an odd E3 in Santa Monica, the show's apparently picking up stakes again. UK trade publication MCV says that E3 will be moving next year. No, it's not particularly earth-shattering news, considering that the ESA circulated a survey asking where they should move the thing to, but it's nice to see that the group recognizes that Santa Monica wasn't the perfect place for the event.
Pending an upcoming review of the event, the date and format are subject to change too. With a dramatic scale back and a new man at the top of the organization, E3 in flux should probably be considered the rule rather than the exception for the time being.
Update: We heard back from the ESA, but they're not commenting at the moment. Also, thanks to Fernando Rocker for the jazzy new pic!
