That's interesting that it's going to be in July... Most of the big summer games will already have been released; GTA4, Metal Gear Solid 4, Ninja Gaiden 2, Battlefield BC, Borne Conspiracy, Haze, Grid, Boom Blox, Wii Fit....

The press coverage should be clearly focused on what's coming up right before the holidays. I think everyone is expecting some big announcements.

Edit: Looking at the release schedules for PS3/360... 2008 is going to be a very diverse year for gaming.
Currently Playing: Halo: Reach, Borderlands, and Burnout: Paradise.

Nothing new to report, except that Texas Governor Rick Perry, who plays centipede in the nude, (J/k) will be attending.

I'm worried about little to no news on the 'net about the July convention. Except for some e-mails from Konomi and Capcom, things are a bit too silent.

I've heard through the grapevine many more game companies are considering pulling out of the ESA. Not sure how that will affect E3 although it is safe to say that game companies that leave the ESA means they don't care much what happens to E3, especially with the new format and all.

dude I'm definitely calling this as the last E3. it would take some special kind of magic for there to be an E3 09. At best it's a pony show for some of the lesser companies to show their 'loyalty' to ESA or something. and then it ends there.

All these companies want the "journalists" on their own turf where they control the message 100% without competing for your attention.

i would concur. I think E3 is dead but I don't consider this good.

I'll be there. I've got my hotel booked and my car rental taken care of. I'm driving down Monday the 14th. I've got meetings informally booked with SEGA and Nyko so far. I've been invited the the Sony press conference as well as Nintendo. I'm sure things will begin to pick up in the next couple weeks as to other companies scheduling meetings. Good times, though.

I do hope this isn't the last E3, I hope they can rework it so that it can benefit everyone.

Now playing: Gears of War: Judgment, Fire Emblem

Woohoo, can't wait for E3. Haven't had a good press conference for a while. Miss those huge announcements.

I'll probably try sneaking in this year like I did last E3 at LA. Steal a E3 lanyard from the trash throw it on, tuck it into your tshirt and run on by. I remeber almost peeing my pants when one of the booth babes pulled it out of my shirt and said, "Someones bad..."

i'm curious to see what Nintendo has in the bag for the Wii. I think they mentioned stuff about not forgetting the hard core gamer. i love the excitement of E3 and the surge of news that comes with it. I'd like to see what Valve will reveal... portal 2 details?

i also can't wait for CAGs coverage of all things Niko. have at it Shipwreck.

You must be thinking of the GTA IV lead; Nyko is the company that makes peripherals with a great PR team.

No Atlus at E3 this year. Major loss for me. :(

No Persona 4 news. No next-gen SMT game news. :(

I'm *still* waiting for news on Suikoden 6.

Other than that......not much else.

Me or you have to be reading that floor plan wrong. On my end, it sure as hell looks bigger than that.

Your're right it's 20x20. Still smaller than the E3's of old.
