Sony get Experienced

More details on ECTS consumer hall

ECTS 2002 is just a couple of weeks away now, and in a break from tradition the venue will be welcoming gamers with open arms this year. Sony will be running a consumer show dubbed The PlayStation Experience alongside the main trade event, allowing all you hoi polloi to get a look at forthcoming releases. Here you will find a range of top PlayStation 2 games from the likes of Sony, Electronic Arts, Eidos, Konami and Activision, including The Getaway, Tony Hawk's 4, Red Faction 2, Pro Evolution Soccer 2 and the next Tomb Raider. Meanwhile Sony will be showing off the PS2's network capabilities with Auto Modellista and their own military action game Hardware Network Technology. There's even a few PSOne titles hidden away in dark corners, not to mention a "Linux Zone". Although the games are the stars of the show, there's also a "lifestyle" component to the event [stop cringing at the back there - Ed] centered around a stage which will play host to Xfm DJs, Emma B, breakdancers and inline skaters amongst other strange people. Details are fairly scant, but there is a little more information (if you can read the Flash-ridden text before it vanishes off the screen) on the official PlayStation Experience website. Tickets for the event are priced at £9 each, and the hall will be open to the public from 9am to 8pm (minus a one hour early afternoon lunch break) between August 29th and 31st.
