I read somewhere that you need to be a member of the game industry to attend E3 - it's not open to the public. I was wondering if being a member of G.A.N.G. is sufficient. I won't be going this year, but for future knowledge. Thanks everyone. :D

Joining GANG won't qualify you for the industry unless you have a formal title within gang (like webmaster or administrative director etc) - or if you're close to the board or Tommy, he can get you a pass :) But it requires some persistent bugging.

The easiest way to register for E3 (and not exactly easy ) Is to register a business within the state and use the Tax ID number you get to show you're legit etc when presenting credentials, along with copies of a website or some commercial advertisement for the company. Sure that's effort, but it's also something worth doing if you ever plan on selling your services, right? :)

Thanks Jay,
Okay, there is a bit of work there, but I'm currently at the point in my career that I thought I would have to get a friend of a friend of a _____(noun) to get me a job as a janitor at _____(game company) to get into E3, but I think your idea would be better. Thanks. :)
