E3 now open to public!

Our beloved gaming convention is no longer invite only. Today the Entertainment Software Association, announced that a fans can now buy their way into the convention. Starting February 13th tickets can be bought for $250, for anyone who can get to it fast enough, pre-sales are available for $150, but availability is low.

This is an interesting move on E3’s part due to their previous exclusivity. Now the only question is why bother opening to the public, surely the press passes being at almost a thousand dollars is enough to support the event. Maybe E3 is trying to have more transparency between the viewers and the events or maybe they are just succumbing to the peer pressure of other events to be open.
