The Electronic Entertainment Expo, better known as E3, officially starts today in Los Angeles, California (USA). It’s the biggest video game event of the year. Not the largest in terms of number of attendees, but the most important due the the sheer amount of game announcements that are made here each year. It’s one of the few gaming events that actually gets nationally televised on cable TV and has articles written by The New York Times, The Washington Post, and other prestigious newspapers.
In a nutshell, E3 is a massive conference that brings all of the major video game console manufacturers, publishers, developers, fans, and media together to announce, tease, play, and market video games and the entertainment around them (including TV and movies).
