These appear to be just a few of the T-shirts being sold near the Los Angeles Convention Center where E3 is being held this week. Unlike in previous years, the event is open to the public this time, so naturally vendors are looking to make a buck by selling lazy merch.

The merch at this year's E3 is just impossibly lame. pic.twitter.com/JqT6zM16ce— Ben Hanson (@yozetty) June 11, 2017
Game Informer‘s Ben Hanson spotted the above two textiles hanging inside a display window. Here’s the third:
The last one is actually available online at the official E3 merchandise store. For just $US18 ($24) you too can plumb the depths of gamer irony.
There’s also one riffing on Batman and another that mines Asteroids. “E3 Rock Star,” it’s titled, and in case you were wondering, it’s 100 per cent cotton and fitted at the bicep. Show off those guns and your gamer pride.
The only question I’m left with is whether Phil Spencer will somehow find a way to wear all three.
