“E3 is the world’s largest gaming show,” read the email, “and the place where we make the BIG announcements about what’s coming up on Xbox. With the massive Project Natal announcement at last year’s event, you’d think we’d find it hard to top that. Well, think again.

“This year at E3 we’ve got even BIGGER announcements to share with you.”

Get ready, kids. ‘Tons are about to drop big time.

Microsoft will hold two events in LA next week: its Natal-centric event on Sunday night from 7pm PST, with its main presser at 10am Monday morning.
