E3 2012 Sees 45,700, Generates $40 Million For LA
Hey, E3 is good for everyone!
The ESA (Entertainment Software Association) has revealed the stats for this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo, and a whole lot of people attended the event. The local economy enjoyed a boost, too.
Over 45,700 people showed up at E3 2012, and the event managed to generate $40 million for host city Los Angeles. However, there have been rumors that E3 might leave LA next year; earlier reports have stated that the ESA is considering a logistical shift if planned construction at the LA Convention Center gets in the way. For the record, most all E3s have taken place at that one location. Only twice has it been elsewhere.
The show didn't provide gamers with the any new next-generation hardware, as Sony and Microsoft were mute on that subject, but at least the games impressed. We especially loved the Beyond: Two Souls unveiling, that bad-ass God of War: Ascension and The Last Of Us gameplay, as well as that pretty damn amazing Watch Dogs from Ubisoft.
What were your favorite moments?
