Video game industry professionals and the media had a lot of questions heading into this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo in
Would Sony debut a new version of its PlayStation Portable? Would Nintendo have a big Mario game for its Wii console soon? Would Microsoft and Sony come out with motion-sensing controllers to respond to Nintendo’s popular Wii remote? Well, yes, yes and yes.
But a big question – mostly among the male-centric gaming press – was: Would the new-and-improved, flashback E3 mark a return of scantily clad booth babes. The answer to that is a resounding yes.
E3 got rid of the booth babes and most of the fun at the conference a couple of years ago in favor of a staid “business summit” format. But this year, video game publishers hired busloads of beautiful young women to dress up as warrior princesses, sexy nurses and the like.
Ever the intrepid reporter, I even got photographic evidence (see above). But I must note that none of these women are as attractive and sexy as my wife. She reads this blog occasionally. Hi, honey.
The three-day E3 conference runs through Thursday.
