I don't think it's a shocker to hear that people are discussing this year's E3 with some degree of skepticism. After all, the event once known for its primo selection of scantily clad women and free swag has transformed considerably, and while it may be more professional, you have to admit that people tend to value fun more highly. Can't we have both, somehow?
According to The Street.com, the reaction to this year's Expo could affect the future of the event. Also quoted is Tal Blevins, Vice President of games content for IGN.com, who commented:
A few years ago, such a thought would have been unheard of, but with multiple companies leaving the ESA recently, the future does seem a tad shaky. Michael Pachter also had some telling comments to offer:
Could this be the last year of E3? How would you feel about seeing it go, if you would react at all?
