Posted by James Newton
Want to watch Ubisoft's Wii U games? Then keep it here as we bring you the live video of its E3 press conference.
Can't get YouTube working for whatever reason? We'll have updates for you on new games, technology and anything else interesting Ubisoft has to show. Hopefully there's no Mr Caffeine.
Ubisoft's conference is just part of the E3 extravaganza. Check out the full E3 2012 schedule to find out more about what's on, when and where to watch.

Some Wii U content was in there
Rayman, Rabbids, Zombi U and more. Some looked quite promising.
Show's over folks. What did you think?
So that one was called Watch Dogs
It's on PS3, other platforms? Let's see.
Two players, one pursuing the other. Interesting.
A bit of online play, it seems.
Suddenly we have a gun fight
Cover, shoot, move on. It's different, anyway.
He made cars crash with his phone, now we have bullet time.
So, is this interesting anyone out there?
Oh, now he's beaten someone up. Back to walking in the rain...
Now he's hacking NPC personal data.
Lot's tough guy talk
"You lookin' at me?" - he didn't actually say that.
I hope he's got his 3DS, think of the play coins! [Tom]
Cube heads, we're definitely in the future now.
He seems to be hacking stuff with his phone, is this an open-world game?
It's not action packed, is it? [Tom]
Oh no, it's all about stalking and looks just like GTA. [James]
Man walking, still walking.
I'm putting my money on a first-person shooter with slow motion breach bits. You know, just for a change. [James]
High-fives for all if this is another first-person shooter!
Looks like a PS3 demo
ctOS - the city becomes your weapon
You control infrastructure and surveillance.
'Everything can be hacked', so there.
Swish stuff about data and so on, still waiting for the point.
Something about managing cities, it seems.
A new Ubi IP being unveiled
What is it?
Lots of Ubisoft online coverage
Wii U coverage probably finished, but let's see.
That one's finishing up, the final will be at the booth, for those interested.
And it goes on. Shoot shoot, loud shouting, and repeat.
A surprisingly long demo for this one, PC only?
Looks like standard PC online shooting fare, some overhead views.
It's YouTube Celebrity Day!
Er, who are they?
E3 conference rule 2 - get more pretty girls.
OK, we're lost.
"More than 17 people [sic]" - this guy won't be coming back.
Social gaming time - stand down Wii U fans.
If it looks this good on Wii U, we'll be laughing.
Assassin's Creed III by far the biggest name on Ubi's Wii U line-up. We can't wait!
Englishman drinking tea, hooray!
Pretty sleek level design, it must be said [Tom]
Bullets aren't an issue for our hero in Assassin's Creed III
Some standard 'what you doin 'ere' English accents, too
On themes, all the usual 'affecting lives, revolution' etc [Tom]
What other 'themes' do we have from Ubisoft?
Killing animals, 'girl wood', what else?
Killing animals seems to be a theme.
FYI - this demo is the PS3 version.
Assassin's Creed III demo now, in a snow covered New England.
Here comes the producer...
Dramatic stuff in that trailer.
One man against the whole British Army, hm...
Dramatic speech, soaring eagle, battle and so on...
OK, Assassin's Creed III time
Immersing you in the history of America.
Sports Connection also there.
Your Shape, of course.
Rabbids Land Wii U
Ah, Killerfreaks has been replaced by Zombi U
How long will you survive in Zombi U?
Chaos, virus, you know the drill...
Zombi U, this is apparently called.
Lots and lots of zombies.
Zombies and God Save the Queen playing...
There's more Wii U, and it's not for kids!
Will be playable in the Ubisoft booth.
Five players exclusive to Wii U version?
A fun, fast level this, with awesome music.
GamePad player is pretty important in Rayman Legends
Go Murphy go!
Gyro controls to influence environment
Whooping from crowd
Some pretty, colourful visuals here.
Up to five players in Wii U version
Wii Remotes and GamePad in action
A strong co-op emphasis in Rayman Legends
Combos being shown off
Plenty of Wii U touchscreen action with Murphy
Murphy is controlled with the GamePad
Wii U GamePad and Pro Controller being shown
New character called Murphy
Some nice visuals there.
It's Rayman Legends on Wii U
'The next generation of gaming on Wii U'
Wii U segment
Here we go!
Fall 2012 for that: Wii U launch title?
All the gang are there, destroying a city [Tom]
I actually really liked PowerUp Heroes on Kinect, so a Marvel Avengers game on Wii U from the same studio sounds good to me! [James]
Avengers: Battle for Earth trailer - Wii U time
Silenced gun down, sub-machine gun it its place.
Sam Fisher isn't so sneaky any more.
It's trailer time.
So, Splinter Cell. Will it be confirmed for Wii U?
It's Splinter Cell time.
PETA won't like Ubisoft tomorrow [Ant]
An 'archipelago of violence' in Far Cry 3, apparently.
Far Cry 3 probably not on Wii U, by the way
Strange stuff happening now. It's moved on from the original.
He threw a grenade at a tiger! [Tom]
He's shooting a Tiger! [Ant]
Lots of running, swearing and killing going on.
Bullets, at last!
Ubisoft are getting edgy and mature, aren't they?
Still no bullets fired...
Ubisoft getting edgy and down with the kids [Tom]
30 seconds and not a single bullet fired, strange...
If this is going to change the way we play, I don't want to live on this planet any more. [James]
Look away kids! WTF!
It's Far Cry 3 - Wii U alert disabled.
'Life Power Play' - The big U are bringing it.
Ubisoft seeks to inspire and be part of our lives etc...
Aisha Tyler - not Mr Caffeine
Just Dance 4 will hit 9th October
We've spotted a Wii U controller in the background - oh yes
Oh, Flo-Rida. That's better. [James]
E3 press conference 101 - have pretty ladies dance [Tom]
Will Smith and Maroon 5? Whoever thought this was a good idea? [James]
It's Just Dance 4, of course.
And we're off.
And we're waiting...
How dare they!
Here we go - please take your seats.
Ubisoft - Preview Adverts Alert
Try not to get hypnotised by the scrolling Uplay advert everyone.
Ten minutes to go!
If you need a comfort break or if you're short on snacks, now's the time.
Our predictions: James Newton (editor)
We'll probably only see a showreel or montage of Wii U games - I don't expect anything more substantial. But hey, I'd love to be wrong (just about this though)
Our predictions: Thomas Whitehead (features editor)
I hope Ubi take the Rayman concept trailer and reproduce some of it in a live demo. Note I said 'hope' and not 'expect'.
Less than half an hour to go to Ubisoft on Wii U! (Maybe)
Exclusive Wii U footage is what we want. Killer Freaks from Outer Space, perhaps?
The return of Mr Caffeine?
Yikes, is this guy going to be back? What will he do with the Assassin's Creed III segment?
Let's start the hype!
Let's pretend that Ubisoft will acknowledge Wii U and some games (surely they will). Tweet us your favourites.
Come and join us for Ubisoft live in 50 minutes!
Apparently they'll show off Wii U games. About time somebody did!
