Three Weeks Before Their Release
The battle between the industry's two console behemoths is really starting to heat up at the moment, and many gamers are still trying to decide which way they will be going at the end of November, so any opportunity to get hands-on with the PS4 and Xbox One is certainly worthy of note. If you missed the chance to try out both consoles at this year's Eurogamer Expo you've got another opportunity next month at the Gadget Show Live @ Christmas, where both the Playstation 4 and the Xbox One will be on the show floor with a selection of launch titles available to help consumers make that all-important purchase decision.
“What a treat for our visitors to be able to get their hands on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 weeks before they hit the shops; it’s a fantastic opportunity for gamers as the new consoles are the absolute must-have gadgets this Christmas,” commented event manager Katie Tozer ahead of this year's show. She's not wrong - with bundles costing from £350 upwards, consumers will want to make sure their money is being spent wisely.
In addition to the appearance of the Playstation 4 and Xbox One, the Android-powered microconsole Game Stick will also have a large presence at this year's event, and a variety of tournaments and competitions will be ongoing throughout the weekend - all of which will be hosted on the Game Zone stage by former Hollyoaks’ stars Matt Littler and Darren Jeffries.
Tickets for the event, which takes place 1st - 3rd November at Earl's Court London, are available to buy on the official Gadget Show @ Christmas website.
