Game Publishers Taking Care Of E3 Invites

As more news continues to flow regarding the transformation of E3 into two separate industry shows, we find out something interesting about the E3 Media and Business Summit, which is kinda like the "new" Electronic Entertainment Expo.

According to ESA president Doug Lowenstein, who spoke to GameSpot yesterday, next year's show will have a "mostly hands-off policy."

"[The] ESA does not control invites," Lowenstein said. Apparently, the ESA will be provided with a bunch of names from ESA members, and then in turn use that as the basis for creating a list of invitees.

"[T]he point is for attendees to be the people participants want to see in one-on-one meetings...[but] that is not for me to say or influence, finished Lowenstein."

The role of the ESA in this whole process should be limited, and Lowenstein added that they're not making any independent decisions, and they won't be creating a private list of names, either. It appears it's all up to the game publishers at this point.

Guess we're just going to have to find some of those ESA members and give it a shot. This includes most of the major industry publishers like EA and Activision, and of course, the three console makers (Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo). Looks like some of you are going to have to start sweet-talking the big-wigs.
