YouTube launches E3 streaming hub

For the last 20 years, E3 has been the pinnacle of gaming announcements. Each year, publishers tease and announce some of the biggest titles that we'll see released over the course of the next few years. In addition, many of the biggest console hardware announcements are made at the same time.

Since G4 shut down, there haven't been a lot of good ways to watch the different announcements and presentations. Sometimes the different companies will run their own live streams, but that can be hit-or-miss. So this year, YouTube is taking charge and compiling all of the different video feeds into one easy to find location.

The video streaming site is setting up a special hub for all of the E3 content, which will be available in June. They will be broadcasting live streams for the various press conferences from Sony, Microsoft, EA, and more. You'll also be able to watch the streams later, chat with friends, and vote for your favorite game trailers that are aired during the show.

Coverage will begin on Sunday June 12, and will run throughout the course of the week. We'll also be on-location covering the event, and talking to the various developers and hardware companies that are present.
