Will Wright Says E3 Is "The Walking Dead"

Illustration for article titled Will Wright Says E3 Is "The Walking Dead"

Whoah, little late on the post-E3 navel-gazing aren't we, Will? That's OK. Spore's probably been keeping you very busy. Anyway, Wright's message is a little different from the usual "love it/hate it" thing. He's just sad that it's dead and doesn't know it.

It almost feels like a zombie at this point; it's the walking dead. It's such an abrupt end to what was E3, which had been this huge escalating arms race....Right now we're in this kind of dicey, do we have an event, what event is it, which one do we go to? I think we're in an uncomfortable transition zone when really the real E3 died a couple of years ago.

Probably the best analogy yet. You can't bring it back, it's already dead, so all that's left is either let it keep wandering around causing harm or suck it up and put it out of its misery. Will Wright: E3 is "the walking dead" [Gamesindustry.biz] [Image]

Awww, I was hoping it would be more like a Franken-Convention and not a Zombie Event, but I can't argue with Will about the situation though. The folks running E3 pretty much killed the event a few years back, and now all sorts of other events are filling in the shoes and boothbabes in its place.
