    Queue

    The only reason i would queue that long is that i knew at the end i would walk into a room full of completely naked female models showing off the consoles whilst others fed me Pringles and Coke.

    Thats crazy, I bet the people at the end didn't know what they were queuing for and that rumours were rife that they were infact giving away a free DS to everybody that played one :p

    The expo is open only to game industry professionals, celebrities and journalists who are over eighteen. - From wikipedia

    Its really crap because its the sorta thing Id love to go to but I guess thats what a lot of gamers think, so must be why its not open to the public.

    Leaves two options get in the industry or become a celebrity...

    You think the entire industry media are Nintendo fanboys? [​IMG]

    Grow up... the long lines couldn't be down to people being intrigued and wanting to play the new console... or could they? ;)

    You have to be connected to get them.

    Not just anyone can buy a ticket.

    I could qualify for going to e3, shame it's on at the worst time (always around exams) and there's no way I could afford to fly to LA.

    You need to provide proof of employment.. Via the US equivilant of a P45 sort of thing and some kind of credit statement.

    And your employer will be verified by them. Although it was FREE for me (media have to pay no matter what) to go so long as you get your tickets before the 7th of April. So i only had to pay fopr accomodation and travel, which also went on company expenses :)
