rAge Expo 2013 details unveiled

The countdown has begun: 170 days to go until this year’s really Awesome gaming expo (rAge). Both hard-core and casual gamers, and everyone in between, are already imagining what feast of gaming goodness this year’s expo organisers and exhibitors will dishing up. The continent’s largest technology and gaming exhibition, brought to you by the creators of NAG magazine, is a three-day fever fest of everything that is gaming, as well as all the latest technology, and is eagerly anticipated by professional gamers, casual players and families alike. Running from 4-6 October 2013 at the Coca-Cola Dome, rAge 2013 will showcase computer and console gaming hardware, PC, PlayStation, Xbox and Nintendo games, gaming accessories from joysticks to headphones, comic books, figurines, anime, role-playing, cosplay, board games, creative arts, competitive collectible card games, local game developers and much more!

With an attendance record that grows every year, the organisers are expecting record attendances in 2013 and these visitors are in for a treat. In addition to local gaming representation, rAge has also caught the attention of international developers and experts in the field who encourage visitors to interact with them and to see – and even play – preview (beta) game code months before it goes on sale, as well as experience behind closed doors game presentations on the show floor.

rAge 2013 sees the return of the mind blowing NAG LAN – a thrilling 56 hour event where around 2,000 gamers are connected for the largest LAN (local area network) in the southern hemisphere. Tickets for this sell out in a matter of hours, so be on the lookout for the bookings open notice sometime in August.

The Overlord, the master, the one who tries to get things done… I think they call it the “Editor-in-Chief”… I may even be cooler than Master Chief, but that remains to be questioned.
