
