It’s that exciting time of year again. E3, the world’s biggest and baddest video games trade show, is upon us! From Monday June 14 through Thursday June 17 [experience-it-all] is your destination for the latest coverage from the major E3 press conferences and the show floor. E3, which stands for Electronic Entertainment Expo, is not open to the public. In order to gain access into the show, you must be affiliated with the interactive entertainment industry. It has been a life-long dream of mine to attend E3, and now I’ve finally found my way in. I want you to live vicariously through me by checking into the site. Throughout the course of the week I will be reporting from the show floor providing developer interviews and hands-on impressions of the latest and greatest games coming soon to video game consoles, PCs, and mobile devices near you.
E3 brings together thousands of developers who are itching to show off their games to the world. First there’s “the big three” in Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo. 2010 is the year of motion control; Microsoft will unveil the near-final version Project Natal, Sony will show off its latest foray into the motion scene with Playstation Move, and Nintendo will have to prove why Wii should remain the go-to console for interactive and motion-based gaming against the onslaught of competition. Then there’s the third-party developers including (but certainly not limited to) 2K Games, Capcom, EA, Konami, Lucas Arts, SEGA, THQ, Ubisoft, and Valve. The show floor will be packed with lavish company booths (and requisite booth babes) featuring game trailers, demos, and developers ready to answer any and all questions about their upcoming games. And I will be right there smack in the middle of it all, reporting all the latest news straight to you.
Here’s how it’s all going down. Things kick off Monday (6/14) morning at 10:30AM (PT) with the Microsoft press conference. Later that day is the “Project Natal” for Xbox 360 Experience show (read more about that here). Tuesday (6/15) jam packs the Nintendo press conference at 9:00AM, the Sony press conference at noon, and the opening day of the E3 show floor at the LA Convention Center. The convention center is stays open through Thursday (6/17). I will be on the show floor all three days with a broadcast crew, constantly pushing out posts with video and images of hands-on experiences and developer interviews.
