The Entertainment Software Association, the people responsible for organizing E3 every announced today that for the first time ever 15,000 tickets will be made available to the general public. For those outside the industry that want to attend the biggest week in video games, tickets go on sale this Monday, February 13th.

I hope you enjoy E3 as much as Terry Crews

 

Tickets are priced at $250 or $150 for early birds on the 13th. Passes will grant you access the show floor as well as panel discussions. Fans have wanted access to E3 for years, and in 2016 they chose to test the waters and gauge interest by having “E3 live” a free event open to the general public and filled with Doritos and shame. This event was located outside of the Los Angeles Convention Center where E3 is held. This time, however, fans can finally make it inside for a price.

  1. I’ve always thought E3 should go public, though I imagine it will be a nightmare to those used to going now that the public will add to the lines and chaos. Either way, excited to see how this pans out!
