Oh God.

They can't do that.

What are they, crazy?

I'm upset, I'm very upset. What advantages could possibly come from splitting such a massive event up like this? It's a bit of a lousy move, in my opinion. It's going to cost them, big time.

I've heard mixed views on this. But I think that the companies put loads of money into making it look good for 5 minutes at E3, and by removing this then they can put those resources into the game, rather than the impression.

True. It would've been pretty cool to have seen it at least once. But I'll live.
