E3 1999 – My First Year at the Electronic Entertainment Expo in LA, CA

February 4, 2000 0 By phoenixgenesis®


Let’s party like it’s 1999! This was the first year that Jason Iaquilino and I attended E3 Expo in Los Angeles, California. Fortunately, my office Phoenix Genesis / MBS LP was located in West Los Angeles at the time, so we did not have far to travel. I was a fledgling game developer, under the name MBS Light & Magic. I caught the media bug and began to move Phoenix Genesis into covering video game news and reviews in addition to making preparations for the retail end of selling rare and out-of-print video game music and collectibles.

We just got our first business cards printed and we’ve got the beta of our Phoenix Genesis website online. We should be up and running with the retail end in a few months and the site should be goldplated by the third quarter of 2000. Sadly, Jason has moved to Florida recently to pursue his dreams of being a 3D animator, so I will be forming a new media and retail staff to attend this year’s upcoming E3 Expo. Hope to see you there. In the meantime, please support these amazing games and buy Crash Bandicoot from Naughty Dog and Spyro the Dragon from Insomniac Games.
