Gamescom Was Huuuuuuuuuuuge This Year
Are you one of those Amurcans who wonders why the hell a convention in Europe would be such a big deal? Well, I’m going to explain to you, in no uncertain terms, just why Gamescom is a big deal. Here it is: 275,000 people attended this year’s show, up from last year’s 254,000.
That’s huge! Seriously, that’s a hell of a lot of people; a lot more than will attend PAX Prime this weekend, certainly, and that’s considered one of the biggest games gatherings in North America. And not only was Gamescom huge, but it grew. That’s just crazy.
In other news, 557 exhibitors from 40 countries were on hand at the show. God, this is nuts. Never underestimate the power of Gamescom.
