I wonder who's going to have the best quality stream this year. YouTube should be able to handle the demand better.

I'm only bothered about seeing the Kinect games and I'll base whether I buy one or not on what I see tonight.

There's already more than enough third party AAA content coming in the next 12 months to keep my 360 busy.

There's this link in the OP http://xbox.icmsp.com/xbox/sxcf65bd50xs/en_US/index.cml

Not sure if streaming will work on the iPhone, though. Depends if they use Flash or HTML5.

I've already got Gamespot's Microsoft live stream on the go.

According to the list in the opening post. If not, GameTrailers was good last year.

Hmmm...although Gamespot has been pretty good for the last few years I'm now wondering if it's worth trying the IGN YouTube stream on my PS3 instead.

I wish the PS3 was able to do YT vids in HD. The quality is never good enough for full screen. And when you move the cursor, things tend to stutter.

That's what I want announced for E3. A better web browser, because the one in the PS3 is beginning to struggle with the demands of the internet. It doesn't even work properly for Sony's own site FFS.
