It would appear to be rather obvious that they shouldn’t, but GameTrailers’ Geoff Keighley – co-chairman of the awards – has said that no decision’s been made yet.

“A precedent has been set that in the past, judges have voted on games that have been presented off the show floor at hotel suites and across the street from E3,” said Keighley.
