With so much attention surrounding the new PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, any chance to get hands-on experience can make or break the sale of the console.
With technology becoming more advanced in PS4 and Xbox One, as well as the consoles becoming a one stop shop for all games and movies, the attendance for these events far surpasses previous years. According to Gamer Network, 70,000 gamers will visit the Eurogamer Expo this year, causing them to take out extra space to accommodate such a large crowd. As usual, the Eurogamer Expo will feature developer sessions and tournaments, as well as several playable games. The list includes but is not limited to:
- Battlefield 4
- Assassins Creed IV: Black Flag
- Batman: Arkham Origins
- The Crew
- Elder Scrolls Online
- FIFA 14
This expo also includes a retro showcase, multiple indie developers and something I am personally excited for, Oculus Rift. Tis said to be the future of gaming which includes hands-on as well. More will be announced over the next two months.
The Eurogamer Expo 2013 will be held at Earls Court, London, Thursday September 26th through Sunday the 29th. Tickets are all sold out for the weekend, but if you want a chance to get your hands on the latest in gaming technology, tickets are still available for that Thursday and Friday. The PS4 is expected to be released during the holiday season 2013.
