Best Buy 'Gaming Invasion 08' Impressions, Pictures

NextGen Player was on hand this past weekend to check out the massive Best Buy Canada 'Gaming Invasion 08' party that happened downtown Toronto at the Yonge-Dundas Square. It was an amazing event with dozens of gaming stations set-up playing the hottest games available this holiday. There were even a number of games playable that have not hit retail shelves including LittleBigPlanet, Gears of War 2, Guitar Hero World Tour, MotorStorm Pacific Rift and Resistance 2.

What I found most impressive about the event was the huge, dedicated tent erected solely to promote Sony's LittleBigPlanet. Immediately inside the tent you were greeted with wall-to-wall images of Sackboy, in-game scenery and characters, as well as text reinforcing the game's motto of play, create, share. I even got my picture taken in front of a huge Sackboy sticker wall that Sony is supposed to be posting on their website sometime this week. Once I get my hands on the photo I'll be sure to share on NextGen Player.

For those interested, here are some photos that Matt Vernhout and I took this week at Gaming Invasion '08. Enjoy!
