East Coast Gaming Expo - From old school to new, the East Coast Gaming
Expo has something for gamers of all ages.

Reading, Pa -- July 25th, 2005 -- Gamers love to argue about their
favorite pastime. "Mortal Kombat on Sega Genesis is the best video game
ever!" "No way, Donkey Kong is the best!" One thing no gamer would dare
argue is the amazing success that the East Coast Gaming Expo
(www.ecgxpo.com) was blessed with for its inaugural event.

On September 18th 2005 gamers will be able to come together again for
East Coast Gaming Expo 2 (ECGXpo 2). ECGXpo 2 will be bigger and better
than last years amazing event. And you thought it wasn't possible -
shame on you! The organizers of ECGXpo are constantly striving to come
up with new ideas, features, and improvements to put the greatest show on
the east coast. Some standout features of this show include:

- The classic game museum hosted by our friends from the Classic Gaming
- Rare arcade machines, set on free-play, from Challenge Arcade, TNT
Amusements, and Quarter Arcade, not found anywhere else
- Game auction
- Multiple console kiosks free to play
- Tournaments and contests

The recent resurgence of classic games for some of today's newest
proves one thing: the world is nostalgic for classic video games! You
COULD play Space Invaders on your cell phone or Asteroids on your Pocket
PC, but people are digging out their old dusty Atari systems and plugging
in their favorite games because nothing plays like the ORIGINALS.

"Everything gets better with age: wine, cheese, cars, and video games are
exception" says founder and organizer Chuck Whitby when asked why the
ECGXpo 2 is a convention with a retrogaming edge. "Everyone has a
connection to classic gaming - what would today's games like Halo or
Grand Theft Auto be without the beginning steps of Wolfenstein 3D and

East Coast Gaming Expo will make its triumphant return to the Inn at
Reading in Wyomissing, Pennsylvania on Saturday, September 18th 2005.
Show hours are 10am to 8pm. Media is welcome during setup hours of 7am-
