It's the End of E3 As We Know It

...and I feel fine.

The game industry buzz over the weekend was all about how E3 is dead or downsized.

Between swarms of goofball non-industry attendees, the adverse impact to the game development calendar (it's hard for some companies to make progress on the actual game early in the year if everyone's busy with teh shiney E3 demo), and dubious actual value to publishers, this may not be a bad thing.

And now, straight from the ESA's mouth, it sounds like the rumors of an "evolved" E3 are true.

Guess the tools trolling the West Hall for boobage dressed in skimpy game character costumes will have to go back to paying escort services for it.
