Is E3 becoming irrelevant as the online world changes?
No! But if would find some data that prove your questions should even be asked please feel free to submit an article pointing out why you asked this stupid question. I also doubt anyone here can give a definitive answer to this question. The pass E3's have been well attended, and fans who weren't there seem to have watched. Pay attention to the upcoming E3 and may be to could answer your own question.
I'm more excited about this E3 than I was at this time last year
no. no, no and no. this year's E3 is way more anticipated and hyped than the last 3-4 years. lots of great titles coming in, and the biggest show in years!
meaningless article. me personally i simply cannot wait for Microsoft, Sony, Nintendo, & PC press conferences
SE conference for me , it happens twice in a life time .
Seeing how it's still like a month away and we are already seeing the PR hype machines in motion, I think it's safe to say E3 is as big as it's ever been and as relevant as ever.
E3 can easily become irrelevant but as long as they keep up what they are doing, publishers will continue to do their thing there and we as gamers can hope to get actual news this time of the year instead of getting links to tweets from developer X talking about topic Y. its still a great time of the year, bit hard for the people living outside of the US. But we will sosldier it through despite the harsh sleeping pattern we have to live through
Easy answer is NO. However, it can be very easy for big publishers to completely ignore thisand do their own thing. Not really sure what Nintendo does at E3, but presentation/conference wise they have kinda abandoned it. If you live in US and not too far from where E3 venues than I guess it can still be a thing, for people outside the country we hardly care, as long as we get the livestreams/recording of the conference than its ok. Sony and Microsoft has chosen to reveal their console by themselves and not at E3 so that could be a change in the future. All I can say is as long as we get to see any conferences than I can careless about E3. E3 does seem like Xmas in a sense though, we get a rough time where all big news will come from and it does get the gaming community hyped. All we talk about online every day is controversies and other BS blogs and youtubers try to make big.
Watch Sonys press conference this year. I beg to differ.
I'm expecting big things from Sony, Nintendo and Microsoft. PS4 is doing so well that I doubt MS and Nintendo are just gonna sit back and take it easy. Shots will be fired :)
I've said it once I'll say it again... E3 IS MY SUPERBOWL!!
I have the days off work. 2 computers set up. I'm prepared to plop my ass on my couch and watch every little bit of footage and read every story. Same as past couple years. Love E3!
I try do the same but in Australia E3 kicks off around 4am all 3 days so I just take the first day off (since its got all the heavy hitters) and watch the full footage of the last 2 days at my leisure :D
Not so hyped this year for Sony. Past couple of years was very disappointing from Sony they gotta step up this year.
Yeah your right. Many people purchased Xbox One because they had a better E3 than Sony. I mean who wouldn't want DRM, Kinect only, online only, 499$ weaker console, a smaller library of games? /s
Actually many people thought Sonys e3 was better. I never saw the same amount of applause in Microsoft's conference. That's all subjective though.
U got balls to say that around these here parts! I feels the same way about pretty much every conference lol! they never seem to reach my lofty expectations of an epic reveal.. all the self hyping doesn't help
I wonder if Konami will show up?
I like E3 because its the only gaming evenent that gets good coverage. My youtube subscription list is filled with new game announcements and new games footage from Ign to gamespot. Good times.
when is e3 coming?
Looks like neogaf mods have taken to writing off E3 because they were denied a pass last year. Still salty because a forum is NOT a video game website?
Considering Bethesda and Square both set up conferences which they typically don't do, I'd have to say no. Plus don't forget with internet streams better than ever the past few years there are millions of people around the world watching. I even make it an event, request work time off and spend those days with only the stream on the tv. Call friends over and order pizza then make predictions and laugh at the over acting during the cons.
With the way there are reveals just before E3 lately I am thinking maybe its pointless because last years E3 there was very few surprises because the few weeks before E3 most games that were revealed at E3 were already leaked. I just wish the Leaks would stop so that we could get surprises. Saying that I still look forward to E3 every year still and I would love to attend E3 myself.
3 extra conferences beg to differ.
Why do we have this same stupid discussion every year? The cut E3 down a number of years ago and they quickly realized it as a bad idea, so they brought it back, bigger and better. And now with all the online streaming that takes place, E3 is better then ever.
Yes just to different it has no relevance to my digestive system.
Given the amount of conferences alone. No. Did the writer apply for an E3 pass and get rejected? Probably.
