    According to the gamescom site it’s not meant to be open until the 18th, even to the media/press. Is their site wrong? Or is this leaked info or something? (media 18th public 19th-22nd http://www.gamescom.de/en/gamescom/fuer_alle/termine_oeffnungszeiten/gamescom_termine.php )

    His role on the team: “dude who stands next to press people at photo opp and talks up new product.”

    It’s verry demanding on his time, he may have to give up his football career.
