I attended the Eurogamer Expo (EGX) in London along with thousands of enthusiastic gamers who queued up and waited for hours to get their hands on the next generation of console gaming. Both the XBOX One and the PS4 made their UK debut at the EGX, and it was a blast to hang out with gamers, chatting with them about their expectations from the next gen, what games they were looking forward to, and most importantly which side of the fence they were on – XBOX One vs. PS4.
Since the E3 announcement, I had made up my mind to go for the PS4, and even pre-ordered a day-one release edition. Hence, it was obvious that I was most excited to be at the PS4 booth, anxiously waiting to try the games out. But let me tell you one thing. Gaming cons such as EGX are not for the impatient. The queue for the PS4 booth was atrociously long, and I had to wait for almost 90 minutes before I could even play a single game. To make matters even worse, we were given game tokens, capping us on how many games we could play. And even worse, was that all the major games were put under one token. That sucked balls, but I kinda tried to sneak in to play as many games as I could. Here are my impressions.
