    “This year’s E3 propelled video games to the pinnacle of the entertainment world,”

    It certainly did…until everyone walked away disappointed.

    On the plus side…woo-hoo! Less than 12 months to the next E3 :D

    Question about E3.

    Why wouldn’t Sony and Naughty Dog (for example) want to hold off on announcing a game as huge as Uncharted 3 until this weeks E3? I mean, if they were able to keep it leak free (I’m sure Naughty Dog could if they wanted to) it would have been the biggest surprise and game of the show for sure. I don’t understand what they gain from announcing a title such as this earlier than E3. I would have made U3 the ace up my sleave for E3 if I was sony.

    Anyone have thoughts on the matter?
