Tickets go on sale July 16th for the showcase of Activision's powerhouse franchise, entry coming with a cost of $150 for both days, September 2nd and 3rd. Only those 18 and older are allowed through the door. What does $150 get you these days? A little marketing in the form of a sneak peek at the upcoming Modern Warfare 3, press conference access, keynotes, developer chat, a shot to play paintball on a recreation of an in-game map, and a chance at $1 million in a multiplayer tournament. Plus, the company is planning a live music show by an unspecified band.
Details are still up in the air, including location. The sign-up website simply says "Los Angeles Area, CA," which is a little vague to say the least. Wherever it happens, this Microsoft co-sponsored showcase will need to fit 6,000 eager gamers because that's how many tickets will be sold.
That said, do you want to pay $150 to play with some of the people you meet online, like this guy who had to apologize this week for his behavior?
