Will Wright: E3 is “The Walking Dead”

Will Wright, in an interview with Games Industry Biz stated that E3 2008 was like “the living dead”, who said:

“It almost feels like a zombie at this point; it’s the walking dead. It’s such an abrupt end to what was E3, which had been this huge escalating arms race… I understand why they really pulled the plug on the big E3. Looking at the amount of money a company like EA would spend on it, it was ridiculous amounts of money just to be present and competitive with everyone else, so I think they were looking for a way to sign the arms treaty and de-escalate the whole thing.”

He concluded:

“Right now we’re in this kind of dicey, do we have an event, what event is it, which one do we go to? I think we’re in an uncomfortable transition zone when really the real E3 died a couple of years ago.”

Do you miss the E3 which was more of a fanfest? Let us know.
