So if you're keen to find out all of the Xbox reveal news, be sure to join us at 6pm on this very page. For the time being though, be sure to let us know what you expect to see and what you want to see in the comments below.
17.23: If you're excited (a bit like me!) you may want to read up on a few articles before the event:

17.44: So... let's talk games. There are strong rumours about a Fable MMO, a new Alan Wake, Forza 5, and Respawn's Titan being exclusive to Xbox. I also really hope that Microsoft show us that they're working with smaller, indie developers. I mean, some of the best games on the 360 are XBLA games... I'm thinking Bastion, Braid, Mark of the Ninja, Castle Crashers, and Super Meat Boy. Let's hope that these guys aren't overlooked.
It's also likely that we'll see a lot of Battlefield today, with Microsoft and EA working closely together at the moment.
17.46: But Microsoft have said that they'll be showing of games at E3, so maybe we won't see too much outside of the core franchises (COD, Fifa etc.).
17.47: We'll probably see another Kinect Sports too...
17.50: I hope we get to see what Black Tusk are working on.
17.55: 5 Minutes!!!!!!!!!!
18.01: Here we go... loads of flashing lights and loud music. The Xbox reveal is fully underway at the Microsoft campus.
18.03: Me and my TV are going to be pals... recognise my face and voice apparently. ALIVE!
18.03: Don Mattrick on the stage now...
18.06: Mattrick talking about both core and casual gamers. Emphasis on the living room, Microsoft clearly want people to have the Xbox as an all in one entertainment system. Games, TV, movies, apps etc.
18.07: Xbox One. It's official. Seen the box. "All in one entertaiment system".
18.08: Loud cheers. Controller looks pretty similer on first glance.
18.10: Xbox switches on by voice. Recognises your voice, logs in to your account instantly.
18.12: Can watch live TV on Xbox. Just say "Xbox watch TV" and it goes to live TV.
18.12: Watch TV, play games, surf the net, listen to music without switching inputs. It's super quick too. Looks brilliant if I'm honest.
18.15: Skype on Xbox One. It was always as solid bet since Microsoft bought them out. Can watch a movie on one part of the screen and Skype some one the other part of the screen in "Snap Mode".
18.17: Xbox One has a TV guide. Can navigate with voice and see what's trending.
18.20: Marc Whitten taking the stage. Talking about tech... futureprooofing, the cloud etc. He's showing us under the hood now.
