The E3 video game conference comes to LA next week

The Electronic Entertainment Expo is the mecca for all video gamers, tech geeks and electronics enthusiasts. Better known as E3, the conference kicks off on June 15th in Los Angeles and boasts major competition between electronic masterminds Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo. Though plagued by the economic downturn, gaming hardware makers hope the slew of new devices, games, and consoles will boost the $11 billion industry. Halo 3? So last year.
