Morning Hangover: What Was Missing From E3?

E3 2010 Live Homepage Hero

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?
