    The newly renamed E3 Expo is getting a makeover, in an apparent attempt to refine it's image. Formerly known as the "Electronic Entertainment Expo", it's now going by the title "E3 Media & Business Summit". Gone are the booth babes, gone is the blasting techno music and $8 microwave cheese burgers. The former chaotic atmosphere is being replaced by luxury beach-side hotels, sushi restaurants and private conference rooms. Some have said in past years that the expo had become more of a spectacle of sorts, rather than a conference. This year the expo will be toned down, bereft of scantily clad women and flashy displays.

    That is the most preposterous thing I have ever heard. Those babes are the only real hotties that gamers will see in real life!!!

    Well good on them.

    There's nothing worse than going to a convention about cars, or electronics etc only to be smothered with mounds of silicone and annoying remixes of pac-man music.

    It gives me something to think about, new motherboards, and hotter booth girls!

    This is probably more of just a cost-saving measure than any real concern over their image, seeing as how they're now trying to attract a more business-like clientèle (whose positions of power mean that they're not any strangers of, and thus not affected as much by, business-class debauchery).

    It's just plain un-American! We need someone like Ron Burgandy to cover this... this horrible, horrible news. He's a man that could help our nation understand the importance of booth babes... and scotch!:D

    The things that they described that they've just taken away are probably half the reason people go, I mean it really adds to the overall atmosphere, without that it's gonna suck.

    E3 was fun cuz of it's chaotic atmosphere... why did they do away with it!

    That's like saying "Ok everyone, no shouting, no yelling, no pushing, and no fighting" at the Warped tour.

    I agree. I go to these things to see the cars or new products. I couldn't give a shit less about booth babes or the techno blaring in the background.

    I'm glad they got rid of the babes and techno, this isn't supposed to be Hot Import Nights, dammit.
