The Entertainment Software Association (ESA) has announced a record attendance figure for E3 2013 and dated next year's show.
48,200 game industry professionals, analysts, journalists and retailers from 102 countries visited the LA Convention Center this week for gaming's largest annual event, which will be held in the same venue next year from June 10-12.
E3 2013's attendance figure surpassed the previous record of 45,700 set last year.
Around 230 exhibitors showcased their gaming wares at the event, which the ESA said generated almost $40 million in revenue for LA.
ESA CEO Michael Gallagher commented: "This year's E3 showcased the best that our industry has to offer and channeled the immense energy, drive, and enthusiasm for video games onto a global stage.
"Thanks to our members and exhibitors' boundless capacity for innovation, billions of consumers are seeing the future of our industry through this outstanding landscape of creativity, technology and content."
