Has anyone been to one of these? I'm thinking of going to the one in london the weekend after next.

However, I want to find out a bit more about it first. I don't really fancy an hour on the train each way, plus the tube, then a 2 1/2 hour queue (like at gamestars live) for only 5 mins on the machine.

So basically, any info much appreciated.

Cheers.

Ah, this is the info I'm after. Wonder if you just have to queue up outside till there's space to go in though? I imagine the London one will be busy. Hopefully I'm wrong though...

Cheers Joe :-)

Wasn't very busy at all, apparently. Just asked someone there.

The time slots are half an hour, but you can usually get away with 2 slots at a time, seeing as there are a lot of units, and not a huge demand to play some of the stuff.

The Light?

It's quite big for what it contains (it's nothing mall-sized) - sort of a lower-row consisting of the Hotel and some restaurants, mid-row with some shops and bars, then the upper row with the Cinema, Gym and Chinese Buffet restaurant.

If the 360s are going to be where I think they are, it's not that big as the Cinema Box Office, stairs, elevators and existing arcade machines are there.

If you look at this: [URL]http://www.leeds-cityscape.co.uk/light.jpg[/URL]

...I'm guessing it will be hosted in the area to the right, where the guy in the black jacket has his arm out. It may even be on the ground floor, but there are shops on both sides and it can get quite busy down there.

So what is the place it's held in the Bullett? I hope it's big to accomodate a lot of 360's!

I'd imagine there were quite a few people there. It'll probably be even worse in London. Hmmmmmmmmmm, think I'll wait till launch night. ;-)
