This year’s E3 will be a big one for Nintendo, courtesy of the Nintendo Switch and its game library, but it will be an even bigger one for E3 itself. This is because the Entertainment Software Association, which organizes E3 every year, has announced that the show will be open to the public for the very first time. According to the ESA, 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. We will be learning more on E3’s public plans in the coming weeks, when the ESA plans to announce more details.
