Win tickets to UK public game event 'Game On! London'

For details of how to win tickets, see bottom of page

You might say that the UK is under-represented when it comes to public-access game events - shows where you can play previews of upcoming games and take part in multiplayer game tournaments. And pick up schwag.

The Germans get the yearly Game Convention, the Japanese Tokyo Game Show, the US the Penny Arcade Expo (regular punters still aren't allowed access to E3) but gamers in the UK - not much, except the successful, but PC-centric PC Gamer Showdown.

This year that all changes with the HMV sponsored Game On! London. The event is being run by the UKeSA, a nascent organisation tasked with developing and growing professional and grass-roots competitive gaming.

Hosting 25,000 attendees, Game On! London will be held in the Olympia Exhibition Center between 20th and 21st June 2009 and will give gamers the chance to play early versions of unreleased games and spectate at the Dell XPS Premiership Season One Finals - comprised of UK eSport's most elite gaming teams.

So how do you get tickets to the event? Easy - either buy them (now at £5) each from HMV or alternatively try to win a pair from us. Just PM GamesRadarJustinTowell with the answer to the question below and we'll pick out two winners each week until the event (total: 5 pairs of tickets). By entering, you also confirm that you agree to our standard competition terms and conditions. Competition is open to UK entrants only.

So the question:

Which of the following series has seen a game set in London?

a) Grand Theft Auto
b) Pokemon
c) Half-Life

Be sure to include your name and address in your PM so we can send you your tickets if you win.

    I got my tickets early! Me and the fiancee are really excited... it's quiet sad. Tickets are available at the HMV store (as they are one of the sponsor) -

    yeah, I agree with Sash, we're stuck up here with no news except from you guys and down in London retro gaming's all the rage so while well-meaning publishers are trying to gain interest in HD titles and graphically-advanced games and all they want to know is "IS IT IN 8-BIT FOR GOD'S SAKE?!"

    Shame its in London. Would like to see another gaming event in Scotland, like the one at the Edinburgh Museum at the start of 2000.
