E3 2011 Booth Babe Babes Bonanza!

This year’s E3 was packed with booth babe babes, making our time at the Los Angeles Convention Center one filled with titillation and excitement. We’ve collected together a gallery of the sexiest booth babe babes we saw as we made our way around, so you too can enjoy their camera-wielding hotness. Enjoy!

As you can see, we’ve had to cover up the eyes of these booth babe babes, because we believe they would be just too SEXY for you to handle otherwise.

First up is this gorgeous figure, delicately sporting a wad of white paper as he snaps away. You can put our wad under your arm any time!

Phwoar! We’d like to shine this dome any time.

Is that an extending telephoto lens? We can’t wait to see it reach its full extension.

Hey, you see us? You LIKE US?

Who is this dark, mysterious stranger? He can slink in an leave Milk Tray in our rooms any time.

Hey cheeky! Spend a lot of time bent over like that?!

We’d like you to cup our “camera” just like that. We like a guy who can handle his large equipment so expertly.

Any time you want to flash for us, mister, you’re very welcome.

Cor, what a gang. And hey, man in white, we can’t wait for you to be on your knees in front of us!

There’s nothing sexier than a man who leaves the advert in his show badge all week. Mmmmmmmmmm.

Ew, a girl? Gross.

We’d like to have both his straps across our shoulders.

You’d look even better posing next to us!

Mmmm, we’d like to listen to Greensleeves while you film us together.

Hey, you in the shades, thanks for saving us needing to add the black bar.

There’s nothing we like better than a group of men taking all their shots at once.

    I’m crying with laughter here. Bravo!

  2. CMaster says:

    Lol, no boobs.

    Also, how classy are all the “arm around waist, hand on arse” moments…

    • Bhazor says:

      To be honest I was expecting much more hovering hand syndrome. From both the guys and the models. Especially the models.

    • Malawi Frontier Guard says:

      That website is funny until you slowly realize that the guy running it is probably the real creeper.

  3. Petethegoat says:

    How did I know this was John Walker?

  4. Legionary says:

    Nicely played Mr Walker.

  5. by.a.teammate says:

    Emily Pankhurst would be proud

  6. Bhazor says:

    You may say this is demeaning but when you dress like that you can’t be surprised when people stare at you.

  7. Stevostin says:

    This is kind of a cure for DNF innuendos. Bravo !

  8. Bornemannen says:

    I think we need a NSFW tag on this one, I am too excited to work at the moment…..

    Made my afternoon. Well done.

  11. arienette says:

    Too much sexy for one article.

  12. futage says:

    I approve of this greatly.

  13. Gorgol says:

    I don’t get it. Would have preferred to see photos of the actual booth babes. This was lame at best >:(

    • DainIronfoot says:

      This may not be the website for you.

      Woosh—————— The Point

    • Bhazor says:

      Gorgol’s head.

    • Protagoras says:

      You guys know that he’s a troll right?

    • SpinalJack says:

      lol, made my day

    • Jubaal says:

      Erm…. are you gonna tell ‘im or shall I?

    • Zogtee says:

      No, no, Gorgol. We have to pretend to be very politically correct here and act like we don’t even look at the girls. We believe this might actually impress them. Not that we would want to impress them, of course. I mean, they’re girls, right? Eww and all that.

    • Mendrake says:

      Besides, some of us would not mind some gender diversity in the booth babe department…

    • PFlute says:

      No, no, Zogtee. We have to be kind of snarky and defensive about people daring to make some comment on the inherent creepiness of boothbabes. It’s really important that we try to reduce logical concerns people have for a myriad of reasons to ridiculous things, like trying to get dates.

  14. Kid_A says:

    I have… the weirdest boner.

    Someone needs to give us pictures of John Walker taking pictures of these guys and the cycle will be complete. Dark side.

    Heheh. Nice one John. Any hot pics of Dan Griddled-Octopus eating his pizza?

    • Griddle Octopus says:

      I was taking photos as well, so I couldn’t. I do regret not taking a photo of the babe taking photos of the babes taking photos of the babes though.

      Was it calamari? Or would that be too much regression?

