In addition to all of these big name games, there’s a new indie section – the Homegrown Gaming Zone. It’ll host eSports, Cosplay, local game developers and an assortment of gaming tech. There’s also the Gamer Gear Zone, packed with gaming gear (who knew?), gadgets, accessories and other “entertainment products” – and if you want something for the littl’uns, head to the Family Zone for fun activities and free entertainment.

But you’d better hop to it! Tickets for the EB Games Expo are flying out the door!

If you act fast, you might still be able to grab a General Admission and Gamer passes for the three days (Friday 5th October / Saturday 6th October / Sunday 7th October ), with Sunday Family passes also selling super-quick. To pick them up, just head to your local EB Games and ask nicely!
