The Duke Ivan calls together a prestigious council of six trusted advisors in search of a viable path for putting an end to this war of succession.

As for that tweet by the Windows Central guy, he was not talking about the DF video. See his comment here (49 minutes ago)
@GriftGFX: Because they always have a show of about 90 minutes and they need that time for game demos and announcements. I feel it wouldn't be enough time for all of it. Pre event to me sounds better. (50 minutes ago)
@Moonwalker: E3 could work. But they,d need to bring a lot lf actual games along with it. Othwire they,ll be left holding a console while sony shows us all the games you can play. (2 Hours ago)
Now if they could dig up info on some new games that would be more interesting than some specs on an unreleased console with barely any exclusives. (2 Hours ago)
