I think the days of the video game reporters giving impressions are coming to an end and we'll be getting official company presentations via video clips.
I don't know, that sorta makes me uncomfortable. Watching an official company video of a game is not analogous to actually playing it or having involved Q&A's with active probing/criticism there and offering an objective, outside analysis out of it. There are many playable demo builds at these shows, besides all the announcements and hands-off presentations. I think there needs to be people actively there, witnessing things first-hand to keep that hype machine in check because let's face it, most developers tend to not speak badly of their own products.
