E3 is one of the most famous computer gaming shows in the world. While various companies and platforms have had their own press conferences at the show over the years this year will be the first with a dedicated PC Gaming Show. The lead sponsor of the event will be AMD.

The PC Gaming Show will be held on Tuesday 16th June. That's the first day of the E3 show in Los Angeles, which runs over three days; 16th, 17th and 18th June 2015. As reported by PC Gamer, who are also sponsors of the event, "there's never been a better time to play games on PC". The gaming magazine teased that "reports of its demise as a viable platform were ludicrously exaggerated".

A site set up to promote the PC Gaming Show event at E3 says that some of the biggest names in PC gaming will be presenting and attendees and watchers will see PC gaming innovations that lie ahead. Enthusiastically the event description says we've never had it so good "PC gaming is in a golden age, with more powerful and affordable hardware than ever before, thousands of games available through Steam, Origin and other platforms, and millions of viewers regularly watching esports online".

Sean 'Day[9]' Plott will host the event helped along by a series of developers from studios including Blizzard, Bohemia Interactive, Cloud Imperium Games, Tripwire Interactive, Square Enix, Obsidian, Paradox, Devolver Digital and the Humble Bundlers.

If you can't attend the event in person you might be happy to hear that it will be live-streamed on Twitch. The event runs for 3 hours between 5pm and 8pm Pacific Time (UTC-08:00).
