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.

Maybe Will Wright will open his own convention that focusses entirely on Spore....



maybe 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.

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.

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?

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.

Could Will have known?

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?

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.
