Forums - Gaming Discussion - How to Revive E3?

After covid 19, that's it.
Companies are going to stream their announcements and that's how it will be, I feel.

Best thing would be to copy Gamescom or TGS but offer better the management for demo playing.

It’s coming back next year. End of day it’s the biggest gathering of the worlds biggest developers. Anything else is fluff.



Xbox: Best hardware, Game Pass best value, best BC, more 1st party genres and multiplayer titles. 

 

Simple get all the main players together including Sony and sort out what they want E3 to be, by asking questions like does it still see itself being a trade show and if so how do they answer the problems from a retail buyer's standpoint of wanting to finalise stock orders by the end of the 1st quarter or are they just there to showcase product to the media/public that way they can make adjustments an example would be having a trade only focused E3 early in the year followed by a media /public E3 with each tailored to the target audience, but what ever they do a meeting of the relevant stakeholders is needed.



Easy, call it Space World. Make it totally focused on Nintendo content !

Wait, there's other companies ?!

Make your own !

Open it to the public. Otherwise, let it die. I couldn't care less if E3 went away.

But would Nintendo really be into reviving Space World?



And a Nintendo direct can sell hype in February or March without E3 thus not needing it. No one needs E3 anymore. Why they keep branching away and doing their own shows.

Honestly, I don't get the "E3 is dying" stuff at all. If anything, I've seen more coverage of the happenings around E3 than ever. The health of the floor show is neither here nor there. If the purpose of the event is to provide a platform for selling products, then it's still easily the most successful there is. Even companies that don't show up still usually piggy-back off of it.

It feels like this is some silly YouTube personalities groupthink that keeps getting pushed. And the same people bemoaning the death of it will spend a whole weak providing breathless coverage of it followed by wrap-up discussions and gradings on how everyone did. Exactly why is such a thing "dying" just because the show floor isn't as central as it used to be.

Fact is, E3 is there to sell hype.  The method for generating that hype doesn't matter.  That showing no signs of dying.

The problem isn't the show floor it's the trade show aspect of E3, in today's world of stock management they have a tendency to want  most of their orders locked in by the end of the first quarter, so in this environment a June E3 is seen by retail to be held too late, like I posted earlier E3 needs to have a meeting with all its stakeholders including Sony and define E3's role in today's market by answering questions like do they still see themselves as a tradeshow or has their role shifted toward highlighting up and coming games and related products for the media/public and whether that means an earlier trade focused show for retail followed by a june E3 aimed at the Media and public or it stays the same,they need to meet and look at their direction.
