Xbox FanFest Gets New Registration Date and Details After Reboot Due to Overflow Issue

Microsoft announces the new registration details for Xbox FanFest.

A couple of days ago, Microsoft had to completely reset the registration process for the Xbox FanFest scheduled to kick off on June 11th parallel to E3, due to an issue that caused the site to accept many more participants than available tickets.

Today they came up with a new date. Registrations will go live on April 26th at 9 AM Pacific time, and this time it will be a single drop with all 400 available tickets.

Senior Global Product Marketing Manager Chris Munson also provided additional details.

Emails to those who managed to register during the first round, whose registrations got voided due to the problem, and likely to include some form of compensation, will be delivered in a couple of days.

The link for the registration will be provided directly on Wednesday at 9 AM, so you’ll have to be quick if you want to get your spot.

Unfortunately, we also learn that Microsoft won’t be able to see the order of those who registered in the first wave, since it was broken by the issue.

A credit card will still be required (but not charged, as tickets are free), as before.
