Gamer expo heads to Earl's Court

This year's Eurogamer Expo will be held at London's Earl's Court and will give hardcore gamers the chance to get hands-on experience with new and soon-to-be-released titles on all platforms.

The show's organisers say that they are increasing the capacity to 20,000 but that the punter to console ration will be as good, if not better, than recent events.

Running from the 1st to the 3rd of October, the gathering of gamers will also feature developer sessions at which visitors can quiz the great and good of the gaming industry about how they do what they do.

In the past, Eurogamer has also held an event in Leeds for our gaming friends oop north and the decision to stick with just the London show has angered many.

"Bringing an event such as this to Leeds last year was a great idea and you were highly commended for it. So why change it? Why become the sheep and not the shepherd by following every other Expo event and sticking to London?," said one angry commenter.

"Are Londoners afraid of a little bit of travelling? Get back up north and you make it a more central event for all people across the whole of the UK," remarked another.

Last year's sell-out show had developer sessions from David Cage previewing Heavy Rain and Chet Faliszek from Valve showing off Left 4 Dead 2.

Details of exhibitors haven't been nailed down yet but Eurogamer promises to post regular updates on its website.
