Some [kinda] no-name site is claiming that E3 is over and it will be announced in 48 hours... but now I'm seeing it on a lot more sites.

None of them are 100% sure though... so I guess we'll know once (/if) they make the anouncement.

If this happens, video games will suck. I&#39;ll have no clue about anything that&#39;s happening.

...

You&#39;re not expected to stay awake waiting for it. : &#092;



Even if this does happen, i wont really mind, as much as i love e3, i only really watch it for nintendo, and some PC titles, but mostly nintendo... and since nintendo would obviously then have a show solely for themselves, it&#39;d be our own e3, but just fer us. D:

That&#39;d be cool, but then, knowing G4, there would be no coverage of it. >_> Even if there was, they would crack jokes at everything.

Well, there isn&#39;t that much to show off anymore of the next generation. I would doubt that they would cancel it permanently though.

But hopefully it&#39;s just a rumour or something...this totally sucks. I&#39;ve always wanted to go to E3.

I don&#39;t pay much attention. I like suprises.

I highly doubt thats right, E3 is just too big of an event to be cancelled just like that.

I knew about this out on a News story (http://uk.gamespot.com/news/6154897.html?sid=6154897)on Gamespot is reporting that the ESA (Entertainment Software Association) will make an announcement tomorrow regarding the future of E3. .

The format of the event is also rumoured to change and instead of the huge booths taking up masses of floor space, it would change to a meeting room type of event. This would ease pressure on developers to rush preview builds reducing costs and also saving on travel expenses.

The story has also appeared in numerous places such as Next-gen who paint a gloomier picture for the event&#39;s future and also on Ars Technica look at the reasons why this may be happening to the event.

In my opinion, after the event going on for 7 or so years now, I think this would be beneficial for the industry as a whole, perhaps more money could be spent on the game development and help devs meet deadlines. An official announcement is due tomorrow. :yes:
