After years of searching I was ready to give up. I thought it had disappeared to the vastness of the internet. But finally after all this time of I have found a working source for the Electric Showdown. Here it is. For those in the know I suggest you go watch it before it gets taken down or just disappears. Or if no for other reason, Del Taco and sweet Midnight Brown beats.
For those not in the know, let me take you back to the distant future of E3 2005. Star Wars: Episode III has just hit the cinemas, J Allard still belives in the Tribe, and Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo are ready to announce the next generation of video game consoles to the world. Electric Showdown documents the E3 experience of GameSpot at the time. And yes that means that Jeff, Ryan, Alex, Brad, Rorie and a lot of old-school GameSpot cats hit the show floor with notepads at hand. Remember them write-ups!
It was really interesting to watch this again after so many years and I think that the documentary really gives context to how much (or how little) the industry's changed in the last eight years.
Drop a Bomb on it!
PS: The documentary was initially sold on DVD through GameSpot. It's not sold anywhere anymore so I'm hoping that a hammer's not going to fall down on me for spreading this. No intent to violate copyright on my part and I would be happy to pay for a copy of this.
