There are plenty to do at GAMEX – stage activities where you can check out virtual reality (VR) gaming experience, HEARTHSTONE competition and exclusive game showcase of PlayStation Horizon Zero Dawn and Nioh, this is one show not to be missed.

At the PlayStation booth, participants will get to experience and discover a new world of unexpected gaming and entertainment experiences with PlayStation®VR. Step into incredible virtual worlds with games such as Horizon Zero Dawn, an exhilarating new open-world action role-playing game in which the gamer takes on the role of skilled hunter Aloy for exploring a vibrant and lush world inhabited by mysterious mechanized creatures.

The top gaming brands will all be featured at the show and gamers can be sure to save big on their latest hardware and software. Don’t miss out on deals and latest launches from brands such as Steelseries, Hyperx, Zowie, Gigabyte, ASUS, and Acer.

You no longer need to do that with ChatSim – the world’s first SIM card that lets you enjoy unlimited messaging from anywhere on the globe on your favorite chat apps – WhatsApp, Messenger, WeChat, Line, Telegram and many more! 

Some of the newest bots in the market will also be introduced at IT Show 2017! One of which is Lumigent, the smart robotic desk lamp that is so much more than a light source!
