Nintendo funds old-school gaming expo

Space Invaders menace Science Museum

Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

Nintendo has opened its wallet to fund a £1m gaming retrofest at London's Science Museum where teary-eyed old timers can chew the fat about Space Invaders, Pac-man and Donkey Kong.

According to London's Evening Standard, the expo will open later this year and run until 2007 when it will be replaced by "an interactive gallery built to inspire aspiring programmers", which will wow the crowds until 2009.

It's not all about nostalgia though - gamers will have the chance to get their sweaty mitts on the latest throbbing hardware and titles. Nintendo general manager David Yarnton said: "This exhibition means not only can we celebrate the great history of gaming, but also inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers to get involved in what looks to be an exciting future." ®
