The eGames and Entertainment Expo, Australian's answer to E3, is now under way in Melbourne:
Australia’s largest electronic games and digital entertainment expo, the eGames & Entertainment Expo, is coming to the Melbourne Exhibition Centre from 17–19 of November. Showcasing the latest and yet to be released video games and consoles, this years expo will be remembered for the chance to play on Nintendo Wii weeks before it goes on sale in Australia, along with loads of other product launches and new digital entertainment products to experience and buy.

Sony Computer Entertainment Australia & New Zealand’s Managing Director, Michael Ephraim, will present the Playstation 3 on the main stage, four months before it arrives in Australia. There'll be keynotes by Microsoft's David McLean, Nintendo demonstrating Wii, Intel pushing out Core 2 Duo power and World’s First 3D gaming technology. See demonstrations at the Intel® Viiv presentation area and discover what the future in home entertainment holds.
If you're in town head in and check it out!

Just been there. It's alright...

Don't know why but I expected there to be a PS3 showing by Sony. How wrong was I... I guess it's limited to the main stage on another day. I'm not paying $13 to see it, though.

There was a big X360 presence, however, with Fight night 3 on a huge one metre+ LG screen, along with DOAX2 loaded on one of the demonstration units. They were giving away free X360 Gears of War faceplates if you lined up to play GoW in the tent. I lined up near the end of the day and got turned away. Oh well, i don't have a X360 to put it on anyway ;) The game looks amazing by the way, certainly blew away my expectation for it. Pity the HD projector they were using had the "rainbow effect".

The Wii stand brought in significant number of attendees with Zelda, Wii Sports (Tennis only), Excite Truck, Wario, Tony Hawks Downhill Jam and Red Steel. Red Steel and Zelda probably drew in the longest queue, expectedly.
Didn't have a long look at Zelda, but it looks as amazing as it does in the trailers. Red Steel looks quite average in terms of visuals and many people seem to have trouble aiming the gun. I was surprised to find that the nunhuck joystick has a sensor in it too, not just the Wiimote! To block a sword strike you wave it either left or right in Red Steel and the Wiimote is used to swing your sword. I'm certainly bought on Wii. Wii pre-order here I come!

I was a little disappointed as alot more could have been done to "jazz" up this event. There was no sign out the front as far as I could tell and there were't many interesting stands. Maybe I'm a jaded gamer or I was expecting an E3, but there's many improvements that could be done. On the upside I got to see GoW, Fight Night 3 and Rainbow6: Las Vegas in HD, and saw Red Steel, Wario and Zelda on the Wii in action!

First day was pretty good fun, plenty to see i thought, although the head-to-head things were kind of stupid...2 player Call of Duty 2...

Also, kudos to Auran for getting there idea's out there, Fury looks like a pretty cool game.
And i'm not sure if anyone else saw the discussion with the Nintendo/Sony/Microsoft rep's near the end, but the Nintendo lady was AWFUL!!
Just horrible, she seemed to be impressed by the fact she could say "nintendo DS", and if she's ever played a single game, i'll eat my computer screen.

Thought it was nice also that there was plenty to play there, Wii's, 360's, PSP's, crazy powerful computers and that weird fencing game i didn't try.

Looking forward to a good day today!!
2-day pass ftw.

Thanks for the link XandraX. To my surprise i actually had a quick chat that guy while at the queue for the Gears of War demonstration, before we got turned away by the rather unfriendly organiser.
