E3 keynote Governor greeted by "just over two dozen attendees"

How completely embarrassing. According to this Gamespot piece, opening E3 keynote speaker and Texan Governor, Rick Perry, spoke this morning to an audience of less then 30 people.

Perry apparently spoke at length about how great Texas is as a home for developers. The report makes it sound scintillating.

Entertainment Software Association president Michael Gallagher warmed the crowd up with a bit of biographical background on Perry, then introduced a video clip featuring some of the biggest names in Texas' game development community: Junction Point Studios head Warren Spector, BioWare's Gordon Walton and Rich Vogel, and NCsoft's Starr Long. The four developers talked about the reasons to make games in Texas, from the talent pool to the cost of living and lack of income tax.

"I think they need to know that Texas rocks," Walton explained. "Texas is a great place to make games."

Not cool, ESA.
