AVC Online Announces The 2011 Video Game Summit

 

 

Chicago, IL 9:15 PM 11/2/2010 Remember how much fun you used to have

playing Atari, Nintendo and all kinds of games on your computer?  Well,

you will have the rare opportunity to play these great games again at

the Video Game Summit, Chicago 's premier video game trade show.  In

fact, dealers in retro games will be on hand offering games,

controllers,systems and memorabilia and will be prepared to buy or trade

for the games you have held onto since you were a kid.  Who knows, you

might just have an Atari cartridge worth $1000 or more collecting dust

in your attic.

 

"Retrogaming," the playing and collecting of classic video and computer

games, is more popular than ever.

In fact, a dedicated group of programmers still issues new games for

game systems,such as the Atari 2600, last seen in retail stores over

fifteen years ago. The Video Game Summit, now in its eighth year,

brings together classic and modern generation gamers from all over the

country to swap stories, games and to compete in sanctioned tournaments

and raffles.

The event is open to the public and people of all ages with an interest in

video games or computers are encouraged to attend.  According to the

event's organizer, Dan Iacovelli, "we plan to have many retro and modern

game consoles for play”.

Heron Point Convention Center,665 West North Avenue , Lombard,IL

2 x 5 tables 2 side tables and one front table) booth price includes

Guys, well Turbo Fest will still be the headliner. I have been talking to Dan to see if I can get 2 TVs next to the Turbo Fest Station (3 TVs in total). Like I mentioned before, I would love to have multi-linked system games. It is amazing how many great AES games we have altogether. If we let our powers combine..... Captain Planet!! LOL I am pondering as to whether or not do tourneys for the Neo Geo as well. But we still have time to plan.

 

Crono, you can rest assured that Samurai Ghost will resurrect next year with all its glory.  \oo/
