Big 3 lead E3 2011 exhibitor list

Microsoft, Nintendo, and Sony lead list of 92 companies showing their wares in LA from June 7-9; registration now open.

by

The Entertainment Software Association, organizers of the Electronic Entertainment Expo, has released the initial list of exhibitor's for this year's event. Some 92 companies large and small will be showing their wares at the event, ranging from the "Big 3"-- Microsoft, Nintendo, and Sony--to smaller companies such as developer Behaviour (formerly A2M) and Telltale Games. The list also includes media outlets covering and exhibiting at the event, such as GameSpot. The number of exhibitors is not final and may increase as the event nears.

Sony is one of 92 companies that will be exhibiting at E3 2011.

The release of the list coincides with the opening of online registration for E3 2011. Qualifying members of the game industry can sign up for admittance, as can members of the media. Unlike in years past, media badges will not be mailed out, but rather picked up at the Los Angeles Convention Center. According to Gamasutra, the move was done in part to crack down on the scalping and forging of badges.

The exact attendance number of E3 2011 won't be known until the expo runs from June 7-9. However, the event has grown since switching back to a large-event format in 2009, when 41,000 developers, analysts, investors, journalists, and retailers turned out at the LACC. Last year, that number increased to 45,600 attendees from some 90 countries.

@SEGAftw you think Sega is going to lose money??? they where almost dead, until they become a 3rd party company making games for every console. Sonic on Nintendo, Japanese RPGs for Sony, and something there for Microsoft, but Sega will Die with becoming Self Independent Company. Don't get me wrong. i still own my Sega GameGear and Dreamcast.

why so surprised with no Rockstar? They didn't turned up last year also :) and Valve, I can't remember them on E3. They may feature a game or two within one of the Big 3 :) and Crytek presents their games through EA :) but a nice list again :)

All Gamespot is doing with this article is letting all of us know which companies they found out will be at e3. This isn't the final list just who they know is coming at this moment.

i love how they completely ignored AMD.. their on the verge of fortune 500 and offering a cheap 3d experience (let alone will be supplying graphics power to the next xbox) and they get ignored.. how silyl fo you gamespot

I doubt it, but we might hear the first whispers of the next generation of consoles this E3. A few vague details usually come out a few years before the actual launch.

Hmmm, I might be able to attend this event somehow if my orders have me in California around June! I've always wanted to see E3 and now its back to the "grand-big-amazing" format so I think it would be worth it for sure.

@BAD-C0MPANY, I wish but I highly doubt it. They still have to finish off LA Noire, Max Payne 3, and Agent. and knowing how R* takes all the time in the world to finish off their games I'm not too sure if they'll make an announcement anytime soon as much as I wish they do

Im hoping this E3 sony focuses on improving there online experience with psn, cuz it seems to me, unlike microsoft they have already got alot of exclusives coming this year, surely there might be something new, but im just hoping sony improves on there weak spot, and thats PSN :)
