Friday Roundtable: Is E3 Still Relevant?


Despite the pomp and ceremony, after last year's muddled and vapid expo, is E3 still a relevant event? It's something that rings especially true when most of this year's showings are titles long announced or obvious additions to established franchises. But not everyone shares this view.

The BNBGAMING crew discuss. (Culture, E3, Industry, Xbox 360)

I wonder why it wouldn't be all of a sudden lol? E3 is still relevant.

I think it is. It cuts down on all the rumors and bs you hear through out the year once its happened.

There is a lot of excitement for E3 this year... It's definitely still relevant

E3 articles every hour on the hour (including this one) for 3 months leading up to the actual event? Easily the leakiest time of the year with rumors flying around like Kryll? Yea I think someone still feels its relevant.

Monday still seems so far away. Can't wait for the madness to begin and get stuck on overdrive.

Not bashing the article, this is just my view.

"most of this years showings were long announced"

1 It hasn't even happened yet, you don't know what else will be shown at all.....

2 These games wouldn't have been announced yet if it wasn't for E3 coming up....You would wait till some other event.

E3 is still relevant simply because its the show that confirms things, shows off gameplay, and talks about the future. No other show really does that beyond a few announcements at the GOTY awards just to hype it up a little.....Sure some other shows are getting bigger, but E3 is still the staple and will be for some time.

Its like asking if CES still matters to electronics just because Apple feels too cool for it....
