It’s great that gamers in the Philippines now have the E-Sports and Gaming Summit (ESGS), a video game convention we can call our own. Even better is the fact that major developers/publishers like PlayStation, Ubisoft, and Bandai Namco are taking part in ESGS and have their own booths, media briefings, and stage presentations.

Here’s a round-up of some of the notable booths, events, and people from ESGS 2016 Day 1:

A media-only demo session for PlayStation VR’s Jackal Experience
