Autosalon Final Battle 2006 Part 3 & GAME1: Game Expo

December 2, 2006 | Author: | In: Car, Conventions & Events, Games, Photography

The final post of Autosalon Final Battle 2006 photo shoots. I’ve also included the GAME1 photo shoots as there weren’t many photos I took of that. So read on! WARNING: Picture intensive post.

GAME1: Electronic Gaming Expo and Tournament

There really wasn’t much at the GAME! Expo. Just a variety of games that you can play. I got to try out Gears of War and Need for Spped: Carbon on XBOX 360, plus Ridge Racer 7 on Playstation 3. There was also a Nintendo Wii but I didn’t get a chance to try it out as there were a fair amount of people lining up to play. Also I went back a second time and was told no photographs were allowed of the Wii stand. Oops, I managed to sneak just one in.

Overall Impressions

This was the first Autosalon I have attended. So as a first timer I found it as a very enjoyable day. Combining two events into one was a good idea on the organizer’s part. It gives the overall experience a bit of variety. So if you are a family person, you can bring the whole family and check out the cars, whilst the family can be entertained with some XBOX 360. As a car lover myself, it ‘s so awesome to see the many type of modifications that people have done to their cars, ranging from “that looks so cool”, to “that’s pretty unique”, and up to “OMG WTF?”. But seeing these cars does make me feel my car was modified as well, but probably not to the extent with all the TV’s and such. Well one day!

Although inside shows some of the best selected cars from over Australia, the show can even extent to outside in the carpark. Some spectators cars were actually quite nice, though such a shame that I ran out of space on my camera. So if you are reading this, Sunday is the last day and if you have nothing better to do, go on towards Autosalon Final Battle 2006. It’d be a worthwhile day. And more than likely I will probably attend again next year, both Sydney round and Final Battle.

Note: Sorry for the dark photos. I didn’t use the flash as it gives a glary look to the car. Perhaps I should look into investing in a speedlite.

I’m not much of a car person, however your pics are pretty damn good quality. The shiny camera is proving its worth!
No pictures of the Wii booth huh? What, were they worried that the distraction from the camera would make the players lose concentration and suddenly loosen their grip on the controller while playing tennis?
