Are E3 events becoming irrelevant?

There are many people who are aware of the fact that E3 2023 is only a few months away from now. E3 2023 will take place in this upcoming June but as it currently stands it seems like there is not much to look forward to. We all know for a fact that Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo otherwise known as the Big Three will not be a this year’s E3 event. The fact that Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo are skipping E3 2023 this year is huge and shows everyone how much interest people have lost in the annual gaming conference within the past several years. In 2022, the E3 event ended up being cancelled altogether due to fears surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic which is something that also happened back in 2020. The last E3 event that we got to see took place back in 2021 via broadcast and this year is going to mark the first public gathering surrounding the event since 2019. At this point many believe that annual E3 gaming conferences have become outdated especially since corporations like Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo would rather host and stream direct presentations from their own respective online platforms. In relation to E3 2023 it has been confirmed that Ubisoft supposed to be making some type of appearance but aside from that we have no idea what other gaming companies are going to be at type event and what to expect. We also know that E3 2023 is going to be organized by Reedpop and the Entertainment Software Associate and will take place at the Los Angles Convention Center between June 13th and June 16th. The rumor fee for admission into E3 2023 is around $250 and there are many people would probably be better off putting that money towards a Nintendo Switch versus attending an event that is shaping up to be lackluster right now. To say that E3 has lost its appeal within the past several years would be an understatement at this point but then again hosts will have an opportunity to prove the masses wrong in June 2023.
