The E3 Strikes Back

As summer burns closer, so does the desire for E3.  The Electronics Entertainment Expo is returning to the Los Angeles Convention Center.  Last year, the LACC hosted an enormous, three-day event that housed hundreds of exhibits, and thousands of fans.

The annual entertainment trade show, presented by the Entertainment Software Association, is considered to be the 'ultimate expo in the video game industry', with little room for argument.


After an overwhelming 70,000 attendees in 2005 and 60,000 attendees in 2006, the expo was unfortunately limited to invitation only guests and legitimate members of the media.



Sadly, that tradition carries on, as some of video game's biggest fans are left to revel in the post-mayhem pictures and slideshows - like the one I made last year!  Check out some of the photos!

  10. Attendance issues always screw over the fun. I couldn't go to my beer fest this year for that very reason. 10,000 people showed up last year, and they had to reduce that... At least we have pictures.
