Video Game Summit 2017

Chicago, Illinois – (January 2, 2017) – Remember how much fun you used to have playing Atari, Nintendo and all kinds of games on your computer? Well, you will have the rare opportunity to play these great games again at the Video Game Summit, Chicago’s premier video game trade show. In fact, several dealers in retro games will be on hand offering games, controllers, systems and memorabilia and will be prepared to buy or trade for the games you have held onto since you were a kid. Who knows, you might just have an Atari cartridge worth $1000 or more collecting dust in your attic.

“Retrogaming,” the playing and collecting of classic video games, is more popular than ever, especially due to next generation systems having “classic” game collections such as Intellivision Lives or a download service such as Nintendo Wii’s Shop Channel where you can buy classic games for systems such has Nintendo Entertainment System and Commodore 64. In fact, a dedicated group of programmers still issues new games for retro game systems, such as the Atari 2600, last seen in retail stores over 30 years ago.

The Video Game Summit, now in its 14th year, brings together classic and modern generation gamers from all over the country to swap stories, games. Visit our Game Area where you can play games like Tempest 2000 on the Jaguar, Bomberman 94on the Turbographx-16 and Phoenix on the 2600 just to name a few as we plan to include other systems that everyone can enjoy including home brew games for the 2600.

VGS is open to the public and people of all ages with an interest in video gaming are encouraged to attend. According to the event’s promoter, Dan Iacovelli, “this promises to be best the show yet with all the systems we will be showing” Best of all, admission to The 2017 Video Game Summit is only 10.00 per person (kids 12 and under with adult is free).

The Video Game Summit is being held on July 29thth, 2017 from 10 am. until 7 pm. at
The Odeum Expo Center 1033 North Villa Ave, Villa Park,IL
