E3 2011 is here. The annual video game expo kicked off Monday morning after tons of pre-show hype and Wii 2 gossip. There will be constant news pouring out of the Los Angeles Convention Center this week, but perhaps the most anticipated events will be each company's press conference.
These keynotes will announce new games, dive deep into much-anticipated titles, and outline a road map for the coming year.
So when are the press conferences? Here are the big five:
