In the wake of just-released information about the new mini-E3, we present to you this guide to getting an invite to the new, downsized show.
An invite-only event in which publishers decide which outlets get to cover them creates conflicts of interest. Given limited space, publishers will naturally want to invite only those outlets that give them favorable coverage (and positive reviews). Some sites will take the cue and will obligingly pull punches. It could get ugly.
