In an announcement that will mean very little to the majority of you, the Electronic Software Association has announced that E3 will remain in Los Angeles until 2015. A sojourn to Vegas had been rumoured while the West Hall of the LA Convention Center is reconstructed into an epic new Farmer’s Field stadium – but the ESA has decided to splinter the event instead.

E3 2013 will take place at the LA Convention Center, as well as LA Live and various other venues in the nearby area.

“ESA supports AEG's mission and vision for downtown Los Angeles and the areas surrounding the Los Angeles Convention Center,” gaffer Michael Gallagher noted in a statement.

"We appreciate AEG's willingness to work in partnership with our organisation to not only create a construction schedule to accommodate the needs of our guests, but also their commitment to incorporate many of our suggestions into the design of the new venues.

"These resulting upgrades to the facility will truly benefit all conventions and further establish Los Angeles as industry leaders. We are glad we could come to an agreement that keeps E3 in its traditional home."

Next year’s event will take place between 11th and 13th June, a date you'll probably want to mark on your calendars – after all, it’s widely expected that the next full-blown PlayStation console will be officially unveiled at the show.
