E3 GRcade Traffic Prediction Contest

Typically, E3 is when the forum has its busiest traffic. Can you guess how many forumites will be online at the start of each of the 3 main conferences?

I will take the measurements at 5 minutes into each conference.

As a guide, 206 people (including guests) were online 5 minutes into the Microsoft pre-E3 conference on 20th February earlier this year.

Please make 3 guesses. How many forumites will be online for:


Microsoft (Monday) at 5:35pm -
Sony (Tuesday) at 2:05am -
Nintendo Direct (Tuesday) at 3:05pm -


I will only accept guesses for each individual conference up to a deadline of one hour before each conference starts, so 4:30pm today for Microsoft, 1am tomorrow morning for Sony, and 2pm Wednesday for Nintendo. There will be no exceptions to this ruling.

Mockmaster. Any chance you can tell us how many on were online for the PS4 reveal just so we got a point of reference?

But easily Microsoft will have the most as it will be shown at UK hometime. I say 327 for MS.

Unfortunately I do not have that data to hand, but I recall it was around a similar number.
