It seems gaming fans are not the only ones to notice that E3 should never have changed.
EA has been taking steps by scheduling meetings with the Entertainment Software Association to discuss the problems of the current E3 format. They hope to bring E3 back to the way it was before, with public access and the attendance of thousands of gamers. President of EA Sports, Peter Moore, has described this year's event as "soulless," while EA's CEO himself, John Riccitiello, stated, "I hate E3 like this."
Laurent Detoc, president of Ubisoft America, said, "E3 this year is terrible. The world used to come to E3. Now it's like a pipe-fitters show in the basement."
Hopefully the ESA will take these opinions into serious consideration and open E3 to everybody again. EA may not be every gamer's favorite company, but any gamer can certainly appreciate them for their current efforts on this front.
