Which is your "favorite" lame moment of E3 '07 so far?
Mine would have to be Jack asking Kaz..."is that Riiiidge Racer?"

Notables:
-Chewbacca
-Playing Madden with Reggie Bush..."Brotha!"
-The whole WiiFit bit with Reggie.
-Moore unveils the Halo 3 360.

Peter Moore saying GTA IV is running Real-Time on 360
Peter Moore pausing the game twice while playing Rock Band
Peter Moore introducing another game from Japanese publisher Resident Evil 5 (thought it was MGS 4 so that moment sucked)

The Whole Microsoft Conference was LAME.

Chewbaka was also stupid and boring on the Sony Conference.

Is there some kind of inside joke that I don't get with this?

If you saw it you would know why it's lame.

Jack tried to emulate the "Ridge Racer" sound bit from the games, but he was completely monotone and had fake enthusiasm. It was extremely rehearsed...

The Star Wars part wouldn't have been so lame if it wasn't dragged out so long. It also didn't help with Jack's lame joke at the end..
"Now I can add hugging a Wookie to the list."

Oh man, Peter Moore introducing the Halo-edition 360 FTW!! People were actually laughing, then some fool, who embarassed by the pin-drop quietness, belted out a "woooo", and Peter enthusiastically says, "THANK YOU!"

That's going in my favorite videos list!!

Were you seriously expecting a KZ2 demo or was that sarcasm?

The ENTIRE NINTENDO CONFERENCE... It was indicative that they have abandoned gamers...

G4 TV broadcast of the MS conference.

Moore trying to sing a little during Rock Band.

Moore going over stats.

The posing marketing VP who was just as dumb if not dumber than the airhead football player who was tackled one to many times.

The Sony execs playing 3D Barbie. "You wanna watch my grill, lol j/king."

I think he meant of what happened, what acts were lame. Not trailers, demos and other disappointments.

Chewy
Reggie Bush and pre recorded gameplay
Wiifit not working
Peter Moore playing rockband
All the Sony guys acting incredibly odd on the Home demo

I never knew Phil Harrison was that tall. That or Jack Tretton and the Killzone dev are incredibly short.

No PSN demos doesn't count as press conference material.
...lol jk I know what you mean.

I don't think Lair needed anymore coverage. Seriously it has enough, plus it comes out soon. They didn't need to waste more time showing stuff we already seen a billion times.

Remember, MGS4 and FF13 will be at TGS. So,, we'll just have to be patient. :)

The worst, out of everything, has to be the G4TV coverage -- all of it. The show is so bad, it is cringe worthy to even think about watching it but it is on cable and too easy to flip by. Every time, that is a regret. There have been so many screw-ups, it is unbelievable. Amateur production is fine but staying amateurish and fumble-bumble after several years is just inexcusable. There have been some real howlers though, like cutting off the Halo 3 trailer during the M$ press conference to go to a erectile dysfunction commercial, with Sessler in the background going "not yet, not yet" and the director saying something like "screw it, we have to go to commercial".

Not exactly the "lame" moments I was talking about, but I get your point.
Overall though, I think G4TV did an OK job at E3. I mean, if anything big was omitted due to commercial, they just replayed it afterwards about 50 times during the broadcast. Not to mention that they practically re-ran the E3 coverage 4 times a day...
Remember, this was really the first time E3 press conferences were broadcast live...plus they had to go to commercials sometime. It's not like they knew when to cut out to a break so they wouldn't have to when something like Halo 3 is shown.
I never watch G4TV unless it's for some coverage for things like E3, TGS, etc. Overall they do a good job.

The worst thing EVER was the rock band demo that MS put on with that fat ugly chick singing. I thought well I guess MS is throwing in the towel since the fat lady sang.
