Commenting on the on-ground initiative, Animax Marketing Manager Supriya Bambawale says," The Animax Grand Gaming Challenge 2007 was devised to tap into the gaming phenomenon that has invaded the lives of Animax‘s core audience, the wired generation, comprising 15 - 24 year olds who are tech savvy, gadget friendly and trend conscious youngsters in the country."


Among the winners teams, ATE - winners of Gamebox took home the trophies and a cheque for Rs 100,000 for winning NCS, the popular first person shooter game.

The game jockeys representing the South and North zone were promoted to carry out the responsibility of a Regional Game Jockey with Sify Gamedromes.

It has clearly reinforced the position of Animax as a youth channel that‘s a lifestyle destination for our wired generation," adds Bambawale.
