History

On January 5 2007, IDG World Expo, announced the first annual "E for All Expo", the only video game event to receive the endorsement of the Entertainment Software Association (ESA), the trade organization that organized the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3).Fact|date=October 2007 E for All was launched in response to ESA's reorganization of the E3 event to the E3 Business and Media Summit, where only invitees from the press and in the industry can attend. The expo offers an opportunity for the general public to see and try new products.

On September 16th 2007, Games Media Properties, announced that they will no longer produce the World Series of Video Games.
