Game On for Edinburgh

Videogames exhibition goes to Royal Museum in Scotland

With its run at the Barbican Gallery in London set to end on September 15th, the Game On exhibition will be moving up to Scotland for the remainder of the year. The show, which covers 40 years of videogames history from Pong and Space War to the Xbox and GameCube, will be taking over the Royal Museum in Edinburgh between October 18th and February 2nd before a possible overseas tour. As well as the wide range of classic games that were included in the exhibition during its stay in London, new goodies including a playable demo of Tomb Raider: Angel Of Darkness will be added to the original line-up, and the museum will also be hosting a conference during November looking at the potential use of computer games as an educational tool.
