Electronic Arts bigwig John Riccitello has stated his belief that this year’s E3 convention in Los Angeles will prove to be the “biggest and best” in the trade show’s 15 year history.
“This summer, the ESA will host the biggest and best E3 ever,” he stated. “All the best games and all the best developers will be together in LA to unveil new titles and celebrate the creativity and new technology that makes gaming so much fun.”
Wedbush Morgan’s Michael Pachter reckons Riccitello is bang on the money, commenting: “I expect the 2010 E3 to be one of the most exciting in year,” said Pachter, adding, “with the type of impactful breaking news we have learned to expect from the show.
“This year’s E3 will be the launching pad for hardware and software innovations that could change the industry for years.”
Finally, ESA boss Michael Gallagher also chimed in on the matter, stating, “The world is coming to the E3 Expo this June.”
“With groundbreaking announcements expected from computer and video game publishers and developers, this year’s E3 Expo is going to be the main event for the entertainment industry in 2010.”
Just in case you aren’t up to speed, Sony’s E3 press conference is scheduled for June 15.

Hope its not just all the usual "this year trumps all others" talk. Hope they bring something to the table but honestly all I really need to see is marvel vs capcom 3.

@1 yea i bet they will show the first infamous 2 trailer.

@2 They had live streams of most the conferences in HD, and several different sites had live play-by-play for the whole convention, what more do you want?
I believe this year will deliver

It will be the biggest e3 for ps3 gamers :)

Unless They Unveil Infamous 2 Resistance 3 Uncharted 3 a New God of War for the Ps3... i really don't see how it can be that big... i mean the Only Games i'm looking after right now are Red DEad , Castlevania , Gran Turismo , and that's pretty much it... If any of those games are not announced i'm quitting gaming after Gran Turismo... now i know it's posible that game will only get release when Ps4 comes out but still...

Honestly this year, I'm looking forward to Square Enix's presentations.

@8 Go away troll!!!
@ topic - I want Resistance 3, Killzone 3 and any other good new IP or a good sequel. Maybe some new accesories too.
- 10:43am EDT - May 7th, 2010
I want to see Killzone 3, Resistance 3, Infamous 2, and then it would be nice to be surprised a few times. Last year was great, but this year has something big, I can feel it. Sony always has something up thier sleeve.

I'm hoping Bungie will have something to say about their plans. something bigger and better than the halo franchise please, and make it exclusive to PS3 :D

Can't wait to get some info/gameplay on SOCOM 4, COD Black-Ops, MOH, Alpha Protocol and Spec-Ops The Line (this game looks epic). And I can't wait to see Olivia Munn too.

"biggest and best ever" is only used to hype things up

I hope Sony don't get up there and still talk about how well PS2 sold, and still selling today.

i dont see a resistance 3 coming out, i mean what is the point nathan is dead.
