CEO of EA John Riccitiello has some scathing words for this year's E3. The San Francisco Chronicle asked his thought's on the event this year in an interview to have him reply,"I hate E3 like this.Either we need to go back to the old E3, or we'll have to have our own private events."
The president of Ubisoft North America had some harsh comments as well saying, "E3 this year is terrible. The world used to come to E3. Now it's like a pipe-fitters show in the basement."
Whether their comments will truly change the event next year is hard to tell at this point, but Mike Gallagher, President of the Entertainment Software Association (ESA), which puts on E3, said that they continually listen to their members and thinks it will grow next year, though he's unsure of just how much.
