I really hope they aren't doing this because video games are criticized for being to sexy and violent, as the article implies. But they probably are. I wonder how many companies will decide that having a booth babe is worth the $5000 penalty. Think about all the attention you'd get if you were the only booth that was breaking the rule.

I never paid much attention to them anyway. It's not like they do anything.

If you're pissed about this though, slap on a speedo when you visit this year. Tell them you're peddling meat.

It's hilarious watching the US slide back into the 15th century, or at least into something that would make Queen Victoria proud. On the other hand, it seems like kind of a depressing job so maybe it's just as well...but where else are pole dancers gonna get money on the side now??

Well, it's just that especially trashy "booth babes" are banned. Those women are gross anyway.

Heh heh. You beat me to the "Puritanical E3" comment. I'm guessing there were some bad ones at E3, but from what little I had always seen, it looked like the BOOTH BABEZ weren't anything to get upset over...

I'm gonna go on a limb and say this is probably a good thing. Given the state of things, maybe the industry should play things down a bit.

Wasn't there an article, or a post, or something like that some time back, stating that the folks hired to do booth babe work were actually pretty intelligent and socially respectable? Just that they decided to put their looks to use and take these roles. (Very few had interest in games though.)

[It was the same for cheerleaders in high school; they often had reputations for being not all too bright -- but from my experience, quite the opposite was true. (Of course, then you'd have a few that'd fit the mold on whom everyone would focus.)]

Either way though -- I'm actually kinda glad for this move to restrict how scantily-clad a booth rep can be. If there isn't a strong or all-that-positive perception of women in gaming right now (Case 5 might be most applicable here), maybe a move like this might be a small step to help improve it.

I'm sorry. I didn't mean to spread hate. Trashy Third-Rate Rent-A-Whores can still be intelligent. Maybe they're intelligent for taking advantage of their looks...sure. But they're still wearing trashy costumes and renting themselves out.

And the average gamer is neither lower nor higher than me, just not of interest. Porno producers, who may be richer and wiser than me also don't matter to me. The same applies to Turkish resturant owners, people who read Archie comics, gangster rappers, those guys in Mexico that paint a donkey like a zebra and charge you for photos and the editors of the New York Times.

At this point, a Silent Hill creature lept forth from a nearby closet, and clumsily persued Pollyanna down a darkened hallway; all the while profainly demanding in a shrieking voice that Pollyanna return the stolen "Cloudsong" immediately.

I guess it depends on the "donkey artist". It's not so much that they do a shoddy job, as there's a sort of...weakness in the medium as a whole. That is to say, you can tell that the poor donkey is painted, and their stripes get a little "melty" in the heat.

It seems like a pretty iffy operation, but I guess if you're going to go so far as to paint a donkey like a zebra and expect people to pay good money to have their picture taken with it, then you might as well go all the way.

What about shadow!? The cool and hip version of sonic who smokes cigarettes. The shadow that has spontaneous explosions following him everywhere... Imagine a Booth Babe for Halo, grinding on master chief... you think his armor would go cLINKACLINK?** Even better a booth babe deformed enough to be dressed as a covenant alien... Shucks, i did an image search on google for covenant alien babe, and it turned up nothing.

They have both already, unless you think Conan is a really muscular, topless chick.

What they really need to do is ban green badges. Thin out the herd to give people who are actually trying to get somewhere the ability to do so without wading through a sea of meandering humanity.
