People came to this year's Tokyo Game Show. In droves. The event's organizers have released the final tallies, and they are: 194,288 attendees for TGS 2008 compared to 193,040 attendees for TGS 2007. Those interested in the breakdown, hit the jump. Those not, don't.Tokyo Game Show 2008 10/9 Business Day 27,305 attendees 10/10 Business Day 24,178 attendees 10/11 Public Day 71,639 attendees (included: 9,207 kids) 10/12 Public Day 71,166 attendees (included: 13,963 kids) TOTAL: 194,288 attendees Tokyo Game Show 2007 10/9 Business Day 29,783 attendees 10/10 Business Day 32,390 attendees 10/11 Public Day 64,795 attendees (included: 11,829 kids) 10/12 Public Day 66,072 attendees (included: 15,347 kids) TOTAL: 193,040 attendees So fewer kids this year and more press last year. Fascinating.
Wait, this isn't 194k unique visitors, unless I'm missing something, a lot of people did went for more then one day, didn't they? I know the guy covering the event for this blog my friend and I are running (shameless plug ends here, without a link), went at least, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
So how does this works?
