New version of E3 kicks off 13th June, 2023

E3 2023 official logo June 2023

We all thought that E3 was pretty much defunct due to the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic and the rise in streaming with software and hardware companies doing their own presentations online. However, Reedpop which hosts events, partners with gaming websites and video channels, has teamed up with the Entertainment Software Association to revitalise it. E3 2023 will kicks off in Los Angeles on 13th June, 2023, though it is not clear at this point whether the big three will be attending or simply doing their own things, but it is still a way off. Games Beat is reporting that 13th -15th June, 2023 will be Business Days, reserved for industry personnel, and 15th-16th will be Gamer Days, when anyone can attend. The Entertainment Software Association says that it would like to “support and uplift” partnered digital events and showcases. We will have to wait and see whether E3 2023 takes off.

 “E3 is one of the global gaming industry’s few opportunities to come together, unite as one loud voice, and show the world what it is creating. Our vision is to reunite the industry by re-establishing the traditional E3 week, bring back that spark, and restore E3’s role as a truly magical global showcase event for game creators and consumers.”

      I know it’s the norm these days that everyone dunks on Geoff and The Game Awards but really I’ve never liked Geoff. My first time learning about him was from the Angry Joe Interview he appeared in and frankly I was appauled at Geoff’s attitude and just general demeanor. I do have some personal disagreements with Angry Joe as well but when it comes to Geoff I’m 100% with him.
      I remember there was this other time when Geoff, I think it was TGA 2015, hyped up that “something big related to Nintendo” was coming up but all it ended up being was Dead Mouse making a remix using Nintendo Music.

      1. That’s exactly my issue with Geoff, I don’t hate him because of the bandwagon, but his attitude and demeanor is so fake imo and less authentic, it also doesn’t help that the guy has an even bigger ego on his Twitter account.

  1. The gaming landscape wouldn’t feel the same without E3. A form of what it is has always been there even before I ever played games. People have been saying for a while now that Directs and other presentations have replaced the need for E3, but while those are always great fun they can’t quite match the feeling you get when E3 is right around the corner.

    The feelings that “maybe I’ll see something from the other guys that’ll make me really want their console” or “they’re saving this one big game for a reveal/info blowout for E3”; these feelings just can’t quite be caught with normal Directs and presentations. It’s like Christmas or other big holidays; you can do the same activities that you’d normally do on those days whenever you want, but it will feel off. Like a piece of magic is missing.

  2. Just like G4 no one missed, wanted, or asked for E3 to return. It is actually better the way things are because we actually get to see REAL gameplay reveals rather than crappy overhyped scripted trash and garbage cringe vomit ubisoft calls just dance, also there’s less annoying influencer doornobs taking up time before gameplay reveals.
    E3 should re.ain where it belongs… in the grave and forgotten.

    1. Yeah some of those live stage show conferences started to become really cringey. I’m happy if the big three just do their own streaming presentation to be honest. Still it’s good for the fans who are able to travel to get to play the games shown on the show floor.

    2. I’ve said it before – E3 is a fossil. It’s a relic of the time when we all had to rely on magazine reporting and 30-second clips of highly compressed gameplay footage to know what products would be released the following year. The Internet has made E3 irrelevant in almost every single way. Game previews and trailers are now nonexclusive, up-to-the-minute, and totally free for anybody with access to the web. As Sickr said – it’s nice for the few who can make it all the way out there to get to physically try out whatever’s on show, but it’s hard to get excited when the rest of us are totally left out of that. I’m sure certain game “journos” miss the free vacation and swag – but IMO the rest of us are better off without E3
