ESA Plans Charity Programs For E3

Charity events for troops, the homeless and the American Red Cross will be part of E3's large format relaunch this June in Los Angeles, the Entertainment Software Association said today.

On hand will be the nonprofit military support group "Pro vs. GI Joe," an organization that pits professional athletes against military personnel in friendly video game competitions as a morale booster. There will be several stations in Pro vs. GI Joe's military tent at E3, where expo attendees can challenge troops to video game matches via the Web.

On a one per day basis, Pros vs. GI Joe will also host video game competitions between a pro or celebrity and local military personnel during E3, which takes place June 2-4.
