A UK-based alternative to E3 will take place in London during the US event, and it has been sponsored by PlayStation.
As headline sponsor, PlayStation will be in attendance, with Naughty Dogâ€™s The Last of Us playable, as well as innovative platform adventure Rain and perhaps some surprise extras. David Wilson,
Head of PR for PlayStation UK said, â€œPlayStation is pretty excited about EToo. As well as giving attendees the chance to witness our E3 conference live, thereâ€™ll be loads of time to get hands on with a range of awesome games from the blockbuster, The Last Of Us, to the small but beautifully formed Rainâ€
Per TSA, the event is co-organised by Keith Stuart of The Guardian who came up with the idea along with Hotsauce Interacticeâ€™s Georg Backer after â€œsulking on Twitter about not being able to go to E3.â€
Jimmy Dance, the owner of Loading Bar in Soho, stepped forward and said the event could be held at his establishment.
Developers, publishers and games confirmed for the event include New Star Games with New Star Soccer, Hello Games, Mediatonic with Foul Play, Nyamyam Games, Big Robot is bringing Sir You Are Being Hunted, Simon Roth, Tom Francis, Tiniest Shark, Alistair Aitcheson, Curves Studios and Projector Games.
