Now that the dust has settled on E3 for another year, I’m still trying to get thru all of the content. I wanted to look back and reflect..
…on how damn difficult it is to keep up to date on everything that happened! E3 finished a few days ago(when this was written) and I still have over a hundred feeds to read just on the event itself. Its ridiculous.
Just to stress the ridiculousness here is a run down of everything that I had prepared for E3 Basically everybody wants news, screenshots and a comprehensive list of video. Pretty simple right?
I am a keen IGN subscriber, so I get all of my news and screens from there. Overall they do a pretty comprehensive job. Although their video is a bit lacking, so GameTrailers cover me here. IGN sometimes misses some of the smaller, more interesting announcements, so I subscribe to another gaming feed which fills in all the gaps.
Here’s the run down of articles, this includes pre-E3:
IGN Playstation 2Â – 70 articles
IGN Playstation 3- 275 articles
IGN Playstation Portable – 80 articles
IGN DS – 125 articles
IGN Wii – 186 articles
Other Feed – 60 articles
GameTrailers – 1126 videos and counting
Total =796 feeds and 1126 trailers
Pretty damn insane if you ask me. Of course I don’t read all of these I get the best ones, so probably over 500 feeds.
