The EB Vendor show – an event which usually takes place in the Gold Coast bi-annually – is typically an industry video games events where publishers such as EA and Activision demo upcoming titles to prospective EB Store Buyers, in the hope that they’ll buy more stock of certain titles.
EB now want to open that event to the public.
According to the ex-employee, EB’s plan is to keep the vendor show open for an extra couple of days – over the weekend – and sell tickets, to give consumers an peek at upcoming games. It’s an attempt to give the general and inside look into the games industry, but is mostly intended as a way to get people excited about new games.
Considering the information we’ve gotten from EB’s website itself, we’re expecting the first show to kick off in Brisbane at roughly October this year.
More news as we get it.
