E3 could be better than expected

90% of exhibitor space already sold
With the announcement that E3 Expo would return to a more “classic” format, many were not sure that this would alone be enough to get companies excited about coming back to the show once again.
However, it seems that those who suggested that the show was all but dead are in for a bit of a surprise in the next that 90 percent of allotted exhibition space is already sold and the show has 100 exhibitors signed up and over 40,000 attendees signed up to attend.
The show is set to take place in Los Angeles at the Convention Center on June 2nd thru the 4th. Many studios are already suggesting that we will see more announcements and demos than we saw last year reflecting the fact that the studios are bit happier with the new format and the amount of exposure that expect for the show this year.
Many of our sources in the gaming industry have told us that they expect to make announcements for titles at E3 this year. While some of the information about these titles has been making their way to us over the past couple of weeks, from what we hear despite the current economic climate, publishers and developers are banking on E3 to announce and launch titles this year.
