Games Expo 2007: beginning of the end of GTS?

As you might expect, the announcement of the vaguely Games Quarterly-affilliated is wreckin’ all kinds of shop out there. GAMA loyalists are calling it unprofessional, divisive, et cetera; those less than happy with GTS as an industry trade show claim that GTS wasn’t super likely to go on in 2007 anyway. (Games Expo is scheduled for GTS’ traditional March weekend.) Me, I think competition is good and while GAMA is decent at running a consumer-oriented show at Origins, their performance with GTS shows a lot of room for improvement. Also, the thumbnail cover on Games Quarterly’s site looks like it has a headline of “City of Herpes” if you squint.
