[Event] Play Expo 2013 (Manchester, 12th & 13th October)

Event-Play-Expo-2013-Manchester-12th-13th-OctoberThe UK's biggest retro gaming event is back! Replay Events have just announced that Play Expo is once again due to take place later this year in the same spacious venue, Manchester's Event City. If last year's exhibition was anything to go by, this is one date in your calendar you don't want to miss.

Although Replay Events have not announced anything other than the event's date and location, we're very much certain that the British retro gaming community is currently celebrating. Last year's event featured countless systems to enjoy, arcade and pinball machines on free-play, and of course competitions hosted by yours truly.

Tickets are not on sale as of yet, however, Replay Events have suggested you sign up to their email newsletter to find out as soon as they are.

RetroCollect be attending in force and very much looking forward to meeting you all. Why not join our event page and let the retro gaming community know you'll be making an appearance in October at Event City.

Lets hope this year will be more arcades and less MW3 tournaments. i did enjoy the darkstalkers and metal gear stands though.

Either way many hours of fun, i cant wait!

Shall be there again! Will make a huge effort to meet you all properly this time instead of seeing something shiny and heading off in that direction instead

Can't wait. I just hope there are more retro and arcade games to play this year and the expo doesn't take a shift towards a more pro competition event.

Hoping it will be better than last year, a little disappointed tbh. But Manchester is close so will be taking a butchers.

Awesome, I think I'll be going both days if the arcade section is as good as it looked last year. I'm training to get the high score on pacman at the event!
