Praise The Gods! Booth Babes Live On!

A number of reports have been going around claiming that our beloved ‘Booth Babes’ at e3 are going to be Banned from here on but fear not it all now seems like it was just mistake. What was originally thought of as a new rule has now been confirmed to have been a rule that is not new and has been there for a fair few year’s now. The rule from the e3 handbook is as follows

Material, including live models, conduct that is sexually explicit and/or sexually provocative, including but not limited to nudity, partial nudity and bathing suit bottoms, are prohibited on the Show floor, all common areas, and at any access points to the Show. ESA, in its sole discretion, will determine whether material is acceptable.

In fear of booth babe loss gaming website GameCloud got in touch with the e3 management and they received an official response, which confirms that the rule is not in fact new, just the enforcement policy has been updated to allow management to enforce current rule’s much better, full statement below

The E3Expo dress code policy is not new for 2006. In fact, it is the same as it has been for the past several years, and the vast majority of other major tradeshows have the same or similar policies. What’s new in 2006 is an update of the enforcement policies, which simply allow show management to better enforce the long-standing dress code. E3Expo is first and foremost a business show, and policies such as this one help create an environment not only ‘where business gets fun,’ but where business gets done.

That about wraps that one up then, all those that visit E3 this year will still have many scantily dressed women to look at and take cringe worthy pictures with. Now lets us all give a nice forced fake smile to show how happy we are!
