E3 will open to the public for the first time this year

For the first time ever, one of the largest gaming expos in the United States will be open to the public. This year, E3 has announced that they will finally be opening its doors to consumers, allowing fans to enjoy games and hardware months in advance.

According to the official E3 Twitter handle, the convention will be open to the public with passes going on sale starting February 13 at 12 pm ET / 9 pm PT. The pass will be valid for all three days and allow access to everything on the show floor. The first 1,000 tickets will be sold for $149 each, while the rest of the tickets will be offered for $249 each. There will a total of 15,000 tickets made available to the public.

This year's show should prove to be fairly exciting with a potential formal announcement of Microsoft's next console. Last year, the firm teased the upcoming console under the code-name 'Project Scorpio' and also listed some of its specifications. Hopefully this year, they will show the console in the flesh.
