Shake off your E3 hangover with the incomparable Jim Sterling as he makes his triumphant return to the show. Can he convince us that E3 isn't worth it?
While most of the things Sterling says (in regards to the video game industry as a whole) have merit, this does not. E3, unlike Hollywood...allows consumers to interact with the creators (and or at least those affiliated with said creators) via hands on demos, and the like. It is the ground upon which new IP's grow, and flourish...when introduced. No one can force you to go to E3, the showcase itself is more for the gamers, than the gaming industry.
