Electronic Entertainment Expo
The Electronic Entertainment Expo (also called E3 or sometimes E³) is a annual gaming industry fair. It is the primary gaming convention worldwide, featuring presentations of many new titles each year. In recent years it has turned into a non-public press event, meaning that the public audience can not buy tickets - unlike most other conventions like San Diego Comic Con, Tokyo Games Show, or GamesCom. Instead there is simultaneous extensive internet and other media coverage.
