Microsoft's E3 2015 plans include giving attention to both Xbox and Windows PC gaming at the show, the company announced today. The company also provided more detail on how fans will be able to watch its Xbox media briefing.

As previously announced, Microsoft will hold its E3 2015 press conference on Monday, June 15, starting at 9:30 a.m. PT. Viewers will be able to watch a livestream of the event on Xbox One, Xbox 360, Xbox.com and Windows Phone. Cable channel Spike TV will also air the event during its "Xbox: Game On" show.

Microsoft also plans to air Xbox Live Daily @ E3, where it promises "breaking news, exclusive announcements, new trailers, game demos" and interviews with developers. That show will air daily from June 15-17, at 4 p.m. PT and can be viewed on Xbox consoles and Xbox.com.

Earlier today, Microsoft confirmed that developer The Coalition (née Black Tusk Studios) will bring its unannounced Gears of War project to E3 2015.

In addition to Xbox, Microsoft is co-sponsoring this year's inaugural PC Gaming Show at E3 2015. Xbox head Phil Spencer will attend the event to talk about Windows 10 for gaming, DirectX 12, the Xbox app and more, according to an announcement.
