E3 2009: Swag Roundup

In stark contrast to last year’s smaller, more subdued E3, the Electronic Entertainment Expo was back in full force this year.

To many, E3 2009 saw the return of the show to its roots, including much of the luster of previous years: massive, multi-million dollar booths, scantily clad booth babes, and of course, no shortage of swag.

The sheer volume of game related items given out this year was staggering – everything from t-shirts, to notepads, to USB flash drives, and everything in between.
