"absolutely terrified of someone, somewhere, trying to sell them something." I
disagree, but it's hard not to see how frustrated people can get when a company
reduces their passionate involvement to a number on an accounting sheet. To the
dismay of gamers everywhere, the annual Electronic Entertainment Expo - also
known as E3 - has done just this.
year's E3 has come and gone, but I can still barely keep up with all
the news that has come out since Monday: new games, new consoles and --
since this is the video game industry, after all -- tons of new

E3 is now! Any reputable gamer knows that the biggest gaming news of the year comes out at the Electronic Entertainment Expo
(E3) in Los Angeles, the largest console and PC gaming convention in
the country. Today, Microsoft is slated to reveal first details on Halo 4
-- yes, a new Halo! The mega-sequel's existence was actually just leaked,
hours before Microsoft's planned announcement at its press conference.
