Reports confirm that E3 is slated to return in 2009, however it may be the event's swan song.
I hate E3 now. I think that publishers should hold their own conferances when they actually have stuff to show. Isntead of wasting their time and resources on events that dont even appeal to the people they put the show on for.
Ok, so if E3 came back next year, opened its doors, and was everything it used to be, then rode off into the sunset never to return again ... you would be happy?
E3 is dead.
Bring back boothbabes for the last E3!
But I will. They should open the doors to the public again. Period. Let the U.S. fanboys have they're fun.
I think E3 can still turn things around. What they should do is keep the journalists and gamers separate but both at E3 - - So that it still operates as the industry convention we saw this year which whilst not exciting for gamers does work for journalists, developers and the platform holders, - But that it seperately operates as the PR/gaming extravaganza for gamers and fans. This would also get the support of publishers who want to promote their wares. The press conferences for press, the extravaganza for gamers/fans and the game floor for everybody. :)
no e3 was fine then they had to close it to the public then everything went down hill ya 07 wasnt that bad but god good 08 sucked, all u have to do is restore it to its former glory and were good e3 will be what it use to be, but hey we know thats not going to happen so may as well do what the DA_SHREDDER said to do let the developers do there own press conferences something like sports do stuff like that, e3 should be dropped unless turned back to the way it was
I want booth babes :)
I mean come on.. we already knew about 97% of the games announced... only new things were MAG, Fat Princess.. come psn games and the FFXIII going multi... did they really need to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars for this?? They should do it every 2 years and let these companies only show new games... not games we've known about for months.. We have internet now... i rather watch HD trailers than a show were i can't see crap...
careful what you wish for....
So how many times now has E3 supposed to have died? They've been saying this for the past three years now, and E3 has always been back the next year. Seriously enough of this E3 is dying crap, if it dies then so be it nobody cares, Leipzig and TGS are still more important anyway.
"Leipzig and TGS are still more important anyway." Well, that's why the E3 doom and gloom stories always pop up.
Like others said, if they opened it back up to the public, they can gain the popularity they lost. Until then, it's only a matter of time before the final curtain draws.
Thank you Jesus. Amen
