E3 Delayed After Announcement for E4: “Innovating a Better, Faster, Smarter” Gaming Convention
In partnership with the Entertainment Software Association, Nintendo is proud to announce that the 2021 edition of hit annual expo E3 has been delayed indefinitely to make way for a new kind of gaming experience. Jampacked with faster speeds and better performance than ever before, the ESA is unveiling the next iteration of their convention series: Electronic Entertainment Expo: Extra, or E4. The successor of the widely popular convention will feature presentations from professionals across the industry, including Nintendo’s very own development studios. The past year has put immense strain on all of us, including the privileged CEOs and CMOs with little connection to the overworked programmers and developers in our studios. But we at Nintendo hope to unveil the new technologies that will bring the full E3 experience to all attendees from the comfort of their own homes.
“We knew we had to come out with something more powerful that could serve our customers the immersive expo experience they deserve,” says Mike Rosoft, president and CEO of the ESA. “Here at ESA, we aim to exceed all expectations. We are always striving to do more — and we owe you, especially in the wake of the unfortunate cancellation of E3 2020. We know you couldn’t wait to be immersed in a sweaty convention room full of nerds, so we are bringing the experience to you, in the comfort of your own home.”
The new convention experience is designed to engage all of the senses and the human drive for prestige and performance. “Gaming has become a central — if not the central — part of our lives, and so have the events that cultivate our passion and drive to continue to excel in everything we do from our sofas,” said Rosoft. “E4 will captivate the imagination and creative spark that defines a good gaming experience for the next generation. This innovative convention integrates the sleekest, shortest, longest wait lines on the market with optimised cutting-edge 4K high-fidelity graphics to deliver an ultra-realistic experience of a jam-packed convention hall floor you can never forget. Through a DualSense wireless controller and virtual-augmented- superimposed-reality technology, tickets will feel and respond to your input more effectively than ever before — and you will misplace them even faster. It also has more teraflops than any other expo on the market. I don’t think anyone really knows what that means but it sounds cool.”
Video games journalist Janet Simon Gillbert, reporting for Polyhderon, is already getting hardcore and casual gamers alike hyped for the new technology E4 is debuting. “Our time has come! With your VR goggles, you can stare holes through Todd Howard as he announces another release of Skyrim, and he won’t even know!”
However you want to engage with the community, we are here to empower you to make the choices you have earned and buy our products out of brand loyalty to childhood nostalgia. Get less for your money at E4: the better, faster, smarter convention, which will only be one-upped next year by next generation technology just as functionally similar.
