With many people are still lamenting the demise of E3 there are plenty of organisers willing to step into the Electronic Entertainment Expo’s shoes. Games Digest reports that now the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), which organises one of our very favourite expos – CES – is currently considering the possibility of creating its own large-scale, games industry trade-show.
And unlike ESA, which is now aiming for a smaller-scale and more intimate E3Expo, CEA seems a bit happier when to comes to handling large volumes of visitors. Last year, the International CES attracted some 2,700 companies and over 160,000 visitors. And as it also points out that over 10% of those visitors were specifically there for the gaming news anyway.
Nothing is set in stone yet, but it seems that CEA would be in a great position to pick-up where E3 left off – keep an eye on Games Digest for more news on this and any other gaming news as it emerges.
