Running from September 24 – 27 at the NEC in Birmingham, EGX 2015 is the UK’s biggest video games event and will feature a big presence by PlayStation.
First up, 28 games will be playable at the PlayStation stand, including the first ever hands-on demo for Project Morpheus at a UK consumer event. However, “to help manage queues and avoid disappointment,” those wanting to try Morpheus will need to pre-book a timeslot, with more details on that coming next week.

In terms of panels, Shuhei Yoshida will take part in a discussion at 1pm on September 26 titled ’20 Years of Play – a Q&A with Shuhei Yoshida.’ As the description reveals, “Topics will include a look back at the launch of the original PSone, changes in the video game market, and Shuhei Yoshida’s memories of iconic PlayStation moments from the last 20 years.”
