@rAgeExpo #2015 #SouthAfrica brings #Computers #Gaming and #Technology

Hi Guys, 

rAGE Expo always have the deals which makes you go for the products from your wishlist which you earlier couldn't afford or you were looking for options to choose from. I bought Sony Playstation 3 last year from the expo along with various other stuff I always wanted to have. The same is happening on 9, 10 and 11 October 2015. This year, I hope they will have much more deals at huge discounts - 

NAG, in collaboration with MSI, will be hosting an Overclocking Workshop at rAge. Three of our country’s most prominent overclockers will be running the workshop – Andrew “dRweEZ” Roberts, Goddy “ViVi” Roodt, and Neo “ShockG” Sibeko. Throughout the weekend 4 amateur and novice overclockers will be shown the ropes and will compete against each other for a chance at winning prizes to the value of R15,000.

This year the headline sponsor for the NAG LAN is FPB, with Intel, as always, providing the servers needed to host the LAN. HP will be supplying the network infrastructure and switches, while broadband connectivity is managed by IS, ensuring the lowest possible pings when connecting to online servers.
Access to the NAG LAN is limited, if you wish to gain entry for pictures please contact Kerry or Sarah in the press office. 

Showcasing all Disney Infinity characters, Disney, Disney Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars. Visitors will also be able to play the 3.0 Star Wars version. 

For the first time in rAge history Call of Duty multiplayer will be playable on the show floor. Black Ops III is coming out with its gun blazing allowing attendees to play in a 6v6 fight to the death!
Other games that will be on display are: Rainbow 6 Siege; Just Cause 3; Assassins Creed Syndicate, The Division, Guitar Hero Live, WWE 2K 16, NBA 2K16, Skylanders SuperChargers 

Showcasing brands such as Cooler Master, BenQ, Corsair, GIGABYTE, Aorus, Acer, Intel and Microsoft.
An experience centre will have two Virtual Reality headsets on demo, showcasing the latest in personal entertainment. Give-aways galore will also be handed out at the stand.
Rectron is hosting the first ever competitive Heroes of the Storm tournament that will culminate in LAN finals hosted at the Rectron stand which will give the top 8 Heroes of the Storm Teams the opportunity to battle it out in front of a live audience for a share of R60000 in prize money. All games will be live streamed on Twitch.

Skycastle Games will be showcasing: The Dice Masters range (collectible dice building game); The X-Wing miniatures games; The Game of Thrones board game; The Marvel VS Card game; Heroclix ranges; The Krosmaster miniatures board game 

Will be doing a competition giveaway at their stand on the Saturday with a leader board ranking system that will result in a winner at the end of the day. The winner will receive a Slyr Black/Yellow valued at R1,699.00 as well as a Skullcandy Hamper
SLAY & PLAY: Slay your old headphones in the Skullcandy recycle bin on their stand, up your game and play with 30% off any Skullcandy Gaming headsets. (Ts & cs Apply) 

Start Up ( is an organisation that supports individuals diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome (and related ASD diagnoses) in finding and maintaining appropriate high-end employment opportunities as well as educational placement. A career in gaming is highly appealing to those with AS and many of these individuals show remarkable talent in gaming, computers and game development. If you or someone you know has AS, rAge offers you a chance to speak to the Start Up organisation on the show floor (at stand 9). 

Unplug Yourself is a campaign which promotes table-top gaming in South Africa. The campaign was conceived in 2014 by three of South Africa’s leading table-top gaming distributors, Skycastle Games, Board Games SA and Blowfish Entertainment. The campaign is planned to be an on-going initiative for the foreseeable future, moving beyond rAge and extending to retailer participation and further promotional drives. The aim is to make tabletop gaming a staple activity of every home in South Africa. They will be exhibiting and demoing the latest products from all three distributor’s catalogues as well as popular favourites. 

Xbox will showcase the following games on their stand: Cuphead; Rise of the Tomb Raider; Forza Motorsport 6; Rare Replay 6
Gaming on Windows 10 will be communicated with the following features: Streaming Xbox One to Windows 10; Xbox App
Fallout 4 Pipboy Photo Opportunity
There are many more stores and stalls occupying the round circular space at TicketPro Dome in Johannesburg. Buy your tickets as soon as possible and reach early at the venue so as to avoid missing on deals. Last year I went at 9:15am on Saturday and I had to park on the other side of the road and use overhead bridge to walk towards the dome.
