Creating Annual Pages[edit]

Suggestion to create a yearly page for future E3s like Electronic Entertainment Expo 2009, this would be similar to other large yearly conventions/awards like the Academy Awards which have yearly pages for each event like 81st Academy Awards. I believe the E3 expo is arguably the largest annual event in video gaming with almost every major console, portable, hardware or major accessory to be revealed at press conferences during the event. I believe there is also enough content due to the large coverage of the event by almost every major gaming new site like Kotaku, Gamespot, IGN and 1up.com, each year also contains many notable announcements such as new major video games or major developments regarding the gaming industry made there. There is also a lot of post event coverage including awards given to the games revealed, displayed or announced during the event. Each major gaming company would also usually make a promise or comment about the event in advance which shows how big a presence the event has in the industry.

Each page should have several sections like: Layout, Notable games showcased, Notable exhibitors, Press Conferences, Pre-show Hype, Media Coverage, Attendance, History, Awards.KiasuKiasiMan (talk) 11:11, 16 December 2009 (UTC)

RE: However, it did not replicate E3's success and was abandoned, whereas the E3 2009 returned to an open access format.

Open access?

The www.e3expo.com 2011 web page states:

Is the show open to the public?
No, E3 Expo is not open to the general public. E3 Expo is a trade event and only professionals from the industry will be allowed to attend. Individuals who are not able to document their direct and current professional affiliation to the interactive entertainment industry are not qualified to attend E3 Expo.

By open access what do you mean? Definitely not open to the public. I removed whereas the E3 2009 returned to an open access format. as it is incorrect or is misleading. Errectstapler (talk) 21:33, 27 April 2011 (UTC)
