In February it was announced that E3 would be opening its doors to the general public for the first time. The tickets then went on sale on February 13th and have been available for the past few months. The organizers of E3 have now announced that the public tickets have completely sold out.
There were 15,000 tickets made available to fans for the first time ever this year. However, the organizers of the event have now announced that all of these fan passes have officially sold out.
The official E3 Twitter page posted this revelation online yesterday. The tickets for the event were being sold at $250 each, but despite the high price, tickets have completely sold out.
