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.
