Hey US gamers!  If you’re dying to find out what’s going on in Los Angeles at the annual E3 Electronic Entertainment Expo, you’re in for a treat—the whole thing is streaming live on YouTube.  You can check out all of the coverage, brought to you by IGN, at YouTube.com/E3.

If you aren’t familiar with E3, it is an annual showcase for the gaming industry.  Gamers and gaming companies come together to build a buzz around upcoming games.  Mark Day of YouTube Gaming writes on the YouTube blog, “You typically need to be connected to the games industry to attend, but as we continue to give you front row seats to local and world events, you can now share in the E3 excitement as it happens.  Expect to see new game demos, developer interviews, expert analysis and more.”

Unfortunately, the live stream is only available to viewers in the United States.  However, there will also be plenty of E3 content uploaded to the IGN YouTube channel, as well as other gaming partner channels for those of you who are outside of the US.

E3 began yesterday with Microsoft, EA, Ubisoft and Sony press conferences.  However, if you’re in the US you’ve still got two more packed days of live streamed presentations, press conferences and gaming excitement.  The schedule, as listed on the E3 YouTube channel is as follows:
