Companies complaining about the cost of exhibiting. All the fuss over the booth babes. Maybe even problems hiring the venue according to one report I read. Whatever, there will be an "entertainment expo" next year, just a lot smaller in scale.

Plus, E3 has been disappointing for years until this one.

I expect the answer to be a "no", but wondered if anyone else is going to the Games Convention in Leipzig, Germany later this month?
