Looks like Will Wright was right about E306 being Spore's last E3.

Maybe Will Wright has the power to manipulate the future by saying stuff like this will be spores last E3

It's its last E3 because it's coming out before the next E3.

How do you know?

The repeatedly stated PLAN is to release Spore after the end of the Maxis' financial year and before the next E3.
So April -- June 2007 is the target release period.  Whether, they will hit their mark or not is the question of import.

And on topic, all that is happening to E3 is making it the INSIDER event it was always supposed to be.  No more, can I rent your pass for an hour or why is that banker here, situations.

i for one am relatively happy.

while E3 brings a wealth of information, it's just too much at once. Big publishers are much better off holding press events at their own headquarters. Where they're able to better direct their resources. What's better: a Spore booth that you can play around with the creature editor in, or a press event where you [the press] can play Spore alongside the entire staff in development headquarters. I'll gladly take the latter.


People need to understand, E3 is a press event, not a gaming convention.

Post by: aquaman on July 31, 2006, 02:11:34 pm
Maybe Will Wright will open his own convention that focusses entirely on Spore....



maybe not.

READ THIS BEFORE YOU POST HOW SAD YOU ARE THAT E3 IS CANCELLED (http://www.gamingsteve.com/blab/index.php?topic=5992.msg195378#msg195378)

Because it's not.

Whatever, I was never going to E3, and now game developers will stop rushing to create demos of their games and will be able to focus more on finishing the games faster.  That is a strange thing to come out of nowhere and do though.
Title: Re: No more E3???
Post by: 7 who ate 9 on July 31, 2006, 04:00:46 pm
I am going to repeat this for the tenth time....

E3 IS'T CANCELLED SO SHUT UP ALLREADY!

The link he sent says it itself in the quote, "The reason they might be downsizing this is because blah blah blah something about money blah blah." When  Will said that it would be Spores last E3 he meant that spore would be coming out before E3. I'm not sure if this is still true, but when he said it, it was true.

Easy big guy.. I think they get the point now.  ;) No need to get hostile.

Since it looks like it's moving from May to July 2007, hopefully Wright's proclamation that Spore has seen its last E3 means less than a year before it's in our hands. Light at the end of the tunnel?
Title: Re: No more E3???
Post by: google_video_fan on August 01, 2006, 08:36:55 am
E3 may not be cancelled, but you can bet it'll be much different.

It'll be far more trade-show oriented and cater moreso towards industry reps and major press publications.

Regardless, Wright has no connection with the ESA, so any decision made probably had nothing to do with what he said earlier. He was simply stating that it was likely Spore would be released before May.

Title: Could Will have known?
Post by: vonboy on November 30, 2006, 04:33:09 am
At the last E3, Will said that this would be Spore's last E3. could he be hinting not that spore would be released before next may, but that he knew that this would be the last E3 to ever be held?
Title: Re: Could Will have known?
Post by: DaMuncha on November 30, 2006, 04:51:49 am
The last E3 ever held of course. I hear the end of the world is coming.

Did you JUST think of this?   :( 4 U

I'm sure there's already a thread about this, but I can't seem to find it.   :-\

I'm sure Will knew it was the last open to the public E3.  He probably also knew they were moving it to July. 

Good day.

I heard that the organizers are secretly planning and alternative. E3 will still be around but a lot smaller a exclusive. They're planning for one to be more open and crazy like E3, the only difference is that there will be only games that have been in development enough to be playable. Announcements for games that are barely in R&D or Pre-Production won't be there. This will probably be more open to people to get into as well as having some music performances and concerts. This is just an excuse to get business back into the area being that E3 is now dead as we know it.

Electronic Entertainment Expo. One of the biggest Trade Shows for Electronic Games that is out there. It was the biggest but I think Gamescom in Germany is actually larger now.

Hey Sakura, welcome to the forum!  So, the Spore section here has been abandoned for a while, a lot of the threads you're posting in haven't had a reply since 2009 or 2011.  I don't know how much help we're going to be with spore technical support.  But feel free to swing by some of the other parts of the forum, too!
