Several official distributors will be exhibiting at rAge, including Nintendo, Megarom, Electronic Arts, and Ster Kinekor – who represent a major portion of the titles available in South Africa.

Nintendo’s line-up for Wii U at rAge will deliver something for everyone – from aspiring SiNG Party divas through to ZombiU smash-ups, as well as a dedicated demo area for exclusive interaction with the developers of this spine tingling, survival horror.

Megarom will have some of the biggest video games on display, where gamers will be able to get their hands on playable demos of Far Cry 3, XCOM: Enemy Unknown, Rocksmith and of course Assassin’s Creed 3 – one of the highly-anticipated games to be released later this year.

Electronics manufacturers will also be exhibiting their latest products, such as Alienware. This is the third year that Alienware will be present at rAge and, once again, it promises not to disappoint.  Dell will be launching an Alienware online store specifically for the South African community.

Products available include The Alienware M14x, M17x and M18x, X51 desktops and peripherals. The different specifications and options will be available on www.alienware.co.za. The website will be live on 5th October just in time for rAge.

Gamers will also be able to get their 72-hours of gaming, as the NAG LAN will be making it’s return. Organised and managed by NAG Magazine, this year’s NAG LAN is captivating and interactive entertainment at its best. Designed by the experts in this field, rAge speaks to the heart of every techno-junkie and gamer out there.

IT News Africa will be at rAge, so be sure to check back for the latest updates, news and interviews. Follow Consumer Tech editor Charlie Fripp on Twitter, as he will be tweeting live from the showroom floor with pictures of all the gaming goodness.
