Sorry Matt, but you'll have less opportunity to show off that Red Dragon shirt to the ladies.

Good, the less babes the better. I could care less if they are eye candy, it's the games that are important! Ha, I've never been to E3 so I'm not one to talk, but I always found them stupid/trashy. When my bro comes back from E3 this year, there will be more game pics and less babe pics.

That is one of the dumbest moves I ever heard of.

Horrible decision. Booth babes have become a part of E3 and something most guys attending look forward to seeing them (either at the show or at the pictures).

They weren't that attractive at all when I went last year. Most of them must have been on the wrong side of 30, and up close you could tell why they were booth babes and not models. No loss really.

Do you have to be 18 to get into E3?


I love it when the governing body who imposes the new policy has "sole discretion to determine what is acceptable".

I don't think booth babes themselves are banned. Rather there's a new dress code.

i really don't care. It's been a nice little thing to have around for E3 and a way to make things more enjoyable, but not necissary.

I do say though Tokyo Game Show would not be the same without boothbabes so I can understand how this would be to most people... hey, at least they aren't banning females in general.

Well I hope that they do cut down a bit on the babes. I want too see more resources put into having games Playable. I didn't travel all the way to LA to watch a movie of a video game. I actually want to play the damn thing and not have to wait in line 40 minutes while the loser infront of me trys figure out what the A button does.

When it comes to booth babes nintendo has the best. They are nice looking, friendly, and actually know how the game works they are standing next to.

As soon as I saw this thread thats what I thought of. I remember reading the thread that guy made on a different forum. The story and his pics were hilarious but at the same time wrong.

I am all for this. It is in all gamers' best interest that gaming be taken seriously. You can't have it both ways--either it's a viable medium of expression or it's an adoloescent male nerd-geek ghetto. And if it's the latter, then expect tons of regulation going forward.

Get your eye candy somewhere else. Politically, this is not the time to be feeding ammunition to the opposition.

I kinda hope they start doing this with other conventions too. When my ex and I used to go to these things, he'd make me take pictures of him with booth babes and then comment about how much better they are than me...

Why are there never any hot guys at video gaming conventions?

I don't believe the developers have much of a part in the booth babe process since they're busy working on the games before the show. You act like they just laze around for the month or so before the show and that's the reason why not everything is playable. It's not playable because it's not finished up to the point that most of the other playable games are and offering playable versions would have a chance of putting people off on the game.

You read it. You can't unread it.

Bad decision in my opinion. You won't be seeing too many pretty lady gamers there, so they fill the void with mindless yet scantily clad females.

Tell me about it. Beautiful women marketing and promoting products isn't anything new. From the above video Japan looks like they can handle it, why not us? I swear, people in this country get uptight over the STUPIDEST stuff.
