The video game industry continues to get bigger with each passing year. Literally billions of dollars are spent by people around the world every year on the latest games and consoles. The game companies also invest huge amounts of money in developing games that will attract the attention of people and get them interested in buying them. There are a wide variety of video game shows and conventions that are held for the purpose of giving video game companies a chance to show their latest products. The largest of these shows is called E3. It is held in Los Angeles every year. There will be a big change to E3 in 2017. It will be open to the public for the first time ever. Needless to say, gamers are very excited about the chance to play some of the most anticipated games months before they are able for the public to buy.
E3 has only been open to people in video game industry until this year. The people who organize E3 thought that including the public this year would be a good idea. The gamers who show up would be able to promote the games they play on social media. Therefore, they would be acting as a free promotional tool for the game makers. It remains to be seen which companies will have booths set up and which games will be available to be played. Some of the companies are being very secretive because they do not want details of their games being released before the show. The organizers have not said if the public will be allowed to attend E3 in future years.
Some of the video game companies will have contests at E3 which will give fans the chance to win some of their games. It remains to be seen what the contests will involve. There is certainly much more excitement around the E3 show than there has been in a long time.
