ESA has published the schedule for this year's "down-scaled" E3 in Santa Monica, and it's looking like pretty much the same carnival act we've been used to seeing in previous years.
Microsoft will kick off events with an hour-long conference on July 10 at 8:30pm - perhaps minus The Killers and free-booze if E3 is indeed saving the pennies.
Nintendo will follow the next day with its bash at 9am, followed as always by Sony Computer Entertainment at 11:30am. Electronic Arts, Activison and others will have their own briefings that afternoon.
Venues for the platform holder conferences are yet to be revealed, but the third party briefings are due to go down at the Starlight Ballroom in the Fairmont Hotel.
