Picking on the E3 seems to have become the latest fashion in the gaming industry. Now it was Will Wright's turn to kick the old show in the groins.

"It almost feels like a zombie at this point; it's the walking dead. It's such an abrupt end to what was E3, which had been this huge escalating arms race," Wright said.
"I understand why they really pulled the plug on the big E3. Looking at the amount of money a company like EA would spend on it, it was ridiculous amounts of money just to be present and competitive with everyone else, so I think they were looking for a way to sign the arms treaty and de-escalate the whole thing," he added.
Ok, so almost everyone agrees that E3 is dead and should be buried, in its present form at least. The question is, what comes next after the burial?
