E3 had record breaking views on Twitch last year and had the largest attendance since 2005. But yeah, it's irrelevant now just because Sony backed out, lol. 

I agree though that it was smart for EA not to do a conference this year though, EA's conference last year was a total clusterf*ck. 

Record breaking views on twitch shows it's irrelevance, depends on which way you look at. It demonstrates social media/online streaming is where you can obtain audiences and save tons of cash by not bothering with E3. Hence EA is doing it's own shows, like Nintendo have done for a while now.

I tend to agree with what Sony said  E3 needs to be early in the year their take on it was from the trade side of the conference were by June  the game releases up to the end of the year have already been set and the stock orders made , that only leaves the public and press,  the press are now in the age of the nonstop 24/7 news cycle so the value of E3 has diminished in that respect compared to what it once represented and that leaves the public and they can and are being be catered for in more cost effective ways .
