But they probably won’t be able to! At least, not today. The show opened at 10:00am, but Capcom soon closed the line. There are no more demo slots available today.

The sign in the top pic says the line closed at 10:15am, but apparently, there was already enough early admission people before the doors opened, that the line was closed the moment the general public was allowed in.

Sony also has a huge Monster Hunter: World display at its booth, which was swarmed with folks hoping to check out the game.

But soon after the doors opened, the line for Monster Hunter: World was closed for the day, because all the demo time slots had been given out.
