CES videogame show is back this week

Bit by bit, the expanding universe of digital entertainment will soon come together in Southern Nevada. And this year, that universe promises to be bigger than ever, even if the products driving its popularity have become smaller and smaller. This week’s return of the International Consumer Electronics Show will bring together more than 2,500 exhibiting companies and 140,000 attendees from 100-plus countries.

All are interested in a videogames industry that generates $122 (€102.6/£70.5) billion in annual sales, according to the Consumer Electronics Association, the show’s organizer. Las Vegas’ largest annual trade show runs Thursday through Sunday at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Sands Expo and Convention Center, Las Vegas Hilton, Alexis Park and Renaissance Hotel. Here’s to hoping there’ll be some fun game announcements those days.
