https://www.theverge.com/gaming/2012...ngeles-in-2013According to a report in the L.A. Times, E3 may pick up stakes and relocate next year if issues aren't resolved with a proposed renovation to the Los Angeles Convention Center. "We're still in discussions with the city of Los Angeles," ESA chief Mike Gallagher told the publication, "but we have a number of issues that still need to be resolved. If we can't resolve them, we are preparing to go elsewhere."
The ESA has previously balked at renewing its contract with the LACC because of the planned construction of Farmer's Field, a stadium that would be housed where the convention center's West Hall currently sits. Among other issues, the ESA is worried about access to the convention center's show floor during construction.
The ESA didn't comment, but "executives close to the association" reportedly pointed to San Francisco, New York, Chicago and New Orleans as possible new homes for the gaming industry's biggest event.
Due to the continued downsizing of the video games industry, all going to be held in my front room.
I have Pringles.
New Orleans would be the shit, that's like 2 hours from here.
Are they going to leave the games industry on a roof to die?
I would love it to be back in Atlanta. 1.5 hour drive FTW.

The E3 after parties would be EPIC if held in NOLA.
Chicago or Atlanta would both be much closer to me.
I hope to get back to Indiana at some point so Chicago would be great.
It'd likely be SF or another west coast city, most studios are out west and flights from Japan are quicker and cheaper than flying across the US.
The big news is that E3 and Comic-Con will now be merged into one big extravaganza.
