E3 in 2007...the real story!

I have attended E3 in the past and found it to be a mixed bag for my own interests, but its intended purpose seemed to be a losing proposition (product developers and publishers pushing products to retailers and distributors, getting them excited and interested in buying into what was coming down the pipe, etc.). Anyway, here's what this article has to say about the latest incarnation:

"Spot On: E3 absentees sound off
Many publishers and developers are steering clear of next week's trade show--they explain to GameSpot what's keeping them away.";title;0

"After months of uncertainty, next week the gaming industry will finally experience the new E3 Media & Business Summit. The event is the dramatically overhauled successor to the Electronic Entertainment Expo, which had been the central event of the North American game industry for the previous 12 years."
