GameStart 2016 - The Night before

It's that time of the year again! GameStart 2016 Weekend starts tomorrow, 7 Oct and lasts for 3 days till 9 Oct.

Singapore's very own annual gaming convention! There's going to be tons of games, merchandise, competitions, deals and so much more in store for attendees.

GameStart is only in it's 3rd year and having attended the first 2 years, I'm definitely going again. Bought the VIP ticket last year, which came in very, very handy in beating the queues for the popular attractions. I had no regrets on that purchase and I bought the VIP ticket again this year.

That means I'll be able to enter at 11am tomorrow, instead of 2pm for the regular ticket holders! I absolutely hate queues so it's definitely going to come in handy for the next 3 days. That said.. Hopefully the $70 ticket purchase, which comes with the Official T-shirt, is worth the price.

There is already a huge concern due to the alarming absence of any PlayStation exclusives or a proper PlayStation booth this year. 

A few weeks ago, it was announced that PlayStation Asia would be presenting the South East Major 2016 at GameStart 2016; one of the largest fighting game tournaments in Asia. 

Great news for fighting game fanatics but where are the game demos? 

PS4 Pro and PlayStation VR are huge hardware releases for PlayStation in the coming months. Aren't we going to get a chance to check it out?

I know of many friends who were looking forward to this but are now seriously considering not even attending. Looks like I'm going to be the 'guinea pig' who's going to 'review' the convention on the 1st day. Hoping there will be a few surprises that will allow me to convince them to head down.

On a positive note, XBox Singapore, who were a no-show in the 2 years are finally making their entrance. At least on a gaming point of view, there will be something to look forward to.

I will be updating my Instagram live from the showfloor tomorrow. So, if you are still on the fence about attending or want to get an early preview, do follow my Instagram account. Of course, my International friends, you wouldn't want to miss out on this gaming fiesta either. Hoping to see & take pics of lots of interesting gaming cosplayers too!

Don't have a Instagram account? You can follow me on Facebook or Twitter as well. Feel free to let me know what you would like to see and I'll do my best to do more coverage on that.
