In each episode of Quality Control, a Polygon writer talks to a critic about a new game, movie or piece of gear. In this week’s special episode, Charlie Hall invites Polygon executive editor Chris Plante and Kotaku news editor Jason Schreier to preview this year’s E3, which kicks off next week in Los Angeles.

All the major platform holders and some publishers will have their own press briefings before the convention even starts. So what does Sony have left to show that might surprise us? What can Microsoft do to try and right the foundering Xbox ship? How many days will it take Nintendo to dole out information on new titles, big and small? Will we really see as many battle royale games as we think? And will VR be anything other than an afterthought? All these topics and more in a massive 40-minute episode.