  17. Gothnak says:

    I wish the F1 website i frequent did a similar thing at a Grand Prix… i think just because i’m a bloke who likes F1 i must want to look at women who were at the event. i dunno why people bother when there is so much porn out there.. :s

    • Raniz says:

      Not applicable to F1, but cosplay can be a lot sexier than porn…

    • Dozer says:

      With my old housemates, we used to have drinking rules for watching F1 – whenever the cameraman put an attractive young woman in the centre of the shot.

    • Mr Ak says:


      He’s dead now?

  18. sinister agent says:

    Y’know, for a second after hearing about this update – just a second – I was saddened and deeply disappointed.

    Then RPS. You guyyys.

    • futage says:

      I went through the same process.

    • Skeletor68 says:

      I second that motion. After being disappointed with 1UP and IGN peddling the lowest common denominator as usual this was a breath of fresh air. Thank you RPS!

    • TheSaddestSort says:

      Stay classy RPS, stay classy.

    Oh my,

    Git deep in ther boiii! *squeal*

    • Joyo says:

      More meta: A post of 20 pictures of John Walker taking pictures of men taking pictures of “booth babes”. The pictures of John are taken by the booth babes.

  21. MiniMatt says:

    Thank god and well played. Was moderately suprised at last year’s Infosec when a certain purveyor of pricey syslog software decced out it’s stand with a subtle lycra-silicon blend.

  22. Joyo says:

    argggh only one ponytail I *hate* it when they have short hair, that’s way too butch…what do they think I am, a lesbian???

    ……I’m going to my bunk.

  24. Oozo says:

    I would slow clap. If only my right hand was not so awfully busy right now.

    Well done gents, with class and aplomb as usual

  27. John P says:

    This is totally amazing.

  28. jon_hill987 says:

    To be honest I don’t know which is more demeaning, the job of the booth babes* or the fact that various [EDIT: publishers] think it will help sell a game which shows what they think of their audience.
    * Who are presumably compensated and fully aware of what the job entails, people do far worse things for less money after all.

    • adonf says:

      “the fact that various publishers think it will help sell a game”

      fixed !

      (although developers can be really sexist too)

    • Grygus says:

      I don’t see how it’s demeaning for the model at all; she gets paid to stand there and smile, which is what all modelling gigs entail at the end of the day. If there is anything demeaning in her job, it’s that it’s effective, i.e., men may be demeaning themselves.

    • jon_hill987 says:

      Edited: Publishers was what I meant to type.
      @Grygus: Yeah. That was the point I was attempting to make.

    • Gorgol says:

      Err, how are men demeaning themselves by finding beautiful women visually appealing? Its a fundamental and evolutionarily essential part of their nature.

    • jon_hill987 says:

      No. The demeaning part is that publishers use it to sell games. Yes, (nearly) all men like looking at a pretty woman, it can’t be helped, but they use that weakness against us to sell an unrelated product (unless it is Duke Nukem).

    • FKD says:

      I agree. And it was my understanding that a year or two ago there was a big thing about it where they finally decided to do away with the “booth babes” and were going to actually..I duno..focus on showing their game. I believe at this same time there was something about how it was no longer going to be open to the public and only for reporters or some such. I could be thinking of something else though..

    • Mr. Icarus says:

      Somehow I find it in me to enjoy the babe and despise the game at the same time…

  29. Darkelp says:

    Now I have to try and explain to my work colleagues why I am laughing so much.
    Thanks John.

  30. JohnArr says:

    Debbie, 23, from Halifax says: “This great article uses humor to highlight the distasteful practice of using scantily clad models to lure immature men to a company’s booth. Those captured here have at some point undoubtedly argued that games are not a childish, male centric medium”.

    • MiniMatt says:

      That’s a great pair of points Debbie.

    • Teddy Leach says:

      Do tell Debbie that she’s brilliant.

    • Grygus says:

      I think Debbie is being unfair. Maturity doesn’t mean that men stop finding women attractive, nor should it. Booth babes are the equivalent of a shoe sale in the middle of a charity event. It would be easy to make fun of the women thus distracted, but the real skepticism should be reserved for the calculated exploitation of a perfectly normal impulse.

    • Sleepymatt says:

      When did she leave Dallas?

      *slinks away in shame*

    • Marijn says:

      @Grygus Pity that you have to undermine your argument with such a clearly sexist analogy.

