Geoff Keighley skipping E3 for first time in 25 years.

Recommended Posts

I read they want to allow more paid entrants and have "experiences" where you watch influencers and celebs play games. Sounds fucking garbage especially after the ESA doxxed everyone last year.

Seattle is also closer to Nintendo, MS, and Valve.

That means we should have a convention called 3rdParty-3  and it will pretty much show every game except Sony and Nintendo exclusives.

A 100 perfect of msoft’s are third party, so msoft can do the dirty work.

Sony's decision is genius in retrospect.

By the sounds of Geoff's statement, there's some really shitty politics going on there, so if anything it just makes it all less surprising.  It's probably not that Sony WANTED to ditch it... just that it was becoming less and less of something that Sony wanted to be a part of.

 

I wonder which other companies will decide to put the final nail in the coffin?

I don't know, have they released a floor plan yet?

The rumours of Sony not attending are also based on a falling out with the ESA. Something is definitely happening behind the scenes. 
Sony though do now appear to be making the correct decision. Looks a lot better having others leave after you then to be the last one there standing.

Shit, Microsoft might just take over E3 and basically make it their event then. 

they should keep the “3” since Xbox will be a distant third again.
