GameStart is back for its third year for a weekend full of game showcases & previews, esports tournaments and cosplaying for gamers of all levels.
Sony Interactive Entertainment returns this year as a major exhibitor with the largest booth at the event. Sony will be showcasing their brand-new revamped PlayStation console, dubbed by fans as the PS4 Slim.
They are also presenting sponsor for SEA Major 2016, the largest console tournament in Southeast Asia, involving top players in Street Fighter battling it out for a spot at the Capcom Cup 2016.
Xbox will also be making its first appearance at GameStart this year, bringing with it upcoming games including Gears of War 4, Forza Horizon 3 and Final Fantasy XV.
Following PlayStation’s Remote Play announcement, Microsoft will be introducing its own cross-platform feature between the Xbox and PCs. The feature will also allow Xbox users to get PC versions of their new games for free whenever they purchase one for the Xbox.
Visitors can also get their hands on some retro gaming with Pixel Play, an Indiegogo project that recreates the look and feel of arcade machines minus the bulk.
As with every year, GameStart will be hosting its annual FIFA tournament, the GameStart Championship Cup, supported by Xbox Singapore.
Besides checking out the exhibitions, visitors can also take part in ‘side-quests’ by completing activities at specific booths around the hall to get a lucky dip and increase their chances for the GameStart lucky draw. Prizes include Secret Lab gaming chairs, ViewSonic 27″ monitors and an MSI notebook.
GameStart 2016 runs from October 7-9 at Suntec Convention Centre, Hall 405 and 406.
Tickets are priced at $12 (one day), $30 (3-day pass) and free entry for cosplayers.
