The ESA has just announced that E3 2009 will be held June 2-4 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. The event will welcome all qualified "international and US-based media, analysts, retailers, developers and business partners." Meaning, we're back to the way things were before the last two downsized years.
The event will not be open to the public as it was previously rumored, but it appears that admission will be as lax as we remember it. Expect tens of thousands of people to converge on the LACC next June. More details to follow.
