Can’t make it to the upcoming video game mecca that is the E3 Expo 2010? Not to worry, MTV Networks has you covered. According to this recent announcement, MTV is partnering with Microsoft to deliver coverage of the event’s key moments, including the premiere of Project Natal, the innovative controller-free add-on for Xbox 360.
MTV properties will also cover Xbox 360 game announcements, world premieres and other breaking news throughout the conference.
But wait, it gets even better: Cirque du Soleil will be there too, turning E3’s media circus into a real one. Apparently, the Cirque du Soleil performers will be helping to introduce Natal, which captures body motions via sensors and a camera and translates those into in-game actions. That should be interesting!
On Monday June 14th, Spike TV will cover E3 media briefings and game launches live at 10:30 AM PDT. On Tuesday, June 15th, MTV will cover Natal’s launch starting at 12:30 PM PDT. That coverage will be rebroadcast on Nick at Nite, mtvU, MTV Hits and Logo at 6 PM PDT later that day. Also, MTV Networks’ GameTrailers.com will provide live, high-definition video streams of both these events and more.
Or if you must be there in person, E3 will be held at the Los Angeles Convention Center from June 13th to 18th.
