Gamescom continues to kick butt and take names – 370,000 of them, in fact.
That’s how many people showed up in Cologne to attend Europe’s biggest gaming event of the year. As GIbiz notes, that’s a record for the event. In fact, the number of people descending on the Koelnmesse has actually become a bit of a problem; apparently, even the event’s CEO has admitted the “quality of stay” at the event “wasn’t always assured this year,” such that organizers are working on improvements for next year.
“In consultation with our partner Game and the exhibitors, we will develop and implement measures for the further optimisation of the quality of stay following this year’s gamescom,” she promised.
There won’t be much of a lull between the last big thing and the next big thing either: PAX West in Seattle formally begins this Friday.
