I’m late on this news, living in China and all, but E3 as we know it is over. I kind of imagined E3 as a nerds-only fashion week, with all kinds of gamers, developers and game journalists crawling out into the light for a few days of meeting and new game demos. But it seems like getting out an E3 build of this year’s in-progress games is costing time and productivity.
I’m really sad to read this. It means the end of my dream to become an E3 booth babe! Ok, so I don’t know if I could fill out the required chainmail bikini but it would be awesome to go. I wonder if E3 will tone down and disappear, or if the game industry needs the publicity and networking.
