E3 is Opening to the Public. Will This Ruin the Expo? | Tony’s Take
E3 has always been a press-only event. Now, it is being fully opened up to the public. 15,000 fans will be allowed to purchase tickets to the event and get to try out all of the games.
This is certainly a good thing for regular folks, but what about the media that covers the event? Will the quality of E3 reporting suffer because mid-level journalists will have a harder time covering games? This installment of Tony’s Take lays down the pros and cons of making E3 public. It also suggests a solution to this situation that would work for both sides.
