Eurogamer Expo 2013 Developer Sessions Announced

Learning lessons from The Kojima Incident.

Last year, thousands of people kept on queueing up for Hideo Kojima’s Metal Gear Solid session at Eurogamer Expo, even though it was already full up. The staff were walking up the queue and telling people that it was already full, from well over an hour before the session started, but by the time they got to the end of the line of people and had dispersed the disappointed attendees, the front was already re-forming.

So this year, they’re trying to avoid this in two ways, by both streaming every session on Youtube, and also having an overflow area, where people can watch on screens and even recharge phones as they’re doing so. Very handy.

There’s a heck of a lot on, and each of the following sessions will last around 35 minutes, with all of the next-gen and indie gaming you could possibly wish for.

    Widh I was going Thursday to see Mr. Harrison… probably would have been annoyed at the conference, but there you go.

      I second that. The first two, which i never played, looked awesome, cant wait for this one to hit the PS4. Saturday is the best looking day by far.

        I’ve played 2 and was instantly sold. 1 I purchased after on Steam but it has been added to the backlog (curse PS+)

    I’ll definitely watch Watch Dogs and Thief. It’s a great idea they’re doing this, I remember the sessions I went to were really good 2 years ago.
