Microsoft imposes E3 media blackout

Microsoft has announced some details for this year's E3 press conference on Monday June 14th.

But, remarkably, the software giant has come across all Apple and banned attendees from bringing video cameras or any kind of recording equipment to the Project Natal preview shindig the day before the main event.

Quite how Microsoft expects to impose this policy is a mystery as it would take more than a Redmond goon with a security badge and an attitude to pry our precious (i)phones out of our hands.

Apart from the much-hyped and often derided wave-your-hands-in-the-air-like-you-just-don't-care controller-free controller gadget, Microsoft is expected to roll out Halo Reach, Fable 3, and an anorexic XBox. Coo!
