Unlike other shows, PGW is a hugely festive event designed entirely for gaming fans, and the atmosphere is often over-the-top – agoraphobics refrain. Among the publishers are Nintendo, Ubisoft, Sony, Microsoft, Bandai Namco, Square Enix, Sega or Capcom. A space is reserved for new players but also for “made in France” games. Please note that the show is much smaller than in previous years as all the stands are grouped together 48,000 m2 of Hall 1 at Paris Expo uniquely.
