Gaming News: "Mixer Dome"
Posted: Wednesday April 17th, 2019 by Woody

Sony has bowed out of E3 this year, probably as a lead up to the details/release of the next Playstation. So, Microsoft seems to have decided to go ham in their absence.

Mixer (formerly Beam) is Microsoft's "answer" to the popularity of Twitch, offering a direct platform to which one can stream from Windows 10 and Xbox One. At this year's E3 Microsoft will be inviting gamers to play, stream, and "interact with game like never before" in the Mixer Dome. The joke here was as obvious as it was immediate. Hence we have Ted dressed as Tina Turner's character Auntie Entity, ruler of Bartertown in Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome.

Inside this so called Mixer Dome, attendees will be invited to play at one of over 100 game stations, tantalized by items in the Xbox merchandise shop, have their ears assaulted by a Live DJ, given swag, entered to win a new console, subjected to something called HypeZone Live, etc.

If you go to E3 this June, please feel free to take pictures to show me this thing. And I shall be devastated when there's a lack of giant bungee bands, flamethrowers, chainsaws, and the like.
