E3 Expo – From Trade Show To Sideshow

Normally, May is the month of E3 Expo, the biggest interactive video game show in the world. I have been going to E3 Expo in Los Angeles for years and have always look forward to checking out the booth babes, gaming hardware, booth babes, video games, booth babes and partying with the companies in attendance.

There is an E3 this year but it’s no longer in May and it’s no longer the big deal it was in the past. Because the big game makers (Sony, MS, Nintendo & EA) wasn’t getting the ROI they wanted from the show, E3 has now been reduced to a little sideshow in Santa Monica call E3 Media & Business Summit. The event runs July 11-13 and is by invite only. Between 3,000 to 4,000 people are expected to attend – a far cry from the 60,000+ that attended the last E3 Expo. I received an invite but I don’t think I’ll be going. E3 as a business event? Please!

For a trip down memory lane, I figure I would post some photos from last year’s E3 Expo. You won’t be seeing anything like this from E3 again.

          and already 40 comments πŸ˜‰ what does this proove? 😈

  2. Phishie Diaz says:

    Oh… hehe… somehow I missed all of the content and just paid attention to the babes…

    WTF NO E3!??! Wow, I heard something about this but I didn’t really look into it. That is very sad because E3 is THE BIGGEST gaming convention! Everybody knows about it. Damn those greedy corporations. I think them pulling out will probably hurt them more than help them. Bad move for them imo. It might not hurt MS as much as the other companies though…

      Why do some peoples comments appear crossed out like this?

      1. Slaptijack says:

        I see it in Firefox 2, but not IE 6.

      2. Willster says:

        Same here, though if I scroll up and down again it sometimes clears them up. Weird…

      3. Phishie Diaz says:

        Ya… not really sure what’s up with that. John’s site has something weird with it. Those lines appear randomly everywhere. Not sure what it is.

      4. i asked john once, he never answered

        1. John Chow says:

          It’s something to do with my theme. I haven’t figure out how to get rid of it.

          1. Phishie Diaz says:

            John you’re not allowed to look at beautiful women until you fix this problem. I hate random lines! 😈

          2. haha, that’s harsh….

            the first right a man can have is to look at beautiful women

            that’s what we men have our eyes for, well, at least it remains true on my part

        2. blogdinero says:

          I think itΒ΄s a John bug

    2. well, you’re not alone

  3. sexy babes 😈 😈

  4. i thought paris is in jail now!

    1. Marc says:

        1. Check out the evil eyes of the lady behind Hilton

          she hates her real bad… :mrgreen:

    1. SEO Forums says:

      Why not post it all in one comment? The Top Commentors is a priviledge not to be abused, noticed this a few times πŸ™„

      1. well, maybe you can, i can’t
        1. i can only write what i think at that particular moment
        2. i need to reply to certain comments like what i’m doing right now
        3. as long as i’m not spamming anyone, i think john is fine with that

        1. also, i’m not abusing the priviledge of being a top commentator

          i just try to improve it

  6. mihnea says:

    Yes John, as you said on your older post, the beautiful women attract the traffic. I have tested this! I was present at an IT show last week and I made a poll with the Best Lookning Booth Babes. I’ve received traffic and attention. Nice photos! πŸ˜‰

  7. Slaptijack says:

    The glory days of the booth babes. I’m afraid they’ve come and gone, at least for the tech industry.

    1. well, what do you call the girls shown in the pictures then?

  8. Shawn Knight says:

    First Comdex, now E3… guess its only a matter of time before CES is ruined!

  9. James says:

    the second to last one looks like paris hilton

    1. apparently, it is

      i was told that the picture was taken last year

  10. Jim says:

    *SIGH* πŸ˜₯

    I really wanted to attend an E3 at some point in my life, and when they announced all this I was so angry. There’s still another gameshow though I can’t remember the name, but it is supposed to be pretty big.

  11. John: what game did Jenny play ?? πŸ˜†

    1. John Chow says:

      I wasn’t looking at the game she was playing so I had no idea.

      1. ok.
        post more hot babes pictures. πŸ˜€

      2. well, john, if you weren’t looking at the game, what were you looking at then

    1. John Chow says:

      1. msdanielle says:

        only here in LA can you be a swimsuit/calendar model, reality tv show participant, and E3 booth girl! lol

  13. Clickfire says:

    I didn’t realize E3 had been downsized. I’m going to miss all the excitement. I went the last year it was held in Atlanta before consoles took over and it was a blast.

  14. How many video games you saw?, you were looking at the girls!

    I envy you!

  15. green says:

    I wouldnt be interested in games, if i had been there πŸ˜€

  16. I completely get what Jenny McCarthy was doing there, but Paris? Hmmm anyway, pretty good pictures, John. Too bad this year’s E3 won’t be as action-packed as the ones in the past.

    1. promote her pity self

      you see her everyone…even in court

      1. You didn’t have to correct yourself there, MYB — I think we all got it the first time. πŸ™‚

  20. Matt Huggins says:
