I'm all for it to be honest. Selling anything via some 'fit woman' in a dumb constume is always pretty embarassing.

Meh, for anyone who has worked an E3 it's probably a good thing.

Marketing wise you need the pretty women to get the nerdy guys to your booth because the people next door have them. But I tell ya, it's the most depressing thing in the world to have someone come to your booth and instead of asking you about your amazing awesome super-duper gameing product, they ask you to take their picture with the pretty lady's chest and then after kindly saying thank you swiftly move to the next set of over exposed breasts...errr...amazing awesome super-duper gaming product.

that and the fact that it was often hard to sell anything to anyone while both of you are being distracted by the barely dressed lady next to you

That being said...E3 will have one less reason for me to follow it this year

I think its a good thing overall and the title at the top of the Legendary link is probably a good demonstration of why, even if that wasn't quite how it was meant

Probably. Next thing ya know, the posters and images of game models like Lara and other characters will be banned unless "dressed for success" or some crap like that.

A better solution would be to ban cameras with a $5k fine, plus confiscation, and allow partial nudity.

how the hell will they enforce a 5000$ fine, and is it only to the companys girls? (and girls in general) what if they had blokes wearing skimpy outfits lol!?, would probably sicken most of the people (including me) which is funny, but when all the nerd people see a hot girl there like OMG, get a photo and get a good feeling and then when they remember it there like OMG PS3 was mad it made me feel good

I think they are being too lenient tbh. If it were me I would just ban clothes on booth babes altogether.
