E3: Sony vs. Nintendo in the West Hall (again) [Update 1]

GamesIndustry.biz made an
interesting observation about the
recently-released E3 floor plan: as per usual, Sony and Nintendo have the largest booths, and they are right next to
each other in the West Hall of the Convention Center. In fact, their two booths combine take up 3/4 of the West Hall
(with Nintendo's turf just a tad bigger than Sony's).
Why would this be a big deal? Well, if Nintendo and
Sony are to show off their respective next-generation consoles at this year's E3, visitors will be able to gauge
popularity by easily comparing the lengths of each company's lines ... of people waiting to play their consoles. We
envision a full-scale war between the two booths, or at least a duel to decide control over the wild west (hall)*.
* Okay, no more bad puns, we promise.
[Update: many of you showed me the error in my
ways, that Nintendo's booth was actually the bigger of the two ... my eyes have once again deceived me. Also, to
clarify, no more bad puns for the rest of this post. We make no promises for any other articles throughout the
remainder of the site. Thank you very much.]
