Throughout the Presidential race and continuing into his Presidency, President Obama on numerous occasions has said "put the video games away."  As a gamer and a voter, we're asking you to email President Obama to point out some of the ways that video games have empowered and educated you, as well as their power to build teamwork and make people healthier.

Write the President now, and tell him the real facts about our hobby.

We know video games can promote fitness.  We know games can educate, because we've expereinced that first hand.  Video games are also not solely consumption entertainment as we're being challenged to create content for some of our favorite games.  We're a part of the new global choice for entertainment and the community it's spawned.

Tell the President that this community is active, and vocal.  Write him now.

We're asking you to speak out now and put a positive face on our community.  Make sure to let the President know what we experience every day. 

Take a moment and make your voice heard.

ESA Announces 2010 E3 Expo Dates—June 15-17, 2010


The Entertainment Software Association (ESA) today closed the 2009 Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3 Expo) and announced that the 2010 E3 Expo will take place from June 15-17, 2010, at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Over the course of the 2009 E3 Expo, more than 41,000 attendees from 78 countries viewed hundreds of new products and developments from 216 exhibitors.

The 2009 E3 Expo was designed to better meet the needs of exhibitors and attendees by focusing on value, while maintaining the excitement and energy that fuels the $22 billion U.S. marketplace for computer and video game entertainment.

“We are pleased that this year’s E3 Expo was so successful for our members and exhibitors in terms of sales, business development and profile-building,” said Michael D. Gallagher, president and CEO of the ESA, the trade association that represents U.S. computer and video game publishers and owns the E3 Expo. “E3 Expo is truly the world stage and spotlight that the interactive entertainment industry has earned as a leader in entertainment. We are looking forward to building on this great momentum for 2010.”

"The E3 Expo has returned as the premiere annual destination for the global games industry," said Graham Hopper, executive vice president and general manager, Disney Interactive Studios. "The excitement the show generates and the ability for us to showcase our portfolio to a worldwide media, retail and consumer audience is an important business driver."

“The ESA has put on a great show for the game industry," said Electronic Arts CEO John Riccitiello. "E3 2009 reflected the vitality, innovation and global presence of a rapidly growing industry. I'm already looking forward to next year's event."

 “Xbox 360 was pleased to be a part of a rejuvenated E3 this year and to see the interactive entertainment industry really shine and reach new audiences,” said Don Mattrick, senior vice president, Microsoft’s Interactive Entertainment Business. “We look forward to being at E3 next year and continuing to redefine the future of home entertainment.”

“This year’s E3 exceeded expectations and SouthPeak Games was proud to be a part of it,” commented Richard Iggo, vice president for marketing at SouthPeak Interactive Corporation. “For us, E3 is about building our brand, showcasing titles, and making the business connections necessary to deliver high-quality entertainment and we were able to accomplish all of that. This is once again the industry’s launchpad for computer and video game news.”

Dear Faithful,

Would you like to help us come up with the title for an upcoming game?  We're bringing Kenka Bancho 3 for PSP system to North America, a game of street brawling and insult hurling, and we'd like to have your input on what title you think best suits the game!

"How can I give you good input without knowing what the game is about?" you suddenly ask, your head tilting slightly to one side?  Excellent question!  Why don't you click below...
