The Entertainment Software Association (ESA) announced the 2008 E3 Media & Business Summit will take place from 15-17 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

Last year's E3 – the world's most popular computer gaming show - was held in Santa Monica, California. The event was largely criticised for its reduced size when compared to previous shows and lack of a single, convenient location.

"The event will continue to focus on the business of the computer and video game industry, with an emphasis on press events and small meetings with media, development, and other key sectors," said the ESA.

"While there will be opportunities for game demonstrations, the 2008 E3 Media & Business Summit will not feature the large trade show environment of previous years."