  31. hav says:

    I came here looking for some hot booth babes and I found even hotter booth babes than I was expecting. Bravo RPS, bravo!

  32. phoenixdk says:

    Thank you, thank you, thank you

  33. mda says:

    I feel ashamed to be a man :(

    • LionsPhil says:

      As you should.

    • Gorgol says:

      WTF? Seriously? You’re ashamed to be men? You guys are pathetic, rofl.

    • DrGonzo says:

      This puts us at least another 10 years away from my mum believing g ames are a serious medium probably

    • Grape Flavor says:

      There’s nothing quite as sad as self-inflicted sexism. Pathetic indeed.

      GTFO or get an operation. No one wants to hear your ridiculous PC bullshit about how you feel guilty about your junk.

      EDIT: oh wait this is rps we lap this shit up

      EDIT 2: This was a really goddamn stupid way to put this and I apologize for it.

    • Kandon Arc says:

      @DrGonzo: I guess your mum doesn’t belief F1 is a serious motor sport then? Or the NFL isn’t a serious league?

    • The Hammer says:

      I’m glad you corrected yourself there, Grape, because I was just about to jump in and savage your “No one wants to hear…” claim!

      Also, hurray for you! You’ve successfully pressed the “political correctness” button, the instant win for all your “it’s gone mad” needs.

    • Grape Flavor says:

      @The Hammer
      Oh I’m sorry. It’s just that I view myself as a human being and respect myself as one instead of loathing myself and feeling guilty because of something as trivial as my chromosomal setup. If you want to inflict sexist nonsense upon yourself and feel a perverse gratification from doing so, I can’t stop you. Have fun.

    • DiamondDog says:

      Stop before someone notices you’re an idiot.

    • Grape Flavor says:

      Stop before some one notices you’re a nasty little fuck who has nothing to contribute to the conversation besides uncalled-for personal attacks. I said nothing that anyone should object to.

    • Reapy says:

      And here I though the whole puritanical self hating thing was just a north american thing and you guys were all enlightened across the channel there.

      News flash, attractive women are attractive, makes male want to look, male looking also notices sign for new game, creates brand recognition, when in store notices brand, buys product.

      Anyway, article is funny. For the rest of you upset to find women attractive enjoy living your life that way, and be sure to beat yourself when you return home for the crime of having found an attractive woman attractive.

    • Mad Hamish says:

      ah Gorgol and Grape Flavour, there’s nothing quite like two idiots fuming at a joke. The funny thing is that they get the joke, yet they still rage.

      Oh and NFL isn’t a serious league.

    • DiamondDog says:

      @Grape Flavor
      No, this isn’t a conversation. This is you sounding slightly angry that the majority of people on here found this article a refreshing change. You insult our intelligence when you say we “lap this shit up”. I’ll make my own mind up thanks, I don’t need you or RPS to tell me what I should think of booth babes.

      edit: Actually you’re right the insult was not needed. I apologise.

    • Marijn says:

      The original post didn’t so much express male self loathing at the general idea of being aroused by an attractive woman, but rather at the commercial application of that mechanism, and our collective willingness to stand for such ridiculously transparent pandering. I love looking at beautiful women – I hate being thought of as making (purchasing) decisions primarily with my dick.

    • Grape Flavor says:

      Welcome to Assumption Land!

      I too find this article a clever and refreshing change from the lame “booth babes” features on other sites.

      I personally think booth babes are silly and embarrassing, not that I’m trying to tell you what you should think.

      I was objecting to the comments “I feel ashamed to be a man” and “As you should”. I do not think anyone should be made to feel badly or “ashamed” about their biological sex, gender, or sexual orientation. I’m pretty sure last time I checked such ideas were called “bigotry”.

      And for stating this simple concept I get shouted down as an “idiot”? Wait, who’s out of line here, again?

    • CMaster says:

      I’m pretty sure the “As you should” was a joke, guys. Not so sure either way about the original post however.

    • Grape Flavor says:

      I think the booth babes phenomenon is indeed insulting to gamers as a whole, but honestly, what are we really going to “collectively” do about it besides mocking it online? I’ll be damned if I’m going to boycott great games just because the publisher decides to pull a tasteless stunt at their E3 booth.

