E308: EA Head 'Hates E3 This Way' Ubi Boss Agrees >
2008/07/18 13:29:09: Posted by DM
Both the head of EA, John Riccitiello and the head of Ubisoft, Laurent Detoc, agree that E3 is just not what it used to be.

"I hate E3 like this," said John Riccitiello, Electronics Arts' CEO. "Either we need to go back to the old E3, or we'll have to have our own private events."

Laurent Detoc, president of Ubisoft North America, concurred. "E3 this year is terrible," he said. "The world used to come to E3. Now it's like a pipe-fitters show in the basement."

The show has been going through an identity crisis since it disbanded due to money reasons 2 years ago. If things stay this way, it looks like E for All will be the year's big show.

We can blame Sony for the current problem with E3!

2006 was the last "BIG" E3 show.

However, 2006 was the show Microsoft put ALL of their cards on the table and completely DESTROYED Sony!

83% of the people voted that Microsoft had the best show. 12% voted for Nintendo. Only 5% voted for Sony.

Afterwards, Sony said that they would never again attend an E3 event like that. Obviously, the reason was because Bill Gates himself came to the show for the first time and tore Sony apart...that introduction of Halo 3 from Bill Gates is LEGENDARY!

After Sony said they were not going to attend an E3 event like that anymore, EA opened their big mouths and said "Since we release a large percentage of our games on the PS2, PS3, and PSP, we will not attend anymore either, since Sony won't be attending."

EA appears to be willing to go back to the "BIG" way of doing things, but the reason why that can't happen is because Sony has said they are NOT willing to attend an event like that anymore.

Blame Sony for this problem!

Well...I suppose you could blame Bill Gates, too, since he is the guy who completely DESTROYED Sony, which is what did motivate Sony not to attend anymore.

But then again, you could blame the LIAR Ken Kutaragi, of Sony. If it wasn't for his BIG LIES about the Playstation being better than a PC, Microsoft never would have been motivated to enter the console market.

Ultimately, thanks to Kutaragi's big mouth, and the incredibly job Microsoft has done with the Xbox 360, and the incredibly disappointing job Sony has done with the Playstation 3, Sony's PS3 will finish in last place in terms of worldwide sales this generation.

Microsoft is so confident of that, they PUBLICLY said so at E3!

now thats the biggest piece of shit lie i've ever heard. there's no doubt that Sony had a horrible e3 in 2006, but to claim that Sony didnt want to go to e3 ever again because of it is the exact thing a marketing tool like yourself would say. and given that i've done numerous seaches for that very claim you are making and found nothing proves that you are lying out your ass.

I just think E3 blew a$$ this year period. All 3 companies disappointed me. It used to be about the games. Now were tlaking about [email protected] ass Mii's, avatars, and Home. If it weren't for the fact that I love games I would tell all 3 companies to suck my @#$%

incoming00 just ignore him, once you do that it's like he doesn't exist. E3 can be saved by bring back to the booth babes, we should create a petition.

PimpDaddy: Everything you said is how i feel about E3 and this social avatards movement from all 3 companies.
