E3 2017 Open to The Public

It has been announced that this year’s big E3 show will be open to the public. An allotment of 15,000 tickets will be made available for anyone to buy on February 13th. The tickets are priced at $250, but an early bird discount that begins on February 13th means that they will only cost $150 for the time being. There will be consumer passes, media passes, and industry passes. The tickets give attendees access to the show floor, panel discussions, and other events. Sounds pretty nifty (and pricey) to us.

E3 2017 takes place from June 13-15th. What do you guys think?
