E3 was often seen as a tentpole event in gaming where developers would announce plans for major games and consoles. Although the expo was designed to be an industry trade show, a limited number of passes were made available to the public to attend. The Expo was highly covered and broadcasted through major gaming news publishers such as IGN, GameSpot, GamesRadar, and other outlets.

Throughout the final years some publishers such as Electronic Arts (EA) had begun to skip the event in favor of their own event to announce upcoming projects. Although the expo had varied in popularity especially in the later years, it was always an event that gamers looked forward to and anticipated.
