In previous years, E3 has traditionally been closed off to the general public, reserved for members of the press and video game industry. Microsoft has done a great job in the past of making tickets available for Xbox fans via its Xbox FanFest events.
Despite E3 being open to the public this year, Microsoft will still be holding its FanFest event, giving Xbox fans a unique opportunity to attend its press briefing, check out Project Scorpio, and obtain tons of free swag. Today, Larry Hryb aka Major Nelson has offered details about the event in 2017, shedding light on a ticketing system that will be used in response to feedback received.
As with previous events, participants will need to be 21 years of age or older and possess an Xbox Live gamertag. While distributing tickets in the past has been a bit of mixed bag, this year, the system will be updated using an online portal, where those interested can register for a ticket.
The distribution of these tickets will start at 6am on April 19 and will be on a first-come, first-serve basis. The tickets will be given out all day, so you'll want to stay glued to Twitter and follow @Xbox for the latest information. Although there will be no charge for the ticket, a cancelation fee will apply, thus requiring a credit card to be put on file.
