The worst moments in E3 history

Ninemsn writes: E3 — the "Electronic Entertainment Expo" for those of you playing at home — is the biggest video games convention of the year, held annually in June at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

The event typically plays host to the industry's biggest events and reveals, and this year's E3, held from June 11-13, will be no different, with Sony and Microsoft primed to showcase their new home gaming consoles.

While some of the gaming world's favourite moments have come from E3, there have been some truly horrendous presentations and reveals.

Jamie Kennedy's drunken antics at his E3 2010 hosting gig for Call of Duty publisher, Activision, is a sight to behold as he stumbles through the event with insults and bad jokes.

Then there's Sony's reveal of the infamous "boomerang" controller for the PlayStation 3, which was promptly canned after a rousing negative reception from gamers and media.

There have been many other bad E3 moments — join GamesFIX as it looks at the best of the wo...


Nine MSN Australia appears to lock out international visitors from viewing the videos. This will be addressed shortly.

Xbox One and gaming don't belong in the same article.

BiggCMan2026d ago

There's nothing about Xbox One in this article o.O

Anyways, the list isn't letting me watch the videos, disappointing.

Regardless of your opinion, it's a machine that plays games, it has every right to be in an article about games. You and gaming don't belong together, you're the cancer that makes our hobby a laughing stock.

NumOnePS3FanBoy2026d ago

the cancer,imo, is a machine that is not devoted entirely in what it was designed to do and COD gamers

Do you have a smart phone? Think about what you do with it, then think about what phones are actually made to do. We live in the age of convenience, if the PS4 only played games all of the fanboys would be in an uproar, just the same as if it had a ton of features complaining it didn't focus on games. fact is, kids just love to complain. Last time I checked PC gaming is very successful, and you can do a whole lot more on the PC than just playing games. I hope you don't read this, I'd feel bad knowing your head exploded from the amount of logic I just dumped on you.

If we live in an age of convenience then why the hell do I need an xbox TV most smartphones nowadays can do 4k out.

elhebbo162026d ago (Edited 2026d ago )

to me it was $599, the wii sports tennis demo (it didnt looked sync), and the Kinect E3 conference.

andibandit2026d ago (Edited 2026d ago )

Sony 2006: Giant Crab, 599$, Real Time Weapon Change, Riiidge Raaaceeeer.

Nintendo 2008,2010: Drummer having Epileptic seizure.
Myamoto demoing Skyward Sword.

MS 2010,2011: Kinect, Skittles, Kinect, Kinect, Kinect, Kinect, Kinect, Kinect.

But the winner is beyond any doubt
KONAMI 2010, watch it yourself if you dont believe me.
It's even worse than MS XBone reveal.

ILive2026d ago

What? Konami's 2010 E3 conferences was the greatest conference ever lol.

Retroman2026d ago

the most HORRENDOUS moment is MS conference X1 nothing will top that decades on.

AngryEnglish2026d ago

Yeah but that didn't happen at E3, so there was no moment

Retroman2026d ago (Edited 2026d ago )

@ angryenglish an mr sinatra

it dont need to be @ E3 for x1 a BAD presentation is a BAD presentation regardless when or where it's at.

AngryEnglish2026d ago

GT67, the heading is.... "The worst moments in E3"

That's what the article is about

So yes it does need to be about E3, its been going since 1995, im sure you could have found something instead of doing the "X1 is shit" routine which had a shit show of its own

MadMen2026d ago

Worst Moments for me

SONY\PS3 = Announcement of Price 599
Nintendo\N64 = Anouncement of Cartridge
Microsft\Xbox = worse NON announcement NO KI!!!

MrSwankSinatra2026d ago

i don't see what was so bad about nintendo still using cartridges, sure they didn't get a lot of games the playstation and saturn got. but it had some of the most memorable games EVER.

level 3602026d ago (Edited 2026d ago )

PS3 was nearly a thousand dollar ( AU$999.00 ) over here in Australia when it was first released. Count yourself lucky.

Reason I got it was because the console was bundled free when I bought my then 40inch full hd Bravia.

ItsMeAgain2026d ago

Ok... And, what does that have to do with E3 bad moments? O_O
