Following a few great games for the gaming world, with awesome and surprise announcement, E3 2009 is over and, despite some companies refusing to come because of the swine flu, the media summit was considered a real success by the organizers.
With just 41,000 attendees (fewer than past E3 shows and even less people than 2008’s Penny Arcade Expo), the show was a real successful and, as a result, ESA is already thinking about the 2010 edition of the trade show which should rock more than ever – hopefully with no problems like recession or swine flu keeping people away from the fair.
EA’s CEO John Riccitiello said: “E3 2009 reflected the vitality, innovation and global presence of a rapidly growing industry. I’m already looking forward to next year’s event.”
If you’re looking forward to E3 2010, make sure you have nothing planned between June 15-17, since that’s when the next trade show will take place. There was no official announcement on why the organizers decided to delay it by two weeks next year, but as long as we’ll all have fun, I am sure nobody will mind for waiting a little longer.
