The point of E for All was to provide gaming to the masses, replacing the mega E3 of yore. However, it doesn't look like E for All will come anywhere close to the comprehensiveness of a traditional E3 show. The biggest absence in the upcoming consumer show? Sony. Sony Computer Entertainment Americ...

E3 died and every other convention seemed to benefit. The Game Developers Conference got more exposure this year than ever before and now the 2007 Leipzig Games Convention is filling in their lederhosen and reports a 40% growth. The growth is apparently due to international exhibitors from outside o...

E For All is coming up in October and us press types have gotten ourselves invited. With Nintendo backing the show, our invite was easily secured and we managed to also coerce* some discount action for you, fine reader. That's right, we've got 50 (count 'em, 50!) invites up for grabs, set aside espe...

Remember those suffocating crowds and the completely non-game-related overload that eventually caused a restructuring at E3? If not, we certainly do, and you won't find us complaining about a more focused approach for 2007. Of course, toning down the antics inevitebly leads to less attendees, and ...

Looks like E for All, IDG's open-to-the-public E3-wannabe, has signed up Nintendo to be an "anchor" exhibitor when the expo hits LA this October. The four-day event touts the presence of Nintendo, their "flagship" exhibitor, as a demonstration of the "importance of a broad consumer-focused event f...

Those of you so deeply saddened and hurt by E3's sudden departure can take heart, as there's a new trade show coming to town, and hopefully it'll be half as good as the tried-and-true Electronic Entertainment Expo of days past. Slated to open its doors to the public and adoring media on October 18th...

The "E" referring to "Entertainment" mind you, not the easily obtainable street drug. Let's face it, the joke comparing gaming trade shows to free-for-all drug parties practically tells itself. On the topic of terrible and somewhat inappropriate jokes, Gamepro's website has officially revealed the...
