Advanced ticket sales for the upcoming Gamescom 2011
convention in Cologne, Germany are now on sale
, so if you're planning to be in the area then (or have the money and time to flit over to the continent whenever you want -- lucky duck), you can see the sights for just a few Euros. The cheapest day passes
, at just €6 ($9), are for students and senior citizens, while standard passes are around €10-15 ($14-21).
Note that these tickets are for the public -- they'll let you in the "entertainment area" of the show, but the business side of the event is only for trade and media attendees
. But that's no problem. You can still go over there and have yourself a big ol' partyzeit
anyway. The convention kicks off on August 17, 2011.
