EB Expo 2012: Final Verdict: OXCGN’s Report Card

OXCGN:

"This was it. The sequel.
A whole year in the making, and did it deliver on its promise to be bigger and better than the first ever EB Expo?" (3DS, EB Expo, EB Expo 2012, Industry, iPad, iPhone, Mobile, Next-Gen, Nintendo DS, PC, PS Vita, PS3, Tech, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360) -

I went to last year's one on the Gold Coast and had fun. Everything ends up being in Sydney, which is a bit annoying.

The fact is that Australia has had 'game shows' before, but nothing of this scope. Next year looks huge with PAX and EB Expo. Can there be 2 big shows in Australia?

Hopefully so. But I fear that publishers will choose one or the other and both might suffer.

I think EB and PAX are two different shows, catering to different audiences.

I got the impression that EB Expo, especially the staff working, were too over-the-top in pushing sales.

I think PAX suits a totally different market.

The more games shows over here the better IMO.

After seeing a couple of previews and having a go at some games, watching/taking photos of cosplayers and collectible exhibit toys and other stuff, thought it was a nice experience..

..but still lacking. I'm sure it will improve in time.

I don't know if mixing comics and games - like a back-to-back Oz Comic-con and EB Expo would be a good idea because they both cater to the same crowds?
