    E3

    Concept »

    The Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) was a video game industry trade show held annually since 1995. It was usually held in the late spring or early summer in Los Angeles, California.

    Nope, E3 Isn’t Leaving Los Angeles

    I'll just have to eat enough deep dish pizza while I'm still hanging out in the midwest.
    I'll just have to eat enough deep dish pizza while I'm still hanging out in the midwest.

    UPDATE: Seems like all of E3 will still be contained in one place, so freaking out about having to drive all around Los Angeles appears to be preamture. But I like freaking out.

    --

    I’d been crossing my fingers E3 might move to Chicago the next few years, but that’s not to be.

    Despite some rumors Los Angeles’ plans for a football stadium would push E3 elsewhere, all parties involved have come to an agreement that will keep E3 in the same place through 2015.

    Los Angeles still doesn’t have a football team yet, of course.

    According to the press release, the city of Los Angeles will plan construction around E3, and have apparently taken note of design suggestions for the impending changes. It also means we'll be shuttling through endless venues (currently being pitched as a "plus"), which will no doubt make E3 a huge logistical pain!

    The dates for E3 2013 (can’t believe I typed that) are June 11-13.

    Not a surprise. LA gets a ton of these expos. I always hear about E3 moving or slimming down, but it tends to stay the same.

    I don't know what other city might be great for E3. Vegas seems like a logical pick for conventions.

    Dave said that the reason it was there (and the end of SWG thing before it) was because otherwise the site would break without something in the box. I'm looking at the homepage now and there's no Coming Up box so I guess they fixed it at some point.

    Too bad no national chains sell actual deep dish pizza. I'll probably live my whole life without ever getting to try one. It is the only type of pizza that deserves the 'pie' moniker. If you're the type that calls thin crust pizzas 'pies', you should be shot.

    I would say that the date of e3 being set should be the headline. e3's location is only relevant to people in the games industry, this is one of those stories that it's kind of weird to see pop up on every site considering 98% of the people who read it cannot attend the conference.
