E3 is fast approaching, and it seems every company is doing their own spin on the event; Nintendo will be hosting an all-day Zelda U livestream, while Activision has decided against having a booth on the show floor. And when the folks at Microsoft announced their E3 conference earlier this month, they also mentioned that there would be a repeat of last year’s Xbox FanFest.
Just like last year, only 500 fans will be granted tickets to the event, but there are a few caveats. First, you have to be 21 years and you have to have an Xbox Live gamertag. Second, to actually get the ticket, you have to go to the Microsoft store at Westfield Century City in Los Angeles starting on Saturday, June 11th at 10:00 PM PDT, with tickets going to the first 500 people in line.
If you manage to acquire one of the
golden tickets, you will be treated to a 3-day event, from the 13th of June to the 15th, and you will receive a “custom-built backpack full of gaming swag,” access to Microsoft’s E3 briefing, an invitation to a special Forza Motorsport event, and a “Fan Celebration” event on the evening of June 14th.
However, Microsoft has plenty in store of the majority of people who won’t be attending the event. Xbox Daily: LIVE @ E3 will be on air both the 14th and the 15th of June, and Geoff Keighley will be hosting an Xbox Briefing Post-Show Special on the 13th following Microsoft’s press conference.
