Future US Secures Publishing Rights To Official E³ Show Daily Newspaper

Deal marks Future’s second time at the helm of the indispensable guide to E³

South San Francisco, CA (January 26, 2006) - Future US, the leading publisher of cutting-edge games, computing, action sports and musician magazines, has secured the publishing rights from 2006 to 2008 for the Official E³ Show Daily, the newspaper and information source for the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E³).

Held yearly in May at the Los Angeles Convention Center, E³ is the world's largest interactive entertainment trade show. This renowned event is where the computer and video game industry announces its lineup of new releases and products for the year ahead. Last year, over 1,100 products were launched at E3 with an audience of 4,000 media and 70,000 attendees.

E³, with its cutting-edge designed booths, high energy performances, and interactive displays featuring the latest this unique industry has to offer, is open to trade professionals and media covering the industry only. With so much going on, the Official E³ Show Daily is an attendee's best way to navigate the host of exhibitors and not miss the show's breaking news stories.

The tabloid-sized paper will contain roughly 60 pages of content and advertising, and will be printed nightly before each of the three show days. Each issue features breaking news stories, exhibitor listings and updates, floor maps, and transportation information.

"Future will deliver an Official E³ Show Daily newspaper of the highest quality," said Simon Whitcombe, publishing director for Future's Youth division. "This opportunity further strengthens Future's position as the definitive voice of the interactive entertainment industry."

The 2006 E³ Show Daily will be edited by Colin Campbell, editor-in-chief of Next Generation (www.next-gen.biz ), Future's leading game industry trade site. With more than 20 years experience covering the interactive entertainment industry, Campbell and his team of writers will deliver breaking news from the show floor.

Future previously published a high-quality Official E³ Show Daily from 1999 through 2001. This marks Future's second time at the helm of the E³ Show Daily.
