Well we will hopefully have some pretty exciting news about a Q&A panel to announce very soon.
We are also in the latter stages of agreeing a deal with a new partner that would provide us with a superb driving games set up as well as other things.

As I am on here a bit less at the mo you could sign up to our Twitter or Facebook to get the latest updates.

A throwaway comment on facebook from a friend about his Megadrive collection for PS3 led to me mentioning r3play, and that's caused 5 people I don't know to be interested in attending :)

Wondered therefore why you had an advert for the event also in the back pages then. Presumably it was free!

Nothing is free in this life Shaun, you should know that ;)
We have adverts in GamesTM and Retro Gamer for 6 months. No one seemed to notice them in the last issue of both mags.

I noticed them, but I don't think it's helping that they share a page with another ad with a black background, as it doesn't really stand out...

It's still possible for me to go to this, but I won't know until October. Would that be too late to arrange a jaunt down there and get entry?
