It's always nice to see major networks giving attention to our quaint, little multi-billion dollar industry. Case in point, MTV Networks will be airing Microsoft's two press conferences during E3 this year.
The first is the premiere of Project Natal, which will be viewable in its entirety on MTV on June 15 at 3:30 p.m. ET, with a repeat airing on Nick at Nite, mtvU, MTV Hits and Logo, at 9 p.m. ET that evening. The premiere will include a mysterious performance by Cirque du Soleil, as well as the first look at new games and features for Project Natal.
The second is the Microsoft Media Briefing, which will air live on Spike TV on Monday, June 14 at 1:30 p.m. ET. The content of the briefing is currently unknown, but expect the focus to be on new non-Project Natal-related games and upgrades to the 360 dashboard. More "Gears of War 3" footage seems like a solid bet.
In addition, both events will be viewable live, as they happen, on GameTrailers.com. I think video games have finally made it! Oh, "Modern Warfare 2" was the biggest entertainment release of 2009? Nevermind.
