This year's E3 conference saw 48,200 attendees from 102 countries, a 5.5 per cent increase on 2012's 45,700.

"This year's E3 showcased the best that our industry has to offer and channelled the immense energy, drive, and enthusiasm for video games onto a global stage," said ESA CEO Michael D. Gallagher.

"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."

According ESA estimates the 230 exhibitors attracted enough people to fill 28,000 total hotel room nights and to earn $40 million for LA.

ESA also revealed that E3 2014 will take place June 10-12 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

This years E3 was massive. The vibe was brilliant and the products and games on show really highlighted the quality present in our industry. While last year's E3 might have had people doubting, these year's outing was simply stunning.
