E3 successor set for ’07?

Consumer site Gamespot has reported that the new event is to be backed by International Data Group, the media firm behind the GamePro publication and the MacWorld event.

The LA Convention Centre is said to be expecting 30,000 GamePro Expo attendees initially, and is also expected to host more focused trade elements, a strong consumer slant and competitive games events.

Next-gen.biz has since backed the claims, with a source close to the site effectively confirming the event. Now the gaming world awaits an official announcement and the backing of the ESA, which would categorically confirm the rumours.

ESA president Doug Lowenstein spoke exclusively to MCV this week, revealing more details of the newly-rejigged E3 Media and Business Summit. The report will be published tomorrow.
