It has been several months now since the ESA announced that E3, the annual gaming trade show held in L.A. every May, would not only be moved to July at a new venue, but would see a dramatic reduction in size. IGN reports on the sad new reality that the once almost circus-like event known as E3 will be relegated to an airport hangar in Santa Monica, California (no joke).

“A map of the event shows there will only be two sizes of booths — 20×20 foot booths for the twelve biggest publishers, and smaller meeting rooms for everyone else. Electronic Arts’ 20 square feet will be quite a bit smaller than its gigantic 360-degree video projection room at last year’s E3,” their article reads. Enjoying the 20×20 space (some publishers will have to deal with smaller) are: Microsoft, Nintendo, Sony, Electronic Arts, Capcom, Vivendi, Namco Bandai, THQ, Sony Online, SEGA, Konami and Square Enix.
