Midwest Gaming Classic - 2013

Midwest Gaming Classic will be held on Saturday, March 23, 2013, from 10:00am to 8:00pm and Family Day Sunday, March 24, 2013, from 10:00am to 5:00pm. It will be held at the Sheraton Milwaukee, Brookfield Hotel in Brookfield, WI. You can learn more about the event at their WEBSITE.

One of the most popular attractions at the Midwest Gaming Classic each year is the Gaming and Computing Museum. The museum features everything from Pong to the PS3, with ultra-rare systems like the Super A'Can sitting near really common systems like the PS1. Unlike a lot of "museum" displays, the Midwest Gaming Classic's museum is almost entirely interactive! If you want to remember playing a game on an Odyssey 2 or want to check out something new, you can actually try it!

And speaking of something new, the Museum has just the thing for modern gamers this year! A brand new room, the Modern Game Room, will open this year! The room will feature multiple HDTVs and game consoles such as the Wii U, PS3 and Xbox 360. Check out some of the most popular games on these new consoles, or test your skill against other players. There will be two multi-console LANs set up for gamers to face off against one another.

While the word classic is in the title, the Midwest Gaming Classic believes that any game can be a classic... it all depends on how you remember it, and we hope that this new Modern Game Room will give you lots of memories that you will look back on as classics in the future!

A reminder - If you haven't purchased tickets yet, there is no better time to do so than now! The Modern Game Room was made possible in large part by the strong pre-sales that we have already had. We are hoping to add significantly more content, and the best way that you can help us to do so is to pre-order your tickets now! Also, Sunday tickets are currently just $10, but will go up to $15 on January 23rd, so pre-order now!

They have got many, many more announcements that will be coming in the weeks ahead, so make sure to start checking their site regularly!
