The Paris Game Week is coming soon, which is the second largest gaming event in the world believe it or not, obviously we need a thread centered to all kinds of discussions about it, and for no real reason I did it this time.
- What is the Paris Games Week show ?
The Paris Games Week, or more commonly called 'PGW' is the French show dedicated to video games and its derivatives. The event belongs to the SELL (Syndicate of leisure and software publishers). This year is the sixth edition of the show.
- When and where will take place the show ?
This sixth edition will take place from October 28 to November 1, 2015 at the Paris Expo fairground - Porte de Versailles in Paris. The fair will be open daily from 9.00 am to 7.00 pm except on the last day, Sunday, November 1, closure at 6.00 pm. Address : 1, place de la Porte de Versailles 75015 Paris.
- Why should I care?
There's one reason why this PGW will be more interested in than the previous ones and it's Sony, this time Sony skipped a press conference on the other European event, Gamescom, in favor of one of the PGW so expect all sorts of big news to come from them then!
- I don't follow Sony, will be gaming company of preference be attending?
While Sony will be the center of attention is not the only attendee, Nintendo, Square Enix, Koei Tecmo, Electronic Arts, Microsoft, Bandai Namco; and many, many other companies will be attending too so there should enough news to satisfy everyone.
Too keep up with the news as they come the PGW have many social media accounts, so If I were to get lazy here are all kinds of links!
PlayStation Media Preview
Due to some issues with the countdown timer I used on E3 I won't be posting one, instead I'll do an hyperlink to a COUNTDOWN TIMER which looks way nicer anyway.
