Microsoft won't attend E for All
Posted by XanTium | August 25 00:47 EST | News Category: Xbox360
 
From gamesindustry.biz:


A Microsoft spokesperson has confirmed to GamesIndustry.biz that the company won't be attending the inaugural E for All Expo.
SCEA has also chosen not to participate, focusing instead on E3, Leipzig, TGS, CES, DICE and GDC, according to their spokesperson.

The E for All Expo, organised by IDG World Expo, is scheduled for October 18-21 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. It is being touted as a consumer-oriented replacement for the old E3 show.

PAX is the new E3.
E for All had people standing outside the convention center all day and night trying to hand out flyers about it... not too many people took one. Those that did threw it on the ground.

If only one of them showed up they could totally dominate the show, and win more people over. Bah, better leave it to Nintendo, it's not like Sony needs a better install base to compete with the Wii and 360..

Err, so who is coming to the show?

I should check out PAX one of these days. Except I hate Penny Arcade.

Meh....really, these shows don't excite me anymore like they used to back in the day. I don't know if it's just because I'm getting old or if it's just that i have depleted my natural serotonin levels in my wide eyed days....does anyone really get all that hyped up anymore?

There really isnt any ground breaking news, not like 10-15 years ago when modern graphics were just mindblowing! When ARM processors were like...woah, and when fog effects were first showcased on a home console!

What's the excitement now for the youth to drool over and gossip about?

It sounds like E for All will be worse then e3 this year. If none of the major players are going to it then what is the point?
