Bring out the Wookie!

Well, E3 2007 last week was a really interesting thing to observe, since I happened to log into’s live web feed and viewed the live broadcasts of the press conferences. I found, unfortunately, that I kept getting drawn into the live chat directly beneath the video where participants from around the world would very frequently enter statements like “THIS SUCKS” – and I found myself agreeing, on one occasion, that in fact, Sony’s information was lack luster and the people giving the presentations were fairly lifeless. Then, for measure, Sony brought out a “Star Wars” branded PSP device and Chewbacca came out on stage. Yes. A Wookie. When all else fails, bring out a Wookie.
