Why Activision has already “won” E3 and are the press to blame?

Ben, of RandomProdInc, writes: "So, in my view, Activision has already won E3, but why? Not because of the number or quality of the games they are going to showcase but because of the gaming press reporting on one particular game."

Up until a couple of weeks ago, it was all about Battlefield 3 and all the video's they were running. Now that Activision has started advertising their game MW3, it's a bad thing...O_o

E3 hasn't even started yet. M$ and Apple have their press conferences tomorrow and if Apple announces their own console then they will be the talk of the show and dwarf most other news.

Nintendo will have a showing for their new console and it is rumored to be at least as powerful and if you believe the rumors 50% more powerful than anything out at present time. Showing the little Italian plumber running around at 1080p 60fps will be tough to beat.

M$ might shock the gaming world with their own new console and show Halo 4 running on it.

Sony may have a new console as well since the new PsP2 runs a quad processor, maybe that was a peak at the new PS4.

Lots and lots of game announcements and showings. MW3 is not a new IP and people are hungry for something exciting and new...hold on to your hats, E3 is going to be massive this year.

I think you might be expecting a wee bit too much from E3 in 4 brand new consoles lol.

Yeh totally agree, 4? Little bit greedy there.....

I still don't understand how any of the 3 companies can lose e3. I thought it was a show to display their upcoming plans for their respective systems. Are their any judges that gives the specific company a trophy? Or are the judges the Fanboys on each side that will talk veal to the others. I just wonder how many Wii2 fanboys will come out of the closet. That's going to be hilarious.

Inside & out, your 0 for 12 buddy.

we still have a few good years before the next sony or microsoft consoles are annonced. also, activision isn't going to "win" E3. E# is an expo not a game show!

TomInc2751d ago

I agree that victory goes to most covered as that show.. But with project cafe, and sony's MASSIVE conference.. I think it's safe to say we won't know who has won until e3 ends.

SkyCrawler2751d ago

That's because we gamers win. This may sound hella cheesy but srsly..cmon...

yen8882751d ago

Well to be honest at the end of the article it says that no-one wins E3 but there are losers.

SkyCrawler2751d ago

Yeah but I was really replying to inside_out who seems WAY too into it.

VampiricDragon2751d ago

ds localizations, 3ds games, wii localizations, project cafe

they really cant lose

Last time I checked there were no "awards" for E3. Whoever "wins" is purely subjective and no actual "victor" exists. That said, most people don't consider individual developers to even be in the running for these events. It's all about the Big 3. So no, Activision has not "already won" E3.

The article is more to do with the gaming press not covering the smaller publishers.
