Wow, 250,000 @ Gamescom? That's an insane amount, I thought E3 was way bigger.

Just wait until next years, it shall be massive. But to be honest, I am surprised by the turnout at the TGS, at least the Tokyo Game Industry is still growing strong.

There are some interesting comparison figures in this article. Then again, numbers don't tell the whole story. E3 and TGS may have fewer visitors than Gamescom but they definitely carry more prestige. They certainly generate more anticipation in the run up.

This is 100 % true, this is also why devs announce their games most of the time at E3.

I wish there was a show as big as E3 or TGS in the UK, i know it would be a huge hit, well with me anyway :D

We have the Eurogamer Expo which is growing every year. It doesn't offer much in the way of big announcements but it's a good chance to get hands-on with all the upcoming games. It's always growing so maybe in a few years we'll see some UK publishers/devs start to make some big announcements there. Otherwise, the Eurogamer Expo is pretty good.
