So reading Kotaku this morning, I spied a news item that made me go huh?
Apparently, E3, that "Media & Business Summit," brought to you by the Entertainment Software Association, will be returning to LA for next year's event (July 15 - 17). But it won't be the the E3 of yore.
A smaller and more tailored summit will take its place, with media still invite-only.
