You’re Australian, and you have pined for E3. It’s where every developer and publisher excitedly announces they are pregnant with their upcoming babies; the games we have over the forthcoming years.
Okay, not the most eloquent analogy ever produced, but you get the point.
If you live in Oz, you aren’t exactly at the forefront of gaming, that is until this year.
You’re used to high cost games, late releases or sometimes none at all due to banning or ‘the market being too small’. Besides a few games like L.A. Noire, a game that sent Team Bondi into financial difficulty, you haven’t produced too many huge titles either. Your media has to travel the furthest to get to the world’s big game events.
But now EB Expo is this weekend on Australia’s sexy Gold Coast. The EB Games Expo 2011 is Australia’s first gaming event of this magnitude, and as media we will have some exclusive access to parts of it.
Try to contain your excitement, now! What? You aren’t going, live somewhere else, didn’t score a ticket or have a ravenous animal attacking you tomorrow morning?