      The thing to do is for the attendees to not show so much interest in this kind of game “publicity”, but as we can see, that doesn’t seem like it’s happening any time soon.

    • Marijn says:

      I think you got shouted down because of the way you put your points across.”GTFO or get an operation” hardly seems conducive to a civil discussion.

      Besides, it’s a concept that hardly needs defending. I seriously doubt the original commenter is handing in his male membership card, and “As you should” was clearly meant sarcastically (check the other comments by LionsPhil if you don’t believe me).

    • Quizboy says:

      Let’s quote Grape Flavor again!

      GTFO or get an operation. No one wants to hear your ridiculous PC bullshit about how you feel guilty about your junk.

      …not that I’m trying to tell you what you should think.

      You’re a man of many facets, I’ll give you that much.

    • Marijn says:

      Well, the only thing we CAN do is make vocal our rejection of these practices, and at least boycott websites that feature more traditional booth babe articles.

      In fact, that’s why articles like this are worthwhile: to make people stop and think about what they’re tacitly condoning in the industry they love. Let’s hold publishers and websites accountable for their complicity in the rampant sexism that’s prevalent in games! That’s the only way to effect change.

      If you look at the comments section here or (especially) on other websites, however, there’s still (as you say) a lot of apologists to convert…

    • Grape Flavor says:

      Yay! You can copy and paste unrelated quotes together! You should go into hack journalism, you could create quite a (fabricated) sensation with those kind of skills.

    • Grape Flavor says:

      No, I reject that in its entirety. I think in terms of individual human beings., not groupism, collectivism, or identity politics. Each is responsible for his/her own self as a unique human being.

      Why should I feel responsible for something I am not guilty of? It’s a fundamentally ridiculous idea. If I was of German descent yet never even been to Germany should I feel personally responsible for the Holocaust?

      Asking someone to feel “guilt”, “responsibility” whatever you call it, for the actions of individuals completely unassociated with him/her, simply because they have the same type of gonads, is honestly such a regressive type of thinking that I’m appalled it is given credence in this day and age.

      This idea of collective moral contamination by “group” has been responsible for so many unspeakable atrocities over the last century or so that you’d think it’d have been beaten out of us. Clearly, not yet.

    • DiamondDog says:

      Grape, I shouldn’t have called you an idiot and I have apologised for that, but you don’t get to play the victim when you post something like this:

      “There’s nothing quite as sad as self-inflicted sexism. Pathetic indeed.

      GTFO or get an operation. No one wants to hear your ridiculous PC bullshit about how you feel guilty about your junk.

      EDIT: oh wait this is rps we lap this shit up”

      You started out adversarial and got peoples backs up. You can’t then complain about the lack of a proper conversation.

    • Marijn says:

      @Kobzon @Grape Flavor Good points, both of you. I guess the thing to do is to take a moral stand against any atrocities (past or present) that are being (or have been) committed by the group you belong to, WITHOUT implying that you yourself are or have been responsible for it. In this particular case there’s a clear moral imperative in doing so because so many of our brothers seem unconvinced that this kind of objectification is problematic.

    • cjlr says:

      Grape Flavour (just, maybe, dial it back a little, man! cf diamonddog) may have put it across needlessly confrontationally (comments like ‘nasty little fuck’ immediately followed by denouncing uncalled-for personal attacks, f’r’ex – class act), BUT!
      … It’s a damn important point. Any group you are a member of, solely by genetic lottery – race, nationality, gender, sexuality, even, to a large degree, religion, reflects nothing back on you.
      I have to disagree, kobzon. Responsibility? I don’t see it. As for what to do about it – why apologize for anything, if you didn’t do it? Just be excellent to each other. That’s enough.
      And to think, all this provoked by what was probably a joke.
      Edit – simulposted. Tight, marijn. Tight.

    • Phydaux says:

      Oh Grape… you Goodwined hard then.

    • Grape Flavor says:

      It was a very foolish way of stating my opinion and I apologize for it. I seem to have quite a habit of hastily posting things in a confrontational manner around here, which I am trying to fix.

      @Marijn, cjlr, Reapy
      Good points.

      Clearly yes, I should, but not for the reasons you suggest. Worldview = sound. Habit of pissing off other Earth inhabitants with terrible posts = not sound whatsoever.

