World Cyber Games Competition Heats Up
In San Francisco, the World Cyber Games Championship is offering a total of $400,000 in prizes for its finalists. Players are pit against each other in a variety of first-person shooters including "Counter-Strike: Condition Zero," "Unreal Tournament 2004" and "Halo", along with other titles such as "FIFA 2004" and "Need for Speed Underground." The World Cyber Games began in 2001 with players from 37 countries in its first year. This year is the first time it has been held outside of Korea, and from now on organizers plan to hold it at different cities worldwide, including Singapore next year. Good to know that you can make a living doing almost anything you love. The little fella here on the right is supposed to be the WCG Mascot.
