EG Expo 2009 London queue heroes

Thousands stampede in. Tickets on sale.

The last and biggest day of the Eurogamer Expo 2009 is underway in London, with 2175 visitors stampeding past reception in the first hour this morning.

Jonathan and Alex and Mystery Man, pleased as punch.

Johnathan Salisbury, 26, from London, was first in line, and had been since 5am. He arrived just 10 minutes before Alex Hamlin, 21, from France but living in London. The pair had been "talking about games" for six hours, they told us.

For their outrageous punctuality they were each awarded a copy of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, as was a third, mysterious queuer. The queue was also subjected to a bout of shouting, as were the Leeds EG Expo 2009 attendees. London, we have to say, was louder. Well done!

Tickets are on sale on the door for £6 apiece. Check out our London Eurogamer Expo 2009 gallery for shots of the bulging queue and the lucky visitors first in the door.
