Rumor: EA out of E for All

Filed under:

FiringSquad is reporting that Electronic Arts may have pulled out of the inaugural E for All Expo. If true, this does not bode well for the fledgling expo intended to be a consumer replacement for E3. Sony and Microsoft have already said they will not attend the event. Nintendo is currently the only major confirmation and the industry PR rumor-mill has it that involved something other than Nintendo's enthusiastic wish to attend.

FiringSquad noticed that the EA exhibitor announcement has been removed from the E for All Expo webiste, also the revolving list of company logos on the site no longer features EA. Currently the list of those not attending the event is a who's who of the industry beyond the big three, including Activision, Capcom, NCSoft, Sega, Midway and others. Looks like E for All may need to be renamed Nintendo-Con '08.
