CES is barely over and now thoughts are already turning to E3 in June. Helping fuel thoughts of E3 is the announcement of the first official confirmed list of exhibitors for the 2011 E3 show. The best news is that all of the big guys look to be making an appearance, which is (of course) great news.
All of the usual suspects look to be a part of the event, which is said to be fueling the thought that this could actually be the best E3 show in quite some time. We looked at the best and we didn’t see anyone missing, so this might be the show to see.
Quite a bit is being expected from E3 this year, as a number of titles are expected to be announced for one of the most intense holiday selling seasons on record. In addition, we should get a real sneak preview of what the next round of titles is going to look like in 2012.
In other news of note, ESA will be attempting to deal with the ticket problems and combat counterfeit, scalped, and misplaced badges/passes, as they are not pre-mailing badges to journalists this year, which is sure to make more than a few of them unhappy. We are suspecting it will be harder to get a ticket this year, but we will have to wait and see how this works out.
