    Watching E3 is so boring, you're better off waiting for the news to be transcribed onto other sites or just getting the video offline later. Obsessing over seeing it live is stupid. Seriously, people have better things to do than watch through 72 hours of live TV to see all of maybe 4-5 conferences.

    I usually just watch it on streaming sites. Besides G4 was just dropped by Direct TV. I'm sure Dish network and others aren't far behind.

    Eat a dick for killing TechTV, G4.

    If I ever wanted to watch E3, I'd just go to a site like IGN or something, no need to have the TV on for this.

    The FUCK? Why the hell would E3 do that when the important part is announcing products and generating hype!?
    You don't even get G4 outside the USA.
    TV Exclusivity doesn't mean places like Gamespot won't be streaming online, right?

    What the hell are you talking about?
    XPlay is an awesome show.

    Even though I will admit, G4 has been showing shows that shouldn't even be on G4, I mean, The Office? REALLY?!?

    I'm confused. Does this mean the press conferences won't be streaming online like previous years, or does this just cover the 72 hours of the show floor?

    i remember a time when TechTV and The Screen Savers made my day, but then g4tv came along and all that went away, sure xplay was still good for a while but it slowly turned to shit and it doesn't mater if you have 1 good show and the rest is a flaming pile of cow dung.
    fuck you SpikeTV junior, with your cops, cheaters, and 99.9% programming that is in no way tv for gamers, fuck you to hell with a bag of dicks!

    it will still stream online, this just means that only G4 has live coverage of it on TV

    There's always a dramatic buildup at E3, plus you get to be the very first of the general public to hear the official announcements. Sifting through a dozen odd E3 articles the next day doesn't feel the same at all.

    No kidding...when I heard the DK music playing when DKCR was announced, I got incredibly giddy and a smile just spread across my previously lifeless face.

    What the hell are you guys talking about Cops-like shows on G4?
    All I got ROTR, XPlay, AOTS, EP Daily, and shows from Adult Swim.

    G4 jus give up already, this is getting sad. Nothing has ever been good on G4 since they stopped showing Code Moneys.
