Did you all see E3 was cancelled this year?

Itís official: E3 2020 has been canceled [Updated] - arstechnica.com

It's been cancelled due to Coronavirus.   Not a huge shock right now. 

I didn't realize so many vendors pulled out of E3 in the past.

Thoughts, comments,  musings?   Post it up!

This is insane. Common flu has an estimated 56,000 deaths a year in the US vs Coronavirus 30 so far. And yet we do not blink an eye when it is flu season. With this fabrication of a crisis, the fear and panic is more dangerous to me than the virus. By the time the warm weather is here it will be gone.

I honestly couldn't care less that E3 is cancelled. I think all gaming companies should just have live streams of their announcements year round, just like Nintendo does. Why waste money on renting out a venue when you could just live stream only? I'll personally never go to E3 so it makes no difference to me.

@Jack  yeah... I hear you.  It is cool to go to some of those shows ... but maybe e3 has lost its place. I don't know though.  There's some appeal to as show like E3.  That used to be all the rage.   I was surprised to hear Nintendo backed out a few years ago. In fact, I missed that EA and others did as well.

@retro junkie lol... nice  ;D
