This is the second in my continuing series of Morning Hangover's that look backward at the E3 that just happened last week. Our topic today: What was missing from E3 2010? Obviously we spent the week bringing you a metric crap-ton of info and looks at what was at the Electronic Entertainment Expo -- some of which is still trickling into our site -- so we didn't focus on what we didn't see.
Off the top of my head, here are a couple glaring absences:
- Rockstar Games: The makers of the most talked about game right now (Red Dead Redemption) had no official presence at the show as far as I know -- not that they really need it or anything, but I wouldn't have minded a GTA 5 announcement...
- Kinect Price-Point: We saw a bunch of Kinect games, learned the release date, and otherwise checked the thing out, but there was no mention of a price... Microsoft's site is listing it for $150, so it makes sense that they wanted to sort of slide that information out when no one is looking as opposed to trumpeting it.
- Kentia Hall: The hall itself is still there, but it's empty of the third-rate peripherals and weird, hopeless game companies that used to fill it up. I miss Kentia Hall!
What else was absent from the show?
