The March 30th event for Final Fantasy XV has officially sold out, according to ticket vendor Showclix. Granted, the tickets were free, but it's still an impressive accomplishment for a single videogame event. It was mentioned on the January 30th ATB Report that the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California can seat around six thousand people and if even a third of that amount booked tickets, the event is going to be beastly in size and attendance.

In person. Thanks for playing, everyone, see you when this game finally comes out.
