Organisers of this year's New York Comic Con have revealed that the allocated space for games at the show now takes up around 50 percent of the show floor.

"I am enormously pleased and gratified to see how much and how fast our videogame component has grown since last year," commented show manager Lance Fensterman.

"From the get go, one of our principal goals at New York Comic Con has been to build on our core interest, which is comics, by expanding outwards to include other interests.

"This is what defines us as a true pop culture event. We provide a wide range of stimulating activity which commands the attention of our many fans. I couldn’t be happier that videogaming is now taking a leading role in all of this."

The New York Comic Con gets underway at the Jacob Javits Center on February 6 and lasts two days.

The titles on show include Prototype, Champions Online, The Godfather 2 and Afro Samurai.

Thanks, GI.
