E3 Change Analysis

The Electronic Entertainment Expo, known to gamers everywhere as E3, is the dream of any hardcore video gamer. For over a decade, the gaming industry has congregated during E3, showcasing their hottest games, debuting their newest games, and deluging any gamer with an ear to the ground with more info on video games than they could possibly process. While E3 has always been the time for new gaming information, it has also been known as a little melodramatic and showy, with giant gaudy booths, scantily clad booth babes, and more atmosphere than air. All of this came to a close after lasts year E3, when many companies banded together to reform the gaming expo, making it much smaller and more focused. However, is this new E3 better for the gaming industry? Will this be the first step towards making gaming a more respected business? Or is this just a ploy to take the fun out of gaming?

With the new E3 right around the corner, Cheat Code Central reflects on the changes and if they will affect the industry for better or worse.

The story is too old to be commented.

M$ will dominate this years E3, they have so much more going for them. Can't wait either way, though. This is one of, if not the greatest year for gaming.

The Wii may surprise everyone, there is quite a bit they've been holding back.

that E3 has been scaled down a bit. Hopefully smaller third party companies and maybe even some Indy developers will be able to afford some floor space now. If big name 3rd parties and 1st parties rule E3 it will drown out a lot of creativity from the industry.

More creativity and more diversity as well. And it's not like the big three are not having huge announcements so it's pretty much the same for outsiders.

indy and smaller devs will get EIEIO soon enough if E3 gets all full of it self and forgets that games are ABOUT ...... FUN!

Not arguing on N4g... they are about fun.
