Meet the New E3 (Or: It’s the Same as the OLD E3, Only Different)

The Entertainment Software Association has announced its plans for the new, redesigned E3.

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?
