If some how you've been out of the loop the past couple of weeks, the eGames & Entertainment kicks off tomorrow in Melbourne. Shaping up to be one of the biggest video game events in Australia, let alone Melbourne, eGames will give gamers a chance to get hands on with the latest titles along with several unreleased hits on their way.
So why should you shell out the tiny ticket price? Here's a pretty good list of reasons.
Tiger Woods PGA Tour ® 08
Pokemon Battle Revolution
Super Mario Galaxy
Link’s Crossbow Training & Wii Zapper
Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles
Unchartered: Drake’s Fortune
Time Crisis 4
Gran Turismo 5 Prologue

All of these unreleased titles and more will be available hands on starting tomorrow at the eGames expo. First thing on the agenda is a live music performance from the Eminence Symphony Artists, featuring Hitoshi Sakimoto, composer of Final Fantasy XII's soundtrack. You'll be able to watch keynotes from the level designers of Bioshock (Dean Tate and Jonathan Pelling), Brian Algier from Insomniac, developers behind Rachet and Clank for PS3, Nintendo's Greg Arthurton and more.
