Entertainment Software Association President Doug Lowenstein will lose his long job title when he steps down in early 2007, according to GameSpot. It appears that he "has accepted the top position with a still-forming trade organization that would represent a consortium of retail investment firms."

As the head of the ESA, Lowenstein's image was thrown in the spotlight when E3 was downsized and reborn as the E3 Media Festival. Not to mention certain anti-game activists seem to point to him whenever the industry makes a misstep (or can interpreted to have flubbed).

So who will become the new president? Oft-rumored Entertainment Consumers Association founder Hal Halpin has denied interest. But don't let that stop you from voting Halpin in Game Politics' informal / unofficial poll to name the successor.
