    While E3 2006 was a blow out for the show, with 400 companies exhibiting and over 60,000 people turning up to get their first play on the PS3 and the Wii, this year, there will be just 32 exhibitors and around 3,000 attendees, according to the Entertainment Software Association.

    The focus of the event is on small-scale business meetings rather than on big public demonstrations. Whilst E3 was always supposed to be a trade-only event, it turned out that anybody savvy enough to register a blog could get a press pass, which rather defeated the purpose of the whole thing.

    Companies such as Microsoft, Nintendo, Sony, Sega, Electronic Arts, Eidos, Atari, Square Enix, Take Two, and others will be present. The event will take place in July.

    I knew this was gonna be coming. I thought they were eventually doing away with this but now it seems like they are making it small scale and more cost efficient.
