For the first time the PC will be getting its own side-show attraction at this year's E3 in Los Angeles, California. PC Gamer and AMD have teamed up for this "long overdue" event as the PC has no single 'holder' for the platform.
Now all can bask in the glow of our monitor screens with many notable guests scheduled for the PC Gaming Show, which takes place on June 16th. AMD says it "embodies the spirit" of PC.
It's a call for celebration of the PC and its gaming community which has stood defiant in the face of publishers and studios that claimed we're in our death throes. Now we can prove the PC is going to be making as much if not more noise at E3 alongside Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo.

"The PC Gaming Show embodies the spirit of innovation, openness and community that's part of our DNA—delivered by gamers, for gamers," AMD's Matt Skynner said. "The time is right for a PC-focused event in the week of E3 and we're honored to be part of bringing the industry together."
Who's coming? DayZ creator Dean Hall, Cliff 'CliffyB' Bleszinski, and a myriad of developers from Blizzard Entertainment, Bohemia Interactive, Cloud Imperium Games, Tripwire Interactive, Square Enix, Obsidian Entertainment, Paradox Interactive, Devolver Digital and others.
E3 2015 takes place June 16-18 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. The PC Gaming Show is hosted on June 16th at the Belasco Theater in L.A., and will be streamed live via Twitch.
