:: note to self, get part time job at gamestop prior to E3 next year to get a pass and then quit :::

Basically...You get into the show floor for free, but nothing else. Thats all I cared about, I could have gotten the other packages aswell for being a developer but I couldn't afford the loss of time at work, Im not getting paid for going to E3.

BTW, Working at Gamespot or EB part-time probably wont get you in since the company needs to give E3Expo the "ok" when E3Expo calls them up looking for verification that you work there. I know the only reason I got to go when I worked at EB was because I was management, part-timers weren't allowed to go. Could have changed now though...

Parallax mapping will be in the expansion pack. I don't think that they will add that effect to the original game with a patch. Therefore it's now too late.

How did you get your GF to go, She in the industry aswell? There are no guests allowed, every person attending must be part of the industry one way or another, no bring a guest thing...

My friend wanted to go but he couldn't since he doesn't work in the industry (Teacher).

You need someone to take care of your girl while you're gone?

All I sent them was a paystub, my card, and a copy of our flyer. They never called, or asked any other questions. I got my pass.

I guess if you are good enough with photoshop.. you could get anyone in..lol

As far as working in the industry, you don't even have to be involved with selling/producing games. Even if you work in the computer hardware industry (me ) you can still get a pass.
