2011 Eurogamer Expo Day 1 Wrap

Wow, what a day! Between the chance to play with Sony’s PlayStation Vita and OnLive giving away their console for free (yes, for free!) to the lucky early-birds, it was a blockbuster opening to this year’s EuroGamer Expo!

Of course, we headed to the games straightaway. We got the chance to sit down and play with some of the biggest games of the Christmas period, with titles including Final Fantasy XIII-2, Rift, Skyrim, Battlefield, Sonic Generations, Forza 4 (just to name a few!).  Keep tuned in to for a more in-depth look at these games.

We also had the privilege to finally sit down with OnLive’s cloud gaming service and got the chance to see the system working on tablet devices.  Needless to say, it looks to be a fantastic system that is fluid and lag free. It offers the chance to play games on the move, at console standard, with no chop to speak of. We’ll be taking an in-depth look at OnLive soon!

There are so many games on offer here and we haven’t even looked at the indie games show, retro games, careers fair, and everything else that is available at EuroGamer 2011.  The next few days promises to be busy! So keep yours eyes on for more news and views on the games and consoles that you will want to buy over the coming months.

In the meantime, take a look at these photos (we’ve got more coming!), and if you’re in the area and have the opportunity to get down to the Expo, you really, really should!

Editor’s Note – Slideshow is fixed!

Can OnLive Be A Success When It Launches In Europe?

The cloud gaming service, OnLive, makes its way to Europe in September, but can it be a success and become the ‘fourth option’ for gamers?

Being from the UK, I’ve gotten quite used to having to wait for most technological things to make their way here.  But if we Brits are anything, we are patient.  However, every once in a while something will come around that even my almost saintly level of British patience can’t take.  OnLive is one of them.

OnLive is somewhat of an enigma here in the UK and across Europe in general.  Since its launch at E3 2010, any solid pieces of information in relation to its European release have been few and far between.   Read On »
