    Dose the name have any sort of connection to GamePro magazine? If not wouldn’t there be some sort of copy right problem?

    Yes ... exactly one month before they all have to ship. :peoples: 

    The upside of this is that devs won't have to waste time kludging together tech demos just for a conference. The downside is ... actually, with the news/PR cycle the way it is now, I don't see a downside. "Wah, I can't play a demo that has little to do with the final product" doesn't strike me as a downside.

    GamePro is owned by IDG, so no issue there.

    Somehow I'm not surprised by this. The gaming media (and the mainstream media) ate up E3 each year.

    GamePro is a fucking lame name. Let's move gaming backward some more!

    GamePro has been lame since right after the SNES days. At least we have a show.

    Every time I think of gamepro, all I can think of is their review of Doom that featured "Protip: Shoot it until it dies".

    gah.

    Protip: Basing a ratings system around how badly a face is being electrocuted is silly.

    Ok so E3 was scaled back so that the game companies could try and save money. So why would they now expect them to go to 2 different events?

    I bought an issue recently and I'm shocked to find out they finally learned how to take half-decent photos. In the old days, all their photos were blurry and had horrible color distortions.
