Hopped out of the shower today just in time to catch E3 Travel returning my call. I scored a press room at the Holiday Inn Downtown, where I stayed in 1999, five blocks from the show. Haven't made my flight plans yet, but I did already receive email confirmation that I've been approved for a press badge.
I noticed that none of the IGN.com websites have updated their release date pages in months, leaving us uninformed regarding what games are due in this new millennium. But Electronics Boutique's online store, EBworld.com, also has an online release calendar, though it often conflicts with GAMESTOP.
