Following recent news regarding E3's somewhat dull future, Toms Hardware have shed some light on the current sitch which leaves us all with perhaps a little hope yet! With such strong demand for a show like it, sooner or later 'someone' is bound to fire an equivilent up ( you would hope ).
It was bound to happen. We predicted it would happen. It's happening... E3 has been shrunk down to size, and now somebody else wants to replace it with a new show, exactly the same as the old one. Big, glitzy, expensive, and ultimately self-defeating. Possibly not in the first year, or even in the second, but eventually it'll just become the untenable thing that E3 was this year.
The organizers of the Consumer Electronics Show, the big fish of big fishes where tech trade shows are concerned, have assembled what they're calling an "advisory committee to solicit gaming industry feedback and explore the viability of a West Coast event in late spring 2007 focused on the gaming and entertainment marketplace."
