E3 Is Hosting A Public Event, Here's How You Can Attend

E3 is notorious in the gaming world for being an exclusive event for high-end video game press, developers and publishers only. I remember watching highlights of E3 on TV and thinking I would do anything to go to that event one day. Well, with all of the anti-E3 events popping up like EA Play, E3 has finally decided to hit back with a public event of its own.

While it’s not the entirety of E3 that will be open to the public, it is something for the games-obsessed fans to take part in. E3 Live will be a special public event for those who aren’t qualified to attend the real E3 but still want to take part in some of the action that E3 has to offer.

There aren’t too many companies signed up yet for E3 Live just yet, but those who have signed up are:

  • Alienware
  • Facebook/Oculus
  • Frito-Lay
  • HTC Vive
  • Loot Crate
  • Monster
  • Twitch
  • Ubisoft
  • Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment

And if you want to sign up to attend E3 Live, you need to do it fast because tickets are free and first-come first-serve. You can sign up on E3 Live’s official website.

While I think it’s great E3 is trying to combat all of the side events that have been popping up in protest of E3, I think it’s just yet another diversion from E3 having to go entirely open and public. Because if E3 goes public, it becomes a whole other ball game. And I personally believe E3 is making a huge mistake in keeping E3 so exclusive and away from public reach. I think major game companies will keep breaking off and creating their own side events, especially if EA Play does well, and before you know it people will be attending those events rather than E3. The time for change is now.

Again, if you want to attend E3 Live, I highly advise you sign up quickly. Because even though there’s a minimal amount of companies attending right now, it will fill up. And E3 Live will be announcing a newer and updated list of attendees closer to the event, which hopefully will be more enticing.
