Geoff Keighley and YouTube ink multi-year deal for expanded E3 coverage


Geoff Keighley, the host of The Game Awards, has teamed up with YouTube again for expanded live coverage of the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles.

For the third year in a row, Keighley will host an expanded show with live coverage of the big company press events on June 11-12. And this time, Keighley and YouTube said they will work together on E3 coverage for multiple years. That will be a potent combination in the E3 media wars, in competition with the likes of IGN and Amazon’s Twitch.

YouTube Live at E3 will feature appearances by YouTube’s biggest gaming creators, such as AngryJoe, Ali-A, iJustine, MatPat, Nadeshot, Vikkstar, and more to be announced. YouTube Live at E3, which will broadcast from a new studio at the JW Marriott Los Angeles L.A. Live, will be available to stream globally at youtube.com/e3. The studio will have room for a live audience.

“E3 is a huge moment for everyone who plays video games, and YouTube is the biggest video platform for gaming in the world,” said Keighley, the host and executive producer for Live at E3, in a statement. “This year we are doubling down: We’re building a brand-new studio, expanding to two days of coverage, and broadcasting live in 4K Ultra HD for the first time. What won’t change, however, is our focus on delivering the best quality content and giving YouTube’s top gaming creators a place to come celebrate their passion for this medium.”

Keighley will also be host of E3 Coliseum, an event where some of the most famous game developers talk about their games in front of a couple of thousand fans at the nearby Microsoft Theater.

“E3 is one of the biggest weeks of the year for gaming on YouTube, and we’re thrilled to continue our long-term partnership with Geoff for Live at E3,” said Ryan Wyatt, the global head of gaming content and partnerships at YouTube, in a statement. “Live at E3 will anchor a week of live E3 coverage from all our partners and game publishers, which will be accessible through a special event page at youtube.com/e3.”

Samsung’s phone-as-desktop concept now runs Linux

Samsung's DeX is a clever way to turn your phone into a desktop computer. However, there's one overriding problem: you probably don't have a good reason to use it instead of a PC. And Samsung is trying to fix that. It's unveiling Linux on Galaxy, an app-based offering that (surprise) lets you run Linux distributions on your phone. Ostensibly, it's aimed at developers who want to bring their work environment with them wherever they go. You could dock at a remote office knowing that your setup will be the same as usual.

It's not quite the same as your typical Ubuntu or Debian install. Linux on Galaxy launches through an app, and it's using the same kernel as Android itself in order to maintain performance. And it almost goes without saying that you'll really want a DeX setup, since most Linux apps are expecting a large screen, mouse and keyboard.

As it stands, you'll have to be patient. Linux on Galaxy isn't available right now -- you can sign up for alerts, but it's not ready for public consumption. Even so, this is good evidence that Samsung thinks of DeX as considerably more than a novelty feature. It may be a long, long while (if ever) before many people are using their phones as desktops, but Samsung is willing to gradually build up its ecosystem and eventually give you an incentive to take a second look.
