Microsoft’s E3 showcase to focus on services

"Expect a lot of dashboard, interface, multimedia."

Microsoft will focus less on games and more on Xbox LIVE services at E3 next month, Wedbush Morgan Securities analyst Michael Pachter was told during a visit to the company.

“They told me don’t expect a lot of game stuff, expect a lot of dashboard, interface, multimedia,” said Pachter on the ‘Microsoft E3 2012 Preview‘ of’s Bonus Round.

Microsoft will host its E3 media briefing on June 4 10 a.m. Pacific / 1 p.m. Eastern. You can watch it live on Spike TV or through Xbox LIVE.
