    EliteCon bans cosplay from their event

    EliteCon bans cosplay from their event
    EliteCon in Tampa, Florida, which is promoting itself as "A Premium Collectibles Event for Advanced Collectors", has banned people from attending their convention in costume. Although the ban is not mentioned on their web site and previously appeared only as "no cosplay" on some promotional advertising on some of their Facebook posts months ago, their March 5th Facebook update has attracted the attention of many cosplayers and prompted hundreds of responses.

    The post says, "Just one week to Elite Con so a quick reminder in case you missed it along the way, there is no cosplay allowed at Elite Con. We appreciate cosplay but we want to keep the focus on the collectibles for our event. Thank you in advance for your adherence to this policy!"

    Many responses seemed confused by the decision not to allow costumes. One commenter said, "Woooow OK obviously you don't want many hardcore collectors to be there then. I collect collectibles, especially of the characters I cosplay. What a way to disregard a wide demographic of consumers. #GeekDiscrimination"

    Another thought it might be a joke. "Wait... What? No cosplay at a convention? You're kidding, right? I mean, it is a bit early for an April fool's joke."

    Someone else made a play on the convention's name saying, "That sounds very elitist, and not in a good way."

    Earlier today, Elite Con posted in response to the outcry from cosplayers. "Hello, we are well aware that this rule is not desirable to some collectors, however the intention of this post was not to argue the merits for or against having cosplay at our...

    E3 2017 will be open to the public

    E3 2017 will be open to the public

    The Entertainment Software Association, the managing organization behind E3, has announced today that it will sell 15,000 consumer passes to E3 2017 on February 13th. Passes will be priced at $249 each with the first 1,000 selling for $149.

    Starting as the Electronic Entertainment Expo in 1995, E3 has always presented the event as one for professionals in the video game industry. By 2006, it had expanded to include bloggers and others who were not perceived to be "industry professionals" and the ESA announced that E3 2007 would become an invitation-only event. In 2009, E3 reverted to the show's previous format.

    This is the first time that the ESA has made E3 open to the general public. With a reported attendance of 50,300 people in 2016, the name recognition of the convention, and the popularity of the convention among video game professionals and those that follow video game news, it is expected that the 15,000 passes will sell out almost immediately.

    E3 will be held June 13-15, 2017 at the Los Angeles Convention...
