    27TH - 30TH

    So its the first year for XboxPlayers to attend this event and even though its early we already have a few members that will have press access and will be at the event. As the show is over 4 days the first 2 consist of mainly the developer sessions (including the careers, education, tools and services areas) which will and also a community party in conjunction with Stick Twiddlers on the Saturday evening.

    So hopefully we will be planning a big meet for all of Xboxplayers

    Here's what to expect at the show:

    • Hands-on gaming on console, PC and handhelds
    • Indie Games Arcade
    • Retro Zone
    • Developer Sessions
    • Tournaments
    • Cosplay
    • Community meet-ups and parties
    • The GamesIndustry Fair including careers and education
    • ...and more!



    At the moment I would suggest a meet on the Saturday would be the best idea but at the moment we will be waiting on the announcement as to when our other members would get in with press event as they would have more access than what we would have. The current ticket is entry from 11am till 7pm and costs £10. I'm hoping we can get confirmed of the Saturday ASAP as Early access tickets have already sold out of their allocations for all days. As it will be a long day and members like myself will be travelling from far and wide I would suggest a stop over in a b&b or hotel. The sooner everything is confirmed I would recommend that booking is done well in advance of train/accommodation or any other costs that you may incur on your journey.

    Great piece of info there Sniper thanks, we have applied for our press passes over the Friday and Saturday for the event.

    My advice to everyone would be to get tickets for the Saturday of the event as Xbox players will be in attendance for a players meet up as well as general browsing.
    The Friday we have applied for is strictly website press work which we will be looking to get our interviews and inside scoops to publish on the site.

    A couple of members went to last years event and thoroughly enjoyed it.

    As our first year as a site that is expanding and growing at a steady rate at present our main aim is to get involved and find out more about what we will and will not be able to achieve bearing in mind that at present this is a 2nd job for both me and Pete.

    Rest assured we will do everything we can to get the best access possible and all the info our brains and phones can handle.

    Hope to have a good following for the event though.
