E3 2000 Report

by Jason Clark on May 19, 2000 3:24 PM EST
Another year, another E3. For those of you who are unfamiliar with E3, it stands for Electronic Entertainment Expo. Every year, the computer entertainment industry gathers for a ho-down to show their wares. For AnandTech, the interest lies in the hardware side of the industry. But with sounds of "Zug Zug" emitting from the Blizzard booth, who can resist. Warcraft 3 and Diablo II are going to be worth the wait, that's for sure.

While E3 is a showcase of the latest and greatest, to some it would be a bit of a let-down. These days, the theme of shows like this is to hype what's coming out, but they constantly miss the mark on the delivery date. Personally, I like the approach that 3Drealms took with Duke Nukem Forever - it'll be ready when it's ready, and no, you can't see it, and we don't want to talk about it. This leaves the gamer in for a surprise, something that is uncommon in this industry.

New information was particularly hard to come by this year as most companies have released their product lines; and the ones coming soon, we can't talk about. But, this is good, since hype has killed some products.
