Record-breaking crowds turned up on Saturday for Scotland’s biggest gaming event at Braehead.

Many of those attending the event were dressed in amazing costumes as they re-enacted the characters from their favourite video games.

More than 6000 fans were expected to descend on The Arena at intu Braehead for PLAY Expo Glasgow 2019 for the two-day extravaganza of gaming and popular than ran on Saturday and Sunday.

And for the first time the Scottish Gaming Championships were held at the show.

PLAY Expo Glasgow is staged by experienced video game show specialists, Replay Events. Organiser Andy Brown said: “Ticket sales have been phenomenal and already we have sold many more tickets than we did for the same show last year.

“It’s definitely going to be a record-breaking weekend and I expect we’ll have more than 6000 through the doors compared to 5000 last year. A lot of this is down to the bigger show we’re putting on with more video games and gaming machines for people to play.

“It’s going to be a fantastic, colourful weekend with the fans coming along dressed as characters from their favourite video games and as well as the tickets already sold we also expect a lot of people to turn up on the day.”
