The event, which has been held each year at the Los Angeles Convention Center, attracts tens of thousands of journalists, exhibitors, retailers and others. E3 has long been known for the mammoth booths of exhibitors like Electronic Arts, Activision, Sony, Microsoft and others, and the ESA’s statement suggested that the show would no longer feature booths of that scope. The aim of new evolution would be to accommodate more developers and allow more content while easing the financial investment required by developers to participate.
