The beating heart of PLAY Expo Manchester is the retro zone and this year will be our biggest ever display with over 300 playable consoles and computers in three massive zones.

Our brand new ‘gaming library‘ will contain 100 machines with a library of over 250 of the very best games from the past 15 years. Simply browse and find your favourite game, check out the disc at the desk, find a console and play away!
I wonder what the thinking behind the library thing is? People been nicking games?
I read that as 300 old systems, 100 of which are post 2000, the library is for post 2000 stuff.

I might go on the Sunday.

I'm not really in the right frame of mind for an event at the minute & it's my daughter's birthday too.

However, I don't want to miss Kevin Toms.

I'll probably decide on the morning.

I got on the bus in an OJ Simpson costume once. Nobody batted an eyelid.

Oh! on another note, I've just noticed that Rock Band will be featuring on the Cosplay Stage! Does that mean I need to throw a costume together to go on stage and play? You can't beat a bit of Rock Band karaoke lol :lol:

Glad to hear the retro area is huge this year, I was a bit let down by it last year
