Video game professionals and enthusiasts will jam Downtown Los Angeles this week. That’s because the annual E3 (or Electronic Entertainment Expo) convention will take place at the Los Angeles Convention Center on Tuesday-Thursday, June 12-14.
The event is expected to draw more than 60,000 people who work in the video game industry, along with hardcore gamers. Hardware suppliers such as Microsoft and Nintendo will show off their latest gear, while game developers including Bethesda and Ubisoft will be announcing new games and demoing upcoming releases. There will also be an e-sports arena set up in the Convention Center’s South Hall, a first for the convention staged by the Electronic Software Association.
Attendees can expect competitions, merchandise and people in costume from games such as Assassin’s Creed, Fallout and Uncharted. More information is at e3expo.com.
