E3 – In And Around The Convention Center

If you’re a fan of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3, that photo above is just for you. For everyone else, we thought it would be cool to throw together a little gallery of the various walkways and spaces that are around the Los Angeles Convention Center. Don’t worry, we’ve kept it brief but you can expect to see much more as the week continues.

We went today and picked up the various barcodes, pass cards and wristbands that will get us into all the good stuff tomorrow and for the rest of the week. During the course of that endeavour (and before we succumbed to the lures of the ESPN Zone bar), we grabbed a few little snaps of the adverts around the place and the huge, nondescript wooden crates that are full of stand equipment, televisions and other assorted stuff.

We didn’t see any PlayStation 4 consoles yet, but we’ve been told that they’re being closely guarded so that only a handful of people in the world have seen the final design. It’s all quite covert and more than a little bit exciting.



  1. Cheers for the pics guys and as always look forward to what you guys have for us over the next 4 days or so! have a blast

  2. It’s grey and cold in London. Just thought you should know.

        EA 9pm
        Ubisoft 11pm

        I think that’s accurate, I’m not 100% certain about it but it should be pretty close.

      • I was clearly wrong, thanks for the correct times and the link to watch all the streams.

    • Aye, bloody grim, and whilst it was sunny last week I stupidly shelled out for me and my girlfriend to go up the Shard this morning assuming it would be beautiful. Bloody weather, grrr.

      Dying Light banner! Hopefully we get to hear much more about it. :-)

  6. Amazing the amount of years since I’ve played THPS3 yet that picture takes me back to the time and place I was playing it and reminds me of the moves I used to pull off there.

  7. I’m loving the box thread on Neogaf. Absolutely hilarious.

    Nice pics guys.

  8. Lovely. TSA: Adding the human touch to your conference coverage :)
