ESA president rumored to be leaving

According to the video game blog Kotaku, Entertainment Software Association president Doug Lowenstein is likely to be stepping down, perhaps as early as Tuesday.

Kotaku speculates that Lowenstein--who has headed up ESA, which puts on E3, the Electronic Entertainment Expo--may be leaving the video game industry altogether.

In some ways, Lowenstein's departure, if it happens, makes sense. E3 is going to be deeply scaled back from the blow-out, ear-splitting mega-event it once was, and thus, the ESA may not need him as much.

Stay tuned for further details.
