Well, GDC is winding down and already we're looking ahead to the new E3. The Entertainment Software Association has begin sending out the first invitations to the restructured show, set for July 11-13. That's going to be considerably warmer than previous shows, which were held in May.

Full invitations, complete with scheduling details and travel-planning invitations are set to go out next month. This is one we're going to be watching closely, because no one really knows just how the new show is going to go down now that it's been scaled back. We do know one thing, however -- Nintendo will be there, and that's all that matters.
