GameSpot is reporting
that ESA president Douglas Lowenstein has confirmed that E3 2007 will now take place in July.
After the announcement of its downsizing
, GameSpot contributes an anonymous analyst saying that the new E3 will "give publishers more time to polish their holiday releases. Publishers apparently weren't pleased at rushing their schedules to have late-year releases ready for the show each May."
Now the summer drought problem is solved thanks to the kinder, gentler E3.
