Where and when to watch every E3 2017 stream in Australia
Cancel your plans and pour the coffee. This is how to catch every big E3 event from the comfort of your lounge.
If this year's E3 manages to top last year's, it will be a show to remember. However, not all of us have the opportunity to fly to LA and experience the show in person. Lucky for us, each big presenter hosts a live stream from the event for you to watch, away from the bustling crowds at the world's first public E3.
This year's show is already gearing up to be a huge one, with over 150 titles confirmed to make an appearance at this year's show and big announcements planned for PlayStation, Nintendo and Ubisoft. You won't want to miss this year's live streams (even if some are at the crack of dawn).
PlayStation Live from E3
PlayStation Live has a lot of ground to cover. With upcoming PlayStation 4 games like Spider-Man, Days Gone and Destiny 2 to cover, it's a wonder how it will have time to announce whatever surprises they have planned.
You can catch PlayStation Live's Media Showcase stream on 13 June at 10:00 am via PlayStation's Twitch channel (below).
We'll be covering PlayStation's E3 conference live on the day.
Nintendo ditches its on-stage presence again this year in favour for a pre-recorded E3 stream. This year's Nintendo Spotlight will focus on Super Mario Odyssey but Nintendo has promised a few surprises as well.
While a new core Pokémon title for Nintendo Switch is off the cards after the announcement of Ultra Sun and Moon and Pokkén Tournament DX, there's still a massive roster of IPs that could make a surprise appearance on the day.
Nintendo's Spotlight stream is an early one, kicking off at 2:00am 14 June (that's a Wednesday). There's also three invitational tournament streams for ARMS, Pokkén Tournament and Splatoon 2 over the following two days.
You'll be able to watch the show live via Nintendo's Twitch channel on the day.

Microsoft at E3 2017
Microsoft's conference this year is all about that Scorpio. The new Xbox powerhouse will finally be fully revealed at this year's event (hopefully with a price tag and release date to boot). In terms of software, we'll likely see Crackdown 3, Forza and something from 343 (Halo).
For Microsoft's sake, we hope they've got a few surprise reveals in the works to launch concurrently with their shiny new console.
You'll be able to catch the reveal at 7:00 am, 12 June (Monday) on the Xbox Twitch channel below.
We'll be covering the event live over at our Microsoft E3 2017 hub on the day.
Bethesda at E3 2017
Bethesda's show last year was hot on the heels of PlayStation for the most exciting show of the year. It also planted the seeds for what we might see this year, with a sly tease of a new Wolfenstein title.
Bethesda has already made waves with a cute little graphic (Bethesda Land) that illustrates all of its current IPs next to two empty plot spaces. People have been going mad picking apart the image for clues but we're so close to the event, we'd hate to have it spoiled now.
You can catch the stream at 2:00 pm, 12 June. That's a Monday (so long, public holiday).
If you can't catch the stream when it airs, head over to our Bethesda at E3 hub to catch up on all the news from the show.
Ubisoft at E3 2017
Ubisoft's E3 stream is probably going to be the most predictable thanks to a series of leaks on three of its biggest would be surprises. We know a knew Assassin's Creed will show (Assassin's Creed Origins according to various leaks), Far Cry 5 was prematurely announced recently and Ubi's Mario and Rabbids crossover is expected to be revealed.
Despite the leaky boat, you'll be able to see Ubisoft's polished reveals at 6:00 am, 13 June (Tuesday) via Ubisoft's Twitch channel.
We'll be watching along and covering the event over at our Ubisoft E3 2017 hub.
Electronic Arts: EA Play
EA is another big contender who has taken to skipping out on the E3 event to throw their own party. The EA Play event will be held at the Hollywood Palladium in California and will feature Star Wars: Battlefront II, FIFA 18, Need for Speed Payback and more.
EA Play will begin 11 June (Sunday) at 5:00 am. The show will be streamed live on EA's website.
