E3 "will occur" next year, say organisers

14th E3 next year

Despite rumors suggesting otherwise, the Entertainment Software Association is committed to hosting gaming's largest annual trade show for the fourteenth time next summer.

"As we do every year, we're beginning the process of surveying exhibitors and attendees to determine potential changes to the expo," an ESA representative told GameSpot on Tuesday.

"Once this is completed and shared with the ESA's Board of Directors, we will make an announcement about the specifics of the 2009 E3 Media & Business Summit, which will occur."

The show might go on, but that doesn't mean big publishers will attend. They can pull out anytime, just like Activision, Vivendi, Lucas Arts, and id Software already have amid rising membership fees and the diminishing impact of the show.

Electronic Arts, Ubisoft, and Nintendo are rumored to be exiting next year, and if that happens, expect an exodus to follow.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
