This week (from 25 October to 30 October to be exact), Canal Walk in Cape Town will be hosting their second gaming expo. The event is ‘powered’ by BT Games and Good Hope FM and promises to offer Capetonians an opportunity to get their hands-on the PlayStation VR, a few pre-release games, “the latest consoles and more!” All this is available for free.

Alongside that will be a cosplay competition on Saturday and the Kwesé Sports ACE Football (it’s FIFA 17 in case you were wondering) Tournament which has a prize pool of R20,000.

The tournament has already topped out at 600 entrants, but you can head to their website for more general information. Cosplayers can get additional information here, but the event has no entry fee and will start at 12pm. Up for grabs is around R10,000 in Canal Walk vouchers.
