It’s not “all” about E3 when it comes to gaming expos. There’s no denying that E3 is the big gaming event of the year but, for those who live in the UK, what are the alternatives that you can actually attend? The biggest UK gaming Expo is hosted by Eurogamer and is traditionally held each year around September in London. Most gaming events in the UK take place in the capital but, again there are alternatives and there may be a gaming convention near to you.
UK Supermarket Morrisons have reduced the price of the Sony PlayStation 3, Nintendo Wii and Microsoft’s Xbox 360 in a bid to clear out excess stock left over from Christmas.
The offer allegedly runs for three weeks or until stock runs out which is quite likely to be far less than three weeks. The sale prices are listed below:
PS3 slim 160GB – £150
PS3 250GB with Karate Kid Blu-Ray – £200
Wii – £85
Wii Mario Kart bundle – £85
Xbox 360 4GB + Kinect £185
Xbox 360 250GB £150
To avoid disappointment, it’s best to ring your local store to see if they have any consoles left in stock.
I’m not quite sure how I missed this nugget of news but, Sega have confirmed that Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode 2 will be released sometime this year. Sega have unveiled the logo design for Sonic 4 Episode 2 and have also released a trailer of the upcoming game.
Sonic 4 Episode 2 continues where Episode 1 left off which was released 2010. We see Metal Sonic return as well as Sonic’s pal Tails. You can view the trailer for Sonic 4 Episode 2 below.
Following on from their recent Xbox 360 promotion, retailer Zavvi are now offering selected PS3 titles at a discounted price on their eBay outlet store.
Titles such as Flashpoint: Red River, Homefront, Prince of Persia Trilogy, 007: Blood Stone and Yoostar 2: In the Movies are available at £9.99 which includes shipping which, on some of the games available, compared to the prices of some of the titles in other UK stores, is a bit of a bargain.
The Zavvi eBay store can be found here: ZAVVI OUTLET
Just been looking on eBay and I came across some £8.99 bargains from the Zavvi Outlet that I thought were good enough to share with other gamers including:
Full range of titles on offer can be found here: ZavviOutlet eBay
All for the Xbox 360, all at £8.99 brand new. Most are from the ‘Classics’ range of games and most are cheaper on this offer than Ive managed to find them elsewhere so far. Postage is free too so, you could grab a bargain!

Earlier this year, Sega announced that they would be bringing Sonic CD to the Xbox 360, PS3 as well as mobile devices. It was speculated that Sega would release the game in time for the festive period and that has rung true.
Sega have released Sonic CD on the Xbox 360 for 400 Microsoft points and will be released on the PS3 on December 20th. The price for PS3 owners is currently unknown but, is likely to be around £3. Sonic CD was set to be released on iOS and Android in early 2012 but, Sega have gifted mobile gamers with an early release. The game is now available on the iTunes store for £1.49 or on Android for £1.29. Not only that but, for Xperia Play owners, the game has been optimized for use with the PlayStation controls.
Rockstar announced a while back that they would be bringing GTA III to Android and iOS. The day has finally arrived and GTA III can now be downloaded on the iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, as well as various Android powered devices. Not all Android devices are supported yet, including flagship phones such as the Samsung Galaxy Nexus – support is coming soon though.
GTA III was originally released in 2001 by Rockstar on the Sony PlayStation 2 and to mark it’s tenth anniversary, it’s been made available for portable devices and actually works quite well. GTA III is one of the classic GTA games by Rockstar and is the first GTA game to go 3D.
We first saw Just Dance on the Nintendo Wii, which was subsequently followed by Just Dance 2, also a Nintendo Wii exclusive game. Just Dance 3 however changes all of that. For the first time ever, a Just Dance game is no longer a Wii exclusive.
Ubisoft have released Just Dance 3 on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Nintendo Wii. The Wii version again makes use of the Wii remote and Kinect and PS Move make it possible on the Xbox 360 and PlayStaion 3. We will be reviewing the Xbox 360 Kinect version of the game, which I’ve been playing for the past few days.
