About Play Expo 2012
Play Expo is the only UK video games expo catering for all gamers and all forms of games. The show will consist of four core gaming zones:
- now.play – latest releases and previews for Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, PC and handheld. Confirmed exhibitors include EA, Nintendo, Konami and Namco Bandai. Nintendo will be giving visitors a preview of the new Wii U console, while EA will showcase the new Need For Speed and Medal of Honor games.
- re.play – freeplay arcade and pinball machines, retro consoles and vintage computers – over 400 classic systems covering the entire history of gaming will be available for visitors to enjoy.
- pro.play – a competitive eSports event featuring pro gaming tournaments on popular titles like FIFA, Call of Duty and many more.
- cos.play – A celebration of Japanese culture, including costume role play masquerades, talks, anime and manga.
There will be a variety of talks by personalities from the games industry throughout the weekend along with tournaments, demonstrations and giveaways.
Play Expo spokesperson, Gordon Sinclair said: “There is great demand from gamers for a show outside of London and from our experience, we know there is appetite for Replay’s unique approach. In fact, we surveyed previous attendees to our shows and found that 96% said they wanted this type of event and that they would be very likely to attend. With that kind of support, we are confident that this huge step forward will be a successful one for both us and our exhibitors.”
Play Expo will be able to comfortably accommodate 10,000 consumers over the two days. In addition, Play Expo is in partnership with eSports provider EGL, which will stream the expo to up to 500,000 worldwide viewers.
