Eurogamer Expo opens to crowds in London

Hundreds of gamers queue to be first to play games from Ubisoft, Valve and Sega

The Eurogamer Expo has opened its doors in London following a sold out two day outing in Leeds.

Gamers began queuing three hours ahead of the expo's opening, keen to play upcoming games from publishers including EA, Ubisoft and Capcom.

High on their priority lists were Assassin's Creed 2, Army of Two: The 40th Day, Left 4 Dead 2 and Aliens Versus Predator, and many of the consumers queuing for entry to the event stated they own two or more consoles.

First to set foot inside the expo was student Josh Fall who'd travelled from Bristol for the event and was awarded a PSPgo for his troubles. "I'm looking forward to all of the games to be honest," he said, "but particularly Star Trek Online."

Gamer Rosemary Bridger, who travelled from Portsmouth for the event, said there were lots of games at the expo she wanted to play but especially Army of Two, Mass Effect 2 and AvP. She owns all of the games platforms, she said, including two PSPs and two Xbox 360s.

Over 4000 gamers are expected through the doors of the two day London event. As well as a long line-up of new and pre-release titles available for consumers to play, there will be developer sessions held by Chet Faliszek of Valve, Guillaume Voghel and Alex Hutchinson of EA Montreal and David Cage of Quantic Dream.
