E3 is Still Important, Just Not as Much

E3 has its roots in a pre-Internet market, when the only way enthusiasts within the gaming industry could get hard information was if the various media outlets had a place they could go. A location where all the major players assembled to get in depth information about what next years’ worth of market activity was going to entail. E3 was that event. Now there are multiple events scattered throughout the year, with gatherings like the Game Developers Conference and even the San Diego Comic Con hosting game related announcements, but the biggest game changer is still the Internet itself. Now gamers don’t have to wait for a journalist to attend an event, make notes, write up an article, send it off to the layout artists and have it put in the issue for next month in order to be consumed weeks after E3 has come and gone. (Culture, E3)
