PC Gaming Show at E3: A PC Conference By PC Gamer and AMD

PC Gamer, AMD, and many others join forces to bring the first PC-centric conference to this years E3.

PC gaming had a slump toward the end of the PS2 and Original Xbox era of consoles, and it stayed around the same until a few years ago. Now PC gaming has gone to new heights, buying a system that is capable of gaming is now more affordable than ever.

PC gaming is now getting its very own E3 conference called the PC Gaming Show, it will feature game reveals, updates to already loved games, and "key PC developers" will share their perspectives.

PC Gaming Show is brought to us by the sponsors:

  • AMD
  • PC Gamer
  • Bohemia Interactive
  • Twitch
  • Tripwire Interactive
  • Digital Storm

Who, What, Where, When?

Hosting the event will be Sean 'Day[9]' Plott of StarCraft fame, and will take place at the Belasco Theater, in Los Angeles, on Tuesday June 16th, 2015.

So who is going to be speaking? Because PC isn't a brand and doesn't have any corporation to tie its name too, it must be harder to find people to speak at an event like this, right? Well, not really, the already confirmed presenters are:

  • AMD - of hardware fame.
  • Blizzard Entertainment - of StarCraft and WoW fame.
  • Bohemia Interactive - of Arma fame
  • Cliff Bleszinski - of Boss Key Productions fame.
  • Cloud Imperium Games - of Star Citizen fame.
  • Dean 'Rocket' Hall - of DayZ fame.
  • Devolver Digital - of Hotline Miami fame.
  • Humble Bundle - of amazing indie game deals fame.
  • Heart Machine - of Hyper Light Drifter fame.
  • Paradox Interactive - of Europa Universalis and Magicka fame.
  • Square Enix - of Final Fantasy fame.
  • Tripwire Interactive - of Killing Floor and Red Orchestra fame.
  • And more to be announced.

Twitch is going to handle the live streaming of the event.

In the meantime, I'm wondering why Valve isn't already confirmed to be at the show, this is the best time to announce Half-Life 3.

    I think AMD needs this, they need a little boost in sales and this could be a perfect opportunity to impress some people.

    I agree... they mostly need to step up their game when it comes to CPUs. Their GPUs are fine (just need better OpenGL support).
