As you can see the list is staggering, and that is only the games that are definitely at the show.  There are still the new titles that will be unveiled as part of the publishers’ conferences, which starts in tradition with Microsoft going first.  Following on the same day are Ubisoft, EA and Sony.  Better than reading this, here’s a small graphic showing you the order and times of the major publisher conferences, with Konami having already done theirs as a pre-produced piece, and Activision as usual deciding to have a private conference with no live stream.

As you can see, that’s a busy Monday, with conferences proceeding throughout the day.  On the other hand, June 6 is the media day anyway, so it’s expected for the majority of conferences to be situated then, with just the one by Nintendo taking place on the Tuesday, when the show is open to the public.  As with regular E3 occurrences, there have already been accidental leaks.  Last year included leaks such as the Microsoft Kinect and Sony blunders such as Mass Effect 2 on the PS3 and Killzone 3.  This trend continues in 2011, with someone at Microsoft having accidentally leaked Halo 4 and a Halo: Combat Evolved HD version.

A shame, but I’m sure there’s plenty more news and surprises to come from E3 2011, so let the event unfold and let us see what there is in store!