    • Marijn says:

      @Grape Flavor Don’t go scoping out any underground abodes just yet – we can all fly off the handle sometimes, especially on the internet! Good to end on such a reconciliatory note.

    • LionsPhil says:

      Holy crap this subthread.

      At least CMaster has a working deadpan humour detector.

    • mda says:

      Wow @ my sub thread.

      I wasn’t totally serious …… OR WAS I? Flame on!

      And you don’t even know what I meant by it. Wow again @ sub-thread.

    Photographing is a job. It pays the bills. Many of them are single fathers.

    • Flobulon says:

      I really don’t think John was trying to mock the photographers themselves for doing their jobs, I got the impression he was taking the piss out of the fact that there is a demand for the work they do from the gaming press (and in turn a demand among gamers for this sort of thing).

      Edit: WOOOOOSH

    • Teddy Leach says:

      As a photographer myself, I… Actually, I don’t know where I was going to take that, but kudos to Mr. Walker.

    • DrazharLn says:

      Flobulon, you missed the joke.

    • Urthman says:

      From the text, it looks like John is parodying the silly IGN / Kotaku “Booth Babe Photo Spreads With Added Silly Pimp Talk” more than the booth babes themselves.

  36. innokenti says:

    I can’t believe that RPS would go beyond the awful practices of other sites and dive headlong into this pit of depravity. Now that you have opened the door to it, other sites will take your lead in future E3s and other game conventions. You should all be ashamed.

  37. Vroomparrot says:

    I do something similar to this. For example on a bus journey, if a pretty young lady gets on or off the bus, rather than gawp at said lady I watch the male gawpers and quietly chuckle to myself.

    Don’t know who’s sadder really.

    • Gorgol says:

      Wow, our comments got deleted for no good reason except difference of opinion.

      Good bye RPS. You are a good source of PC games news but I will not follow totalitarianism.

    • John Walker says:

      A comment was deleted because it contained a lazy homophobic slur. If that’s your reason to not want to read our site, bye!

    • Gorgol says:

      Wow, what that dude wrote is what you call a “lazy homophobic slur”?! Hah! Ridiculous! Anyway, if that was a lazy homophobic slur then the comment we are replying to contains a lazy heterophobic slur. Double standards much? Pffft whatever.

      Dramatic walk-outs work better when you don’t come back in again half an hour later

    • Gorgol says:

      God I knew some lame ass would make fun of me replying after having said goodbye.

      It’s not about drama, its about a consumer (me) voicing a complaint about a product (RPS) before I leave, and avoiding what I see as misrepresentation of the deleted posts.

    • Grape Flavor says:

      (In this post I said something about male sexuality being considered dirty and primitive by society whereas female sexuality is held to be healthy and empowering)

    • The Hammer says:

      Haha, consumers and products.


      @Grape: can you please enlighten me to how you came to your conclusion there? Who the fuck has said anything about male sexuality, and actually: what does male sexuality consist of, according to you?

    • Chris D says:

      Who’s the lamer? The lame-ass or the lame-ass who checks back to see if anyone has replied to his reply about walking out?

      I look forward to hearing back from you shortly

    • Quizboy says:

      Hilarious how so many ‘real men’ are delicate little flowers the moment things don’t go their way.

      Doubly funny, of course, because they wouldn’t know what to do with themselves in a society that didn’t bend over backwards to service their every little need. Poor spoiled darlings.

    • Grape Flavor says:

      I’m going to pre-emptively cut off this conversation because it is clear to me that a lot of nasty assumptions are already being made and this precludes any hope of a productive discussion. I don’t need to deal with this shit or bend over backwards to fix your hasty stereotypes.

    • Quizboy says:

      GTFO or get an operation. No one wants to hear your ridiculous PC bullshit about how you feel guilty about your junk.

      Nasty assumptions? Oh, pumpkin, you meant nasty assumptions made about you. Honestly – you rationalise your idiot thinking as natural to your sex, assume anyone who doesn’t think the same is just hating an unchangeable innate self, then faint clean away like an 18th-century housemaid when anyone dares challenge you. There’s nothing to assume; you’re completely transparent.

