Photo TR: E3 - Electronics Entertainment Expo

Postby robbalvey » Wed May 18, 2005 9:23 pm

Hey everyone!

So today was the 1st day of E3, the huge trade show dedicated to everything videos games. While this might not be completely "theme park related" going to E3 certainly feels like a Theme Park sometimes! =)

This must be one of the biggest trade shows in the world, because from the moment you step into the place it just feels like a billion dollars was spent on it!

I was there primarily to show off the game I'm working on "Call of Duty 2:Big Red One" but I did get a few minutes to run around to some other booths and click a few pictures.

The show was everything I come to expect from an E3 - BUSY, LOUD, and a TON of games being shown off!

This was a particularly more crowded E3 I think mainly because all the major console manufacturers were showing off new hardware. Except that unless you were willing to wait in a long line to see a video, or were there as a member of the press, there wasn't too much to see.

But anyway, here are a few photos that I took today....More photos to come later on in this thread so keep reading!

Ahh, E3....Atari has secured that logo on the building as long as I can remember!
e3_5.jpg
Microsoft was showing off the XBOX 360, except there wasn't too much to see other than some videos.
e3_9.jpg
Did I mention how crowded the XBOX booth was???
e3_11.jpg
There were still plenty of current generation XBOX game to play, though.
e3_4.jpg
Even Boba Fett was there to check out the XBOX 360!
e3_15.jpg
Nintendo announced the "Nintendo Revolution" but there wasn't anything that I saw at the booth about it.
e3_21.jpg
This year it was all about the Nintendo DS.
e3_19.jpg
There was even a Nintendo DS "Downloading Station" where you could get E3 exlcusive games. I might have to bring my DS to the show tomorrow! =)
e3_25.jpg
As you can see, this was a VERY popular feature at the booth!
e3_22.jpg
But this is what I came to the Nintendo booth to see! :P

Nintendo also announced a new GBA, the "Game Boy Micro" as shown here by one of the booth babes.

More photos....
e3_18.jpg
At the Sony booth they were welcoming "Chang 3" and I was all "COOL!!! Credit!!!" but I didn't see any B&M stand-ups anywhere. =(
e3_20.jpg
If you did want to see "Chang 3" you had to stand in line...just like at an amusement park, but there wasn't a credit at the end of the line, so I didn't bother.
e3_16.jpg
Hi Cal...how's it going? :P
e3_17.jpg
I asked the sales people and they said they still weren't sure if Kansas City got any more PSP's in stock. ;)
e3_10.jpg
Ahh, this is where I'm calling "my office" for 3 days this week!
e3_8.jpg
Our booth was guarded by only the best from American's 1st infantry division.
e3_12.jpg
We also had a cool bunker and a turret to keep out those Medal of Honor spies!!!
e3_7.jpg
"Your papers please?"
e3_26.jpg
And finally, the only game that really matters...Katamari Damacy 2! See more E3 photos on the next page.....

Oh, yeah...and check out AOL Games because I did an on camera interview with them today! I have no idea if they'll actually use it.

I also did one for a French TV station, but I doubt we'll ever see that here!

E3 for some reason also reminds me of a really big "Innoventions"

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Cool Pics Robb, thanks from those of us that don't have the priviledge of being able to sit in LA traffic, fight for parking and enjoy this event. :D

OK I admit it... I first looked at the girls (I am still a guy - that's what we do)
Then I looked at the game (I am still a kid - a big one - but still a kid - and that's what kids do)
But then I saw this face behind the girl. Is that a DEAD body? or did he just take something...

BTW. thanks for sharing. Man... your job ROCKS... (Do you even call it a job?)
