If they hold one next year, don't bother. Absolute s**t in the nicest possible terms, so glad I only got a morning pass as I'd been round the whole show within 30 minutes.

I'd only seen a few posts etc about this ... what was it about?

Just a few stalls with xbox 360s, ps3's, wii's trying out the newly released games and then you'd have to wait donkeys to even get a go. 007's new Astin Martin, Ghostbusters Ecto 1 were on show. Not a lot else either.

Not really selling the event to me ...

Mate it was shocking, they had about 6 xbox 360s with R6 Vegas 2 on to try out, 2 or 3 xbox 360s with Indiana Jones LEgo on, the advert on Play was making out as if it was going to be something massive.

what about the bands??

You me at six?

Wasn't in there long enough to hang about, literally we'd walked round the whole place 3 or 4 times over in the space of 45 minutes & seen everything there was to see. Complete & utter panties....

Who had a VIP Ticket ?

I really enjoyed it, was chatting to the reps for quite a while, was in the VIP gamers lounge for most the afternoon, got tons of freebies - made £50 so far from selling some, keeping a ton, i'm really glad I got VIP tickets, definatly going next year if they do it again!

I really must have been off form, I had an MCV VIP pass and the only thing I managed to get was a EA bag, thought the whole event was VERY small compared to the old trade shows me and the team used to go to back at Earls Court and Kensington Olympia at the start of the 2000's.
Was there a sepperate VIP area pr anything?
Think we stayed long enough to see Vincent, Vincent and the something or others (who incidentally were quite good!) and then we left, my mate went for a smoke so we went outside and the kind security asked us to leave the area as my mate was smoking, we decided to just leave all together, lol.

When you came out of the main room, if you went up the escalator, there was the VIP area with Tom Baker signing Dr Who stuff, someone from Red Dwarf, Sandisk area, motobike with woman on, a small shop, the Farcry 2 area, gamers lounge, bluray area and a couple other small stand. I was in the gamers lounge for ages

Went upstairs but never saw the Sandisk area. Like I said, very very disappointed with the event. As said by MikeBeaver, I was expecting it to be like the FES. I can safely say I won't be parting with my hard earned cash next year.
