E3 was public way back but it got out of hand wasn't it? I could be wrong but I thought it was. Regardless, as an industry person I find that even now it's already a total gong show. I'm all for allowing some of the fans back because after all without them what would be the point, but it definitely needs to be regulated pretty carefully lest E3 become another PAX with borderline unmanageable crowds.

limiting to 4-5k fans wont be too impactful overall...but I am guessing media folks going to attend are not thrilled.

Yeah, honestly it makes our jobs harder. Working at a Nintendo-based website, I get to cut most lines for Ninty stuff, but it's going to be really challenging to see games on other platforms. I write for a smaller Playstation site as well, and it's going to be damn near impossible to see some of Ubisoft/Bethesda/EA/Square titles without waiting in line for hours.

That's a yes/no type thing really. I might not enjoy the more crowded halls but at the end of the day I have appointments for everything so I don't anticipate any extra waiting on my part.

It was then I think the new consoles or something were announced in 2008 and 70k+ people decided to go and that's when E3 started limiting attendance to around 50k.

That convention center is way too small for any bigger crowds.

You mean my invite wasn't a joke or mistake?!

dammit

The publishers are like "we arent paying the developers enough money to make games, and we really dont want to" oh heres an idea! Lets give them these extra tickets to E3 that can be sold for a 1000 bucks, that way the consumers pay the developers instead! Yaay win win for everybody yaay
lol
Not that im complaining, but i should be.

Kalebninja931d ago

Hopefully this is a gateway to letting consumers outright purchase tickets. I'd definitely go next year if they did.

Thatguy-310931d ago

Exactly! I'm all for purchasing tickets like the Playstation experience event. Publishers can sell tickets for people to have access to the conference and game booths.
