Xbox forum starts WCG raffles
By Alex Villafania INQUIRER.net TO HELP draw more players to the World Cyber Games Philippines tournaments, the local Microsoft Xbox online forum PinoyXbox.com has started a raffle for players of the two Xbox 360 games included in the WCG preliminaries. The PinoyXbox raffle rules state that players who join the tournaments for Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock and Virtua Fighter 5, which are the official Xbox 360 games for the WCG, will get the chance to win several Xbox 360 titles. These include Virtua Fighter 5, Project Gotham Racing 4, Universe at War, Grand Theft Auto 4, and a Guitar Hero III bundle, among others. The titles are provided by video game sales shop Ysidro's GameCore and online rental company GameHopper.com. The titles cost between P1,500 pesos to P2,500. Incidentally, the raffle is not officially sanctioned by the organizers of the WCG Philippines tournaments. In an interview, PinoyXbox moderator Philip Ortiz said the raffle was started by PinoyXbox and the game providers and is aimed at enticing Xbox 360 players to join the preliminary competitions for the Xbox 360, which start in June. "But we've talked to the organizers of the WCG and they actually liked the idea. This is to draw up support for the Xbox 360 games. This is our own initiative," Ortiz said. In previous years the only Xbox 360 game fully supported by WCG Philippines was Dead or Alive 4. The first placer in Guitar Hero III will join the Philippine delegate to the WCG Grand Final in Germany in November. Likewise, the second placer in Guitar Hero III and the first placer in Virtua Fighter 5 will go to the Asian Cyber Games competition in Singapore.
