Future Publishing have announced that they are backing a major gaming event which will be held at Earls Court later this year.

The event, called Games Matrix, is planned for October 3rd to 6th, and will be run in conjunction with Future's Games Radar. Current and up-coming games on PC, PS2, Xbox, Gamecube and Game Boy Advance will all be showcased over the three day event.

Future Publishing held a similar event several years ago, which proved popular, with over 200 consoles and PC's available for gamers to get a taste of products which were on offer at the time.

Both Haymarket Exhibitions and Future Publishing hope that Games Matrix will bridge the gap between publishers and the public, and provide a true event which will allow new products to be showcased to the very people who play them, and allow the developers and publishers to meet gamers to see exactly what they think of their games.
