Play Expo is an event that was held in Manchester on 12th & 13th October 2013 and held by Replay Events LTD. This event sees a great mix of gaming both old and new. From classic arcade machines and pinball tables to Assassins Creed and Dark Souls 2 on the Playstation 4 and the appearance of Oculus Rift for all to enjoy. JoypadAndMe went along with Adam and Jaymes from A&J’s gaming café in Liverpool to see just what was going on.
