There will be two Eurogamer Expos this year, it was confirmed this morning, another in London and, for the first time, an event in Leeds.

Eurogamer Network MD Rupert Loman said today that the now-announced Eurogamer Expo would be a “great place” for publisher announcements, saying the event is unique in terms of getting pre-release games in the hands of British fans.
“It’s going to be a similar format to last year – lots and lots of playable games,” he said. “I’m not sure publishers have many announcements to make at that time of year, generally – but if they did, it’d be a great place for them to do it.
“More important for us is to get some games that are playable at the show that have never been played by the public before.”
The expo will take place on two sites this October, firstly in Leeds and then in London. Last year’s show was a South-only affair.
“When we asked people how far they traveled to come to last year’s event the vast majority said less than 100 miles,” Loman added. “It’s a bit of a stretch to travel for more than two hours each way to come to an event for one day.
“As a result there’s millions of gamers in the north of England that don’t have any kind of event like this, so instead of getting them to come to us, we’re going to them.”
The Expo, as it stands, remains unchallenged in the UK, a fact that hasn’t been lost on the exec.
“The reason we started the Expo is because there was nothing like it in the UK – and that’s still the case,” he said. “So in terms of actually playing the biggest games this Christmas, I’m not sure if there’s anywhere else to go.”

Eurogamer Network’s just announced the launch of its Portuguese site – Eurogamer.pt, obviously – to be published in conjunction with local publisher LusoPlay.
The company also claimed it reached more than 2.1 million unique users with the Eurogamer brand in April 2008.
There are now local language Eurogamer sites in place in the UK, France, Germany and Portugal.
“[Lusoplay's] expertise in the Portuguese gaming market and community, combined with the Eurogamer brand, reach, technology and infrastructure, mean Eurogamer.pt will quickly become the leading video game content site in Portugal,” said Eurogamer MD Rupert Loman.

It’s Euro web-war, kids. Gamespot UK today claimed it has 3.5 million unique users (UUs) in the UK, quoting ABCe figures from December.
“The gaming industry has seen explosive growth over the last 12 months, with new game launches such as Halo 3 far outstripping the majority of film openings in terms of first-day sales,” said GameSpot UK site manager Laura Jenner. “The UK gaming community is highly passionate and our experienced editorial team is dedicated to delivering the kind of targeted, in-depth and knowledgeable content that this community has come to expect. This audit confirms GameSpot UK’s position as the interactive gaming community of choice within the UK, and we look forward to building on this success further in 2008.”
The news comes on the back of recent figures from Eurogamer Network (1.8 million UUs across Eurogamer.net, Eurogamer.de and Eurogamer.fr) and Computec (1.39 million UUs across its German network, mainly on PCGames.de and Buffed.de). CVG’s last major figures-release was in last May, which claimed 1.56 million UUs across the CVG Network.
