Monday, June 6th at 10 AM PST
Microsoft has confirmed that they will hold their annual E3 press conference at 10a AM Monday, June 6th 2011 at the USC Galen Center. Sony’s previously announced press conference will follow later that day. It is expected that this time around Microsoft will be holding a more traditional press conference, rather than what we saw last year with the Kinect-focused event.

It is expected that Microsoft will be focused on software this year, and it is unlikely that the company will be showing off any new hardware. As for the software, we expect a number of announcements to center around the second big wave of expected Kinect titles. Microsoft is also expected to focus on a number of the exclusive offerings for the Xbox 360.

Microsoft will have its hands full this year, as it is expected that the company will have to compete with the details regarding Sony’s new NGP platform and Nintendo’s expected announcement of a new console successor to the Wii. What exactly Microsoft will be countering with this year at E3 is unknown, but we know that they will have a few announcements to make, and maybe even a price drop on the Xbox 360 platform.
