Behold, a map with all the time zones in the world. With this map, you can easily calculate the time trailers or press conferences will be shown in your own time zone.

Please keep in mind that this years E3 is held in San Fransisco, which is on the Westcoast of the United States. It's the purple zone, which indicates "-8".

With the bar in the bottom of the image you can easily calculate how many hours the difference is. Remember that there is a "summer timing" in most of Europe, which adds an additional hour.

I hope this helps with the general time zone confusion around the boards.


For the European visitors
The time mentioned on E3 schedule is 9 hours earlier than European time (GMT +1).
So when an conference is held at 10:00 AM in San Fransisco it's 10:00 AM + 9 hours = 7 PM in Europe.
tomorrow's Sony Press Conference: 20:30 (8:30 PM)

I just noticed the "Me" with an arrow pointing to the Eastcoast of the United States.

That's not mine, I live in The Netherlands. Sorry for the inconvenience.
