This Thursday is the first day of a new games conference called E FOR ALL (E standing for ENTERTAINMENT) at LACC downtown. This new video game show is hoping to be viewed as the big replacement for the late great E3 (Entertainment Electronics Expo) that used to take over the LA Convention Center every spring. We will see if it lives up to the hype. Goes until Sunday. Also, there is a related event during E For All: Friday is the night for VIDEO GAMES LIVE, where video game music is performed for a live audience.
INTEL is one of many companies who will have a presence at E For All. See excerpts from their press release below.
