"We have just received word from the ESA that E3 2009 will be a much bigger show, although the rumor that the public will be invited turned out to be just that. The show will now welcome "all qualified computer and video game industry audiences, including international and U.S.-based media, analysts, retailers, developers and business partners to preview the latest in interactive entertainment and technology." The show will take place June 2 to June 4 in 2009 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

After conducting both qualitative and quantitative research, ESA officials stated changes were necessary to better meet the needs of both exhibitors and attendees—these changes include increased booth sizes, increased qualified audiences, and an intensified focus on reinforcing the high-octane growth, innovation, and captivating entertainment that are driving the computer and video game industry," the ESA stated. Even better news it that more companies will be eligible to participate, including non-ESA members. Let's hope for a few more surprises than we saw the past few years; the return of a Kentia Hall-type environment at the show would be welcome"

E3 has turned to an epic fail, totally unfun, boredom and uptight measures to kill the event and make it profitable, deserted booths, costumed fanbois not allowed, professional invitations only to get ads to the medias...

Damn there's more sincere passion for gaming around a tabletop rpg than in all these years of E3 suxness.
