IMMEDIATE ISSUE

31 JULY 2012

Squeeze that mouse a little harder because this year's NAG LAN is initiating

its launch sequence countdown. Painful metaphors aside, all you really need

to know is that tickets go on sale Saturday 4 August 2012. rAge will again

feature the sleep-depriving three day NAG LAN @ rAge event, brought to you

by Corex, who are the headline sponsors for the NAG LAN this year. This is a

wired melting pot of adrenalin-filled gaming in the form of a 53-hour BYOC

(Bring Your Own Computer) LAN, where 2 460 gamers all hook up to one network

for 53 hours of pure gaming at the 10th annual rAge expo, running from 5-7

October 2012 at the Coca-Cola Dome in JHB.?

2012 marks the tenth year of the annual NAG LAN, which is organised and

managed by NAG Magazine, South Africa's leading gaming, computer and

technology magazine. Set to provide interactive entertainment of a different

dimension, the NAG LAN @ rAge is the biggest gaming LAN in Southern Africa,

and the entire event translates into a gaming fanatic's ultimate experience.

Imagine being able to do your absolute favourite hobby non-stop for 53 hours

with 2 400 like-minded people - it has to be one of the highlights of the

year if you're a gamer.

Are You Game?

In the last few years tickets for the NAG LAN have sold out within hours,

leaving thousands of gamers on the field without ammo. The lucky few

thousand who secured their tickets in time experienced the gaming event of a

lifetime, and this year will be no different.?

Established in June 1998, NAG Magazine (who organise and run the rAge Expo)

is published for gaming enthusiasts who want more by the leader in this

field. Editor of the magazine, Michael James says, "rAge - or the Really

Awesome Game Expo - is the largest and best expo of its kind in the country

and has established the benchmark for interactive gaming entertainment.

Hosting South Africa's thriving gaming and technology community, we not only

showcase the latest games and high-end gaming technology, but deliver the

NAG LAN, giving gamers the opportunity to show off their skills and have a

blast.? In addition with the guys and girls 'pre-booking' before the event,

means we have 2 460 people on the show floor to interact with exhibitors

before the doors even open"

Alan Spohr, PC Peripheral Product Manager, Corex is also excited about the

upcoming event "Our sponsorship of the LAN is in line with our positioning

as an active and enthusiastic leader in Business to Consumer distribution

and we are gearing up for an incredible show."

Intel is once again providing the server horsepower to ensure all your

gaming sessions run without a hiccup. NAG and rAge is proud to partner with

Intel for the tenth successful year running.

This year's rAge Expo will take place at the Coca-Cola Dome in Northgate,

offering the visitors world-class exhibitors, retailers and developers in

one of the fastest growing and most popular entertainment industries in the

world. With the NAG LAN bringing adrenaline and competition to the expo,

2012 is not to be missed. Tickets cost R350 per person and will go on sale

at Computicket on 4 August at 09h00, but it will be a race against the clock

for the lucky gamers who get theirs in time.
