It may be worth mentioning that in previous years, the gaming section was on the opposite end of the floor and had a greater presence. On the other hand, 2013 has more game-oriented PANELS.

Might just be the publishers didn't want to pay the premium for proper floor space, seeing as how they don't have a ton of stuff to show to the public. That said, SDCC has always been focused on a different side of the nerdy entertainment industry, which also shifts in popularity year on year. Example: Some con-goers complain that mainstream TV/movies are taking too much focus nowadays. Gaming has a larger presence in recent years than before, on the show floor, but you're still only going to see the industry juggernauts like Microsoft, PlayStation, and Capcom. $$$$$ and resources, etc.

Space is also a huge problem. As such, you will see a lot of game companies rent space in the surrounding Gaslamp District -- hotel ballrooms, being the most common. SEGA always has an off-site arcade, BioWare always has a lounge (with games), etc. Xbox has one this year featuring some new games.

It's always changing, though. Should be interesting to see how the floor looks next year with next-gen stuff.
