In fact, it’s estimated that by 2017, console, mobile and computer gaming will be worth R3.3 billion. This week sees the return of the biggest local video gaming, computer, technology and geek culture exhibition – and it looks like it’s gonna be amazing.

Apart from being able to view and purchase all the latest gaming and tech gadgets, there will be convention artists, graphic art signings, comics, anime, role-playing, collectible card games, digital lifestyle gear, cosplay, and appearances by AKA and Jack Parow.
