Mainly due to out of control spiraling costs, various publishers, led by Electronic Arts, are considering not attending or downsizing E3 2007, resulting in other companies questioning if it's worth the trouble at all. Major publishers have requested a meeting with the organizing Entertainment Software Association body to discuss finances.

An official announcement from the ESA, with possible changes, is expected in the next few days.
