    Overview

    After a subdued event during the previous two years, the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) returned to its former large scale in 2009. This year's event had over 200 exhibitors present and around 40,000 attendees. Although the show was still not open to the public, it was more open then the previous two years, but less so then its peak attendance of over 60,000 in 2006.

    Games of the Show

    The games listed below not only include those playable on the show floor, but any game referenced at the show. This would include video presentations, announcements, advertisements, or any other official reference to the game from its developer, publisher, or platform. They are listed mainly according to the publisher of the game, with a few exceptions where the publisher did not attend the show. An example of this would be a hardware company such as Nintendo or nVidia showing a game not developed or published by them. In several situtations, games either changed their title or even their publisher before they were released. For historical accuracy in chronicling E3, such games will be listed with their original names and publishers, and linked to the corresponding page of the final game.
