Samsung sparks PC gaming revolution in India with World Cyber Games

MUMBAI: Samsung India Electronics Ltd. has kicked off the PC gaming revolution in India by announcing the launch of the Cyber Olympics event – the World Cyber Games 2005. The event was kicked off in Delhi yesterday.

 

 The World Cyber Games is the world's first "Cyber Game Festival," designed to build a healthy cyber culture. The best gamers around the world gather in various cities to share the excitement and fun of the game tournaments. The World Cyber Games (WCG) have been promoted on the lines of the International Olympic movement. Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd, South Korea – is the main sponsor for the WCG in over 75 countries this year. The winners from each of the 75 countries will compete at the WCG finals being held at Suntec City Singapore, between 16 - 20 November, 2005.

 

WCG India preliminary will be held across eight cities in India between 13 - 31 October. The cities are as follows: New Delhi, Ahmedabad, Pune, Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore, Hyderabad and Kolkatta. The preliminaries will be followed by the semi finals and the finals in Mumbai on 30 - 31 October.

The gaming contest includes team as well as individual games. "PC gaming is today a very evolved sport – fostering virtues of 'team work', 'healthy competitiveness' between teams and individuals and there is a strong emphasis planning and analytical skills," said IT Products general manager Harry Ahn.

"Games like Counter Strike (five member team game), Warcraft , FIFA football, Warhammer and Need for Speed test these attributes in the gamers. While most of us interface with the PC as a productivity enhancement tool, today PC gaming is emerging as a very strong entertainment platform across the world," Ahn added.

 

Recognising the needs of the rapidly growing gaming industry in India, Samsung now offers a range of products designed keeping the discerning customers in mind. For serious gamers, Samsung's MagicGreen Monitors, SATA HDD and Combo Drives are ideal. The MagicBright? Ô technology in Samsung's recently introduced Magic Green monitors allows for change in screen brightness to suit multiple applications. The technology offers specialised settings for four highly used applications – Movie Mode; Game mode; Internet mode and Text mode.

Indiagames is working along-with Samsung India to successfully execute the WCG event this year. Alongside, Sify i-Way chain of cyber-cafes will also be supporting WCG-2005 in India this year.