    • The Hammer says:


      What on earth is productive about writing,

      “GTFO or get an operation. No one wants to hear your ridiculous PC bullshit about how you feel guilty about your junk.”

      Puh-leeeese. If you’re going to take the moral highground, forsake your hypocricy at the door.

    • Jim Rossignol says:

      Gorgol, you keep protesting that there’s no freedom of speech, and the answer is always the same: no, there isn’t. This is our website, we can delete comments as we see fit, not as *you* see fit.

    • Grape Flavor says:

      I did none of those things whatsoever. That is conjecture on your part. I refuse to get into an argument where you are trying to tell me who I am or what I think. You don’t know that I’m even straight or male. So I do indeed think you really need to back off the nasty assumptions, unless you really think you know me better than I do based on one tiny comment on the internet. In which case you are clearly an idiot.

      @The Hammer says
      It was confrontational, sure, but I don’t think anyone should feel guilty about their sex, gender, or sexual orientation. These issues are important to me on apersonal level and as such they can get me rather worked up. I apologize profusely for the tone of the comments as it is very clear at this point that they were largely taken the wrong way.

      unless you really think you know me better than I do based on one tiny comment on the internet.

      I know the you you choose to put across on the Internet. I don’t know – or care – a damn thing for the special snowflake that is you in real life. I’ll engage with what you put out there, which in this case was frothing ranting, enormous presumption (the idea that calling out sexism is somehow creating it, that someone feeling ashamed to be associated with those whose actions they find repulsive must be self-hating and transgendered, and so on) and that good old meaningless conservative bogeyman, political correctness. These are things you said. If you think you’re being misrepresented, you only have yourself to blame.

      If you really do bash out these comments while angry, you’ve no rational grounds to get as emotional and teary as you have here when people respond in kind. You were confrontational: you were confronted. Control yourself better if you actually want to have a conversation.

      And if you say you’re ‘cutting off a conversation’, at least have the staying power to remain flounced for more than 36 minutes.

      Point by point:

      -Do you? Do you really? Have you read the entirety of my internet discussions with countless different people? Or will you admit you read into my couple comments? And there is no separate “you”s. I don’t have multiple personality disorder. My internet posts are not a “character”. It is one and the same. Are yours? I still am not presuming you’re personally a mean spirited fanatic based on your posts in this thread. It would be nice if you could extend a similar courtesy.

      – Saying you are ashamed of being your gender, biological or otherwise, is not “calling out sexism”. How? It is sexism if the word is to be held to it’s dictionary meaning whatsoever. “Hatred, prejudice, stereotyping, or discrimination on the basis of sex.” Shame about a sex is a form of prejudice.

      – If someone “associates” you with other individuals based on you both having a similar chromosomal layout, that’s their problem not yours. I don’t know these photographers who are gawping at these women. I do not abet their behavior. I am not “associated” with them. I do not feel guilty, nor should I.

      – The get an operation thing was just a sarcastic line saying if you hate your gender so much, change it. It didn’t mean anything about truly transgendered people.

      – I do blame myself for becoming misrepresented, although for some reason it only seems to happen on this site in particular. I could perhaps have thought of a different way to phrase things, with a clearer head, that would not be open to such miscommunication. However I would like to amiably end this discussion now that I have made clear that I did not mean what you thought I meant. Or will you persist that you know my mind better than I do?

      I thought this kind of flaming was exclusive for IGN comment section. RPS, you’ve gone mainstream.

    Maybe things have changed this night. This use to work this way:
    – Mens atracted by atractive womens.
    – Womens tryiing to look atractive.
    So… a way to attract males is to put attractive females. . We are programmed this way.
    We can go against our programation, but only soo much.

      We can go completely against all forms of programming; that’s why I didn’t murder the dude who cut infront of me in the supermarket line. It’s why most men don’t go around raping women, who they find attractive.

    • Joyo says:

      The replies to this comment are not necessarily *why* I read RPS, but why I feel compelled to be a part of its community.

      Tei’s comment? It’s what I expect on gaming sites (well, worse)

      All four of the replies?

      Make me expect better of gaming communities.

      (note: that is a good thing)

      No one is saying that you shouldn’t be attracted to attractive women. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t embarrassing and sad to use them as props to sell video games.
