E3 2010 Attendance Numbers, E3 2011 Receives Date
It's always amazing how quickly E3 moves, and just how fast we can put it all behind us and focus on the coming year.
This year's Electronic Entertainment Expo is complete, and the Entertainment Software Association has released the attendance numbers for the show: around 45,600 attendees from 90 different countries around the globe came to attend the major press conferences and visit booths from 300 different exhibitors. These statistics are a bit higher than E3 2009, which saw 41,000 attendees storm the Los Angeles Convention Center. Speaking of the LACC, this is where E3 2011 will be; the ESA has announced the show's return to the popular arena, and next year's event will run from June 7 through June 9. Highlights from E3 2010 include Sony's PlayStation Move and 3D presentations, Microsoft's Kinect and Xbox 360 Slim, the 3DS and a new Zelda from Nintendo, and other big-name games like Gears of War 3, Twisted Metal, and Killzone 3. We have no idea what awaits us at E3 2011 but in all honesty, we don't really care right now. We'll just recover from E3 2010 and thank God that summer isn't loaded down with high-profile titles.
But of course, we're only mere months away from the inevitable fall crunch, which is bound to be just as insane as ever.
