by Matt Miller on Jun 13, 2015 at 11:30 AM

If ever there was a week to pay attention to the video game world, this one is it. E3 press conferences get going tomorrow, and the show floor opens on Tuesday. We’ve spent the weeks leading up to the show writing up predictions, wish lists, and details about what we expect to see from the show. Click on the links below to get caught up before things shift into high gear.

Then come back tomorrow as we kick off our official coverage of what promises to be a big E3 year.

The Giant E3 2015 Games List

Take a look at our comprehensive list of games we hope to see at this year's show.

E3 Predictions 

Sony

We consider the possibility of a PS4 price drop, and the likelihood of some strong reliance on third-party support

Microsoft

Will the Xbox One dashboard get an overhaul? And what might we learn about Gears of War?

Nintendo

We expect a doubling down on Amiibos, and some acknowledgment of the early success of Splatoon through the revealing of new content for the game.

Third Party and PC

Fallout 4 is coming, but what will we learn about the hotly anticipated title? Plus, we consider the likelihood of Dark Souls III.

Making The Grade

How Sony Can Improve On Last Year

The makers of the PS4 need some more first-party properties on display, and The Last Guardian could help to fill the niche.

How Microsoft Can Improve On Last Year

Halo 5 needs to come out swinging, and Microsoft needs to show off its additional development talent, like what's going at Rare.

How Nintendo Can Improve On Last Year

It's time for some concrete release dates from the house that Mario built, as well as an acknowledgment of fan desire for new classic Metroid.

Wishlists

Fallout 4

We hope Bethesda overhauls dialogue, but holds on to the excellent V.A.T.S. system.

Starfox

New detail on the universe of the game would be welcome, but can we skip on the motion controls?

Mirror’s Edge Catalyst

An open world (within limits) and new running options at street level are among our top desires.

Kingdom Hearts III

Is it too much to ask for a clearer story? And let's get everyone caught up from whatever portable entries they may have missed.

Gears of War

Let the franchise exclusively embrace new-gen systems, and introduce a new cast to carry the story forward.

The Pre-E3 Game Informer Show Podcast

We discuss Metal Gear Solid V, Batman: Arkham Knight, and go into additional detail on our E3 predictions.

E3's Confirmed No Shows

We highlight some of the games that we wish were coming to E3, but that publishers have said they have no plans to present.

Conference Schedule

Keep our schedule bookmarked throughout the week so you don't miss out on any big news, and check back in during each show for live commentary and analysis.
