No more E3?

Recommended Posts

I can't be bothered rewriting my whole opinion as it's on my blog (see sig), but I am generally pretty happy about this. E3 is an exciting time of year for sure, but if its lack of domination means smaller shows can exist throughout the year then I'll be a happy bum. :cool:

The phrase "E3 is dead. Long live E3." comes to mind. As the articles stated, there will probably be a new mini-E3. In addition, publishers will probably continue to seek out events (PAX, ComiCon, TGS, EGC, etc) to hype their products in this new vacuum. Or you might see more companies do what Nintendo and Sony have been succesful at with their traveling road shows.

I will admit that I've cared less and less about E3 in the past few years. So much of the stuff gets leaked beforehand that you never get those "bombshell" moments that used to happen. Half the stuff on display is BS, and everybody just admits it with a nudge and a wink. Plus, I don't need gaming sites doing reports every 5 minutes with the latest blurry shots of some Namco poster or booth babe. I'd much rather see a setup where everybody gets their own keynote time followed by some pre-arranged "hands on" times.

Yeah, because no other press events or game announcement presentations or publisher events or anything else require any amount of effort to put together. :P

The show is part of the gaming culture, sad to see it go.

Its their own fault tho. They all tried to overdo each other and spend more and more money each year and at the end they find out theyve hit the ceiling. Thats a smart strategy.

or vertical slices or tech demos or ... :P

I'd first like to read that "official announcement" before I make up my mind about this.
