Well being sincere I don't think anyone anymore believe in the neutrality and lack of console warmongering he says he have. It is pretty clear he is a very strong supporter of MS and doesn't like Sony at all, but he keeps pretending.

Why in the world would it not be clear that I enjoy what Microsoft offers very much? In terms of hardware and services, anyway. I've stated many times I don't care much for theirs or Sony's games. I can certainly see why someone like you and others here would think I don't like Sony at all, but I don't worry about it because console warriors are gonna do what they do.

You seem to think that it is just a handful that think you don't like Sony or do warmongering.

like G4 or not... feels like since G4 left... E3 coverage has been lame... i know that people already moved to streaming the conference, but seems like we still need a more "conventional" way to broadcast E3

You seem to think anyone cares. The fact that you’re even talking about it shows you take this way more seriously than most do here. What does any of this have to do with Sony skipping E3, by the way?

Even so, it's still the biggest show out there.

Besides, it's not because you can get news by reading a blog or watching a youtube video that you can just get rid of theatre presentation and an industry conference spot where all parties are present, competing there to make the biggest show.

It's the same about those directs. Directs can get communication across as just as theatre conferences, but that doesn't mean that directs are better or worse than live theatre conferences. We can have both and in the end directs are just cheaper material, not exactly more interesting.

Youtube sure can host a bunch of trailers in a playlist so that everyone can watch them while sipping expensive Starbucks rubbish, but this is not the same experience of having a single weekend in the year of live news and presentations from a live spectacle from a real theatre and conference building where the real VIPs from all the industry parties are there working together sweating to present to the world their biggest products.

It is the biggest show indeed but that is no reason to stay the biggest.

They will be always be competing with eachother even if the timeframes between the information that is getting shown will become greater,i even think it could result in a better showing with lesser fluff and filler.I do understand the nostalgia but that is the only semi positive for me,and i can understand the people that always bought tickets to see it all in person but i just want the information and not the immersion.

Well yeah that is me and you is you so i do hope you will enjoy what is to come this year,you might even warm up to all of these changes;)

Bolded: I would never spent time to go get coffee,just making my own always tastes better :p

You're old school like me.

Well, sometimes I pick up coffee when I don't have time to make my own. To be honest I still prefer tea tho.



My Total Sales prediction for PS4 by the end of 2021: 110m+

When PS4 will hit 100m consoles sold: Before Christmas 2019

There were three ravens sat on a tree / They were as blacke as they might be / The one of them said to his mate, Where shall we our breakfast take?

I wonder how long it's going to be until all three platform holders are out of E3, and it starts getting used only by 3rd parties.

That will be so disappointing. I'll miss the days when the E3 empire was ruling the seas.

It have to do with you enjoying an opportunity to show it as bad news and decision of Sony. Like a I don't know, pattern.

"Hyping CES for a logo reveal and downplaying E3"

Uff, not a great fan service for me.

E3 was and IS important for the industry.



There once was a great sig here, but it got killed.

A moment of silence would be appreciated.

Another nail in the coffin for E3.

It seems to be the case indeed. Also with the internet as it is nowadays, it's much cheaper to simply make videos and upload them giving people all the info they need, videos like State of Play or Nintendo Direct.

I hope they still do conferences at E3 or elsewhere cause that was fun to watch but yeah, I get it, why spend millions of dollars to get a space at E3 when you can just make a video and freely upload it on Youtube whenever you want and with as much info as you'd have at E3.

I believe that if E3 wants to survive this transition they need to become a 100% people's oriented kind of event, like GamesCom or the Paris Games Week cause organizing an event just for professionals is no longer relevant. They know this since they began allowing people to attend these past years, but what I'm saying is they need to move full steam in that direction by completely opening to everyone who wishes to attend.

This is the exactly sort of attitude that is ruining this world. Let's replace a live theatre presentation with some pre cooked video with some unknown kind of female robotic voice like on State of Play. Or even cheaper, let's replace everything with just a playlist of trailers.

That's why good wood furniture was replaced by cheap furniture that don't last 3 years. That's why glass bottled coke was replaced by cheap plastic bottles that ruin the seas and cause cancer or whatever. That's why shoes that could last 10 years were replaced by Nike crap. Well, not exactly, but you know what I mean?

I do get the people that don't give a damm about e3. It's a matter of choice and taste. But I believe that certain decisions don't have to be made just because there's youtube and it sort of solves all problems.

Well I saw Sony saying E3 is important but they won't participate... didn't see they downplaying it.

Literally everyone should see it as bad news and a disappointing decision by Sony, unless you're some shill on their payroll. We're all gamers, we should all want a great E3 showing. Per usual, you aren't making sense. Do you think if MS said they were bowing out of E3 we wouldn't be seeing the same disappointment from people such as myself? I doubt there would be as much delusion regarding one companies importance to the survival of E3, but we'd still be disappointed. Either way quit bogging the thread down with your petty nonsense. At least it was entertaining when you were going on about dreaded DORMANT ACCOUNTS
