    They should dump videos on YouTube Premiere then follow up with Live Streaming Show afterwards.

    I think they want to do it in the Nokia theater (is it the MS theater now ? ) and make it like their E3 conference but with no studio audience or very limited studio audience. I expect it towards the end of July , maybe around the 20th to the 25th. Wait for more restrictions to open up. Have light press there also

    Drop some gameplay bombs and don't be boring. This isn't hard.

    They've posted all six of those ID@xbox spotlight videos up. They're trailers with voiceovers from the Devs. Nice format to use for indie games and it's ultimately the more interesting E3 stuff for me.

    (perhaps would have been better to wait until after the big July event. Would be a shame if these get lost)

    Some seriously good titles in there.

    I really want to try a couple of these. The deck building RPG is pretty cool. (Black Book)

    Foregone looks incredible as well.

    Paradise Lost: that's gotta be unreal engine.

    Didn't bother me too much at the time, but don't think I can put myself through it again even with their analysis.

    Well that was a better show than May. I can see why they split up the videos, but I can't help but feel they should have had a single long one not that it really matters?

    I don't know!?

    Those videos are really slick, good production values, informative, to the point and keep a good pace.

    I really hope that is the sort of thing they are going to do for their July event.
    At least it won't have Aaron Greenberg on webcam:

    I am taking that as a good sign! :p

    I thought there was supposed to be something in June as well? Something hardware oriented.

    Would probably make sense for this game to have ti's own thread, but then again not sure how many people will play it.

    Lots of buzz about July 23 being the current planned date for the big showcase.

    I wonder if they would be willing to let people play some Series X games through Xcloud...
    They would have to limit availability a bit, of course, use some sort of lottery selection or something.

    Doesn't really matter, it could be done different ways.

    I think that technically this is the first Series X game officially announced

    Also coming to PS5. On the Playstation trailer (identical footage) it said it was from the PC version. Guess they didn't bother on the Xbox trailer as it also shows Win10 at the end.

    Scorn and The Medium have been announced as Series X / PC only.
