Manchester Videogame Expo

Following on from this post, I thought I would share my brief experience at the expo at the Urbis. I went back in May I think (can't remember) and was disappointed with the lack of SEGA memories.

All in all, it was pretty good though. I was lucky to go outside of the summer holidays, so no children were about. Playing the original wipEout brought back a few memories.

There should have been more Sonic material there... he was (is??) a massive gaming icon.

I did think this peice of art was fantastic though.

What really struck me was the lack of Saturn and Dreamcast information. The Saturn was a massively failure against the Playstation and should not be forgotten. The Dreamcast was SEGA going out with a bang - and should not be forgotten either. I was upset that I had more of a retro collection in my apartment than at an exhibition... but such is life.

On the pin-board I noticed this lovely note, so I had to take a photo of it. "What about the Dreamcast" indeed, my good friend.
