After this year's E3 event, it feels more and more obvious the format is in very serious decline. Even if we take out the corona effect on live shows, the fact that companies can use digital presentations and social media to show their titles whenever they want without having to deal with the serious expenses of live shows is something clearly eroding E3's usefulness. This year, Sony decided to just not bother showing up in favour of their own presentation sometime down the line, and some of the companies who did show up frankly had no reason to (I still don't get why T2 even bother with a presentation with zero games). This makes me think that, once companies become more comfortable with their Direct style presentations, they just won't bother with E3. So how long until E3 becomes unsustainable and just dissapears completely?
You know it deserves the GOTY.
