Microsoft Joins E for All Expo
Microsoft, along with Sony, both decided to skip out on E for All last year as exhibitors, perhaps taking a wait-and-see approach. This left only Nintendo to hype up its first-party wares at the first E for All.
But event organizer IDG Worldwide has scored a big win in signing up Microsoft for this year.
In a statement, IDG World Expo CEO Mary Dolaher said, "We are thrilled that Microsoft Corporation has decided to exhibit at this year’s E for All.
"The addition of Microsoft’s leading line of products at the event will be a huge benefit for attendees, from hardcore gamers to families, and everyone in between."
E for All 2008 is taking place at the Los Angeles Convention Center, October 3-5.
Last year saw exhibitors including Nintendo, EA, THQ, Konami and Namco Bandai, which vied for the attention of 18,000 attendees.
