Having a booth at E3 costs a company a good amount of money and if you’re a developer or publisher in tough times, sparing the expense is a smart move. That doesn’t mean that you can’t have a presence at the show and that’s what THQ went into detail about to the folks at GamesIndustry.biz:
“We’re not producing a booth, but we will be participating in E3. We will be showing games to the E3 judges at their event coming up, and we’ll be hosting a press and business center at the show for meetings (as well as participating with first party activities).
Best of luck to THQ in getting their content out there. E3 is rapidly approaching!
