Santa Monica, Ca., will be the event's new home and it'll be held in July, not May. The event will be held in a series of hotel suites, as well as in a main venue -- the Barker Hangar. The idea, of course, is to let the people who need to conduct business (and make no bones about it, before E3 became a circus sideshow, it was intended to be a business convention) do so in relative peace.
The show is "invite-only," meaning I am praying that someone decides I'm not worthy to attend. Did I mention that I really hate videogames?
