CES Gets Game?

Consumer Electronics Association Press Release (thanks FiringSquad) announces that the folks behind the annual Consumer Electronics Show have formed a Gaming Advisory Board "to solicit gaming industry feedback and explore the viability of a West Coast event in late spring 2007 focused on the gaming and entertainment marketplace." This is an admitted attempt to fill the void left by the downsizing of E3, but the feedback I would offer if asked would be to eschew the west coast part of the plan and play to one of the great strengths of the CES and hold their gaming event in Vegas.
