The Electronics Entertainment Expo is next week and kicking it off is a round of press conferences where the biggest publishers will try and dazzle you with game announcements and spectacle in an attempt to win your dollars.
Of course, these presentations rarely go off without a hitch. Everything from technical failures such as Nintendo's Skyward Sword demo from 2011 or EA's Battlefield 4 false start last year to horrible hosts such as "Mr. Caffeine" from Ubisoft's 2011 presser and Jamie Kennedy who MC'd Activision's show in 2007.
While it's doubtful anything will ever top the cringe-inducing embarrassment that was Konami's E3 2010 press conference, major publishers will continue to find new and interesting ways to humiliate themselves in front of a large audience at what is arguably the most important and highest profile gaming event of the year.
So, who do you think will have the biggest, most embarrassing gaffe during its E3 presentation next week? Vote in the poll and let us know! EZK and I will reveal the poll results on next week's podcast.
