Indiagames, SingTel join hands for first World Cyber Games

MUMBAI: Indiagames has entered a partnership with SingTel (Singapore Telecommunications Limited) to launch Asia Pacific’s first and largest competition for mobile gamers – World Cyber Games (mobile).

 

 

SingTel is a part of the eight member Bridge Mobile Alliance that also includes Airtel (India). The WCG Mobile Championship will be hosted on SingTel’s GamesXtremeLeague (GXL) Mobile platform.

It is a regional mobile games platform with features such as registration, community news and ranking of scores, etc. It is facilitated by Bridge Mobile’s regional infrastructure, enabling IP connectivity between member operators as well as regional billing settlement capabilities.

 

 

Indiagames holds the global rights for WCG Mobile Tournament, licensed from International Cyber Marketing (ICM), to host the World Cyber Games Competition for mobile phones.

The event will be kicked off in Asia Pacific region and will pit mobile gamers in Australia, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore and Taiwan against one another.

 

 

SingTel’s GamesXtremeLeague (GXL) Mobile platform is a regional mobile games platform with features such as registration, community news and ranking of scores, provided exclusively to the SingTel Group. It is facilitated by Bridge Mobile’s regional infrastructure, enabling IP connectivity between member operators as well as regional billing settlement capabilities.

The four official games for the Mobile Tournament are Midtown Madness 3, Bruce Lee, Goolie, and Chopper Rescue.

Players across the region will be engaged first on an online championship followed by a ground event in some countries where the national champions will be selected. These national champions will be then flown down to Singapore in November for the Grand Finals where they will compete with other participants across the world to be the ultimate winners.

Indiagames CEO Vishal Gondal says, "We are very happy to associate with SingTel’s GamesXtreme League Mobile to power first ever World Cyber Games Mobile Championship. We are sure gamers across Asia Pacific will truly enjoy this unique experience put together by Indiagames in collaboration with SingTel and Bridge Mobile."

SingTel vice president (consumer marketing) Thomas Yeo says, "We are meeting the needs of an avid and growing pool of mobile gamers by bringing the whole playing experience to a new level. Instead of just competing against players in their own country, they can now challenge the best in the region and the world. Beyond the exhilaration and thrill of gaming for the players, we hope to give them a platform to be recognised internationally."

Bridge Mobile CEO Dr Patrick Sim says, "Bridge Mobile is proud to partner with SingTel, Indiagames and our other operator members in pioneering the first and largest mobile gaming championship in Asia Pacific. SingTel’s GXL Mobile will set the foundation and platform for the creation and rollout of regional mobile gaming services in the future."

The Grand Finals will be held concurrently in Suntec City, Singapore from 16 - 20 November 2005.
