    For reference, after 2007/2008 (the downsized Santa Monica disaster) E3 can only manage ranges of 45,000-50,000 (down from E3’s 2005 peak of 75,000)

    It is quite good that TGS has public days. E3 should have something similar.

    What a shame Konami felt the need to repeat the same exact presentation four times in a row

    Also, isn’t E3 closed for general audiences? TGS seems much more casual and more focused on actual games rather than the marketing of games and the companies making the games.

    Wait, did they really do the same presentation every day? Why bother?

    Only the last two days are open to the public at TGS.

    Yes, the article implies that, but E3 is closed to the public throughout the whole event, right?
