Back in 2007, I went to E3 for the first time and it was a horrible show. I could have seen more new video games standing in the Best Buy game isle than were on display that year. Thankfully, E3 went back to the much larger format for 2009 that it used years ago and it seems the show was a success again.
According to the Entertainment Software Association, the group that puts on the E3 Expo each year, 2009 was a success. The show had over 41,000 attendees from 78 different countries and had 216 exhibitors. The best news was that the booth babes were back at the show this year.
