London EG Expo queuer bags PSPgo

Visitors swamp Old Billingsgate building.

The Eurogamer Expo 2009 has landed in London and the queues outside the Old Billingsgate building on the Thames are immense. At the front stood Josh, 19, a student from Bristol. He woke up at 5am today to ensure he was in line at 8am, a whole three hours before the show.

For his dedication, Josh has bagged a brand new PSPgo, courtesy of Sony. He also received a t-shirt and copy of the brilliant Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, although he appeared to pass that to his friend. Chivalrous as well as punctual: a real catch.

"It's over 9000 out of 10," said Josh, describing his excitement for the EG Expo 2009. "It's a great opportunity to play all the new games. We read press previews all the time, now we get a chance to try them."

Pictures will follow.
