Wait if they set up a FanFest in another, bigger location in LA why would the people who were going to fly out be screwed? I'm just saying they should choose a new venue that will allow anyone to go.
I'd be ok if I couldn't go to the briefing and couldn't get swag. I understand that's it's pretty short notice, but I feel like they should be able to set something up in two months' time. Just a little something for the fans that are feeling raw from this.
Easier said than done. Most large venues in LA have been booked for months in advance for E3 week. If they could find a place large enough to host the event, it would either be really expensive or far away from the convention center/Downtown.
