Last year we went to EB Games Expo that was held on the Gold Coast (Queensland, Australia) and enjoyed ourselves immensely. We checked out the newest games, spoke to the big developers and listened to gamers talking about games! We've also been invited this year's event and it's going to be a lot closer for me because it's in Sydney!
This year, EB Games Expo will be held across three days (5th October - 7th October) at Sydney Showground and EB Games tells us over fifteen thousand tickets have already been sold - but there's still a few more tickets unsold - so get them before they're gone! Over twenty-five thousand square metres will be filled with the latest hardware, consoles, software, games, devices and anything that relates to gaming.
EB Games showed us what the Sony stand is going look like, and it looks amazing!
There's a huge list of playable games from the big names:
Special mention is to be directed towards the playable Call of Duty: Black Ops II game. You'll be able to brag to your friends that you've played the latest Activision franchise five weeks before it is due to be released in Australia.
For the live adrenaline junkies, EB Arena will showcase pyrotechnics, motocross and stunt shows. Last year, we saw three motorbikes doing crazy stunts in the middle of a stage! There will also be an area to house the competitive gamers. ESWC has chosen EB Games Expo as the location for the Starcraft 2 Qualifiers. There will also be the best League of Legends teams competing as well!
EB Games are confidently saying that this year's EB Games Expo "WILL be the biggest gaming experience Australia has EVER seen." We're going to have to agree with them there.
Look out for our upcoming article in three weeks!
