PC gamers should not expect much in the way of news from next week’s Electronic Entertainment Expo, according to Dean Takahashi on VentureBeat.
Microsoft’s Kevin Unangst, senior global director of Windows gaming, told Takahashi:
As it has morphed, E3 has fundamentally become a console show. We didn’t want to just squeeze out some time at a console show… There have been a lot of trend pieces about how PC gaming is dying when that is absolutely not happening. It’s growing exponentially, thanks to online games, and even faster than the rest of the market.
Said Rahul Sood of HP’s high-end VoodooPC game computer line:
E3 used to be the mecca of gaming. I’m skipping it because it’s not what it used to be. Now it’s just an event called E3.
