Microsoft has officially announced plans for their Xbox 360 Pac-Man World Championship, using the Xbox Live Arcade version of Namco’s classic arcade game. The tournament will be held from April 26 to May 9 with the finalists holding a final match in New York City on June 5. Here is a snip:
A total of nine finalists in the Xbox 360 “Pac-Man” World Championship will advance to the finals based upon the highest Xbox LIVE Arcade leaderboard scores. There will be one finalist from each of the following countries and geographic areas: Asia, Australia/New Zealand, Canada, Japan and Mexico; and two finalists from Europe and the United States. This group will also be joined by the winner of the “Pac-Man” FANatic contest, a competition that will encourage “Pac-Man” fans from the United States and Canada to submit a video that demonstrates why they are the ultimate “Pac-Man” fan. The winning entry will be flown to New York as a wildcard entrant in the final round of the tournament. Details are available online at https://www.xbox.com/en-US/esports starting April 25, 2007.
The Xbox 360 “Pac-Man” World Champion will receive worldwide acclaim from being the first-ever Xbox 360 “Pac-Man” World Champion and gain a place in gaming history. The winner of the finals will also receive other great prizes, including 26 years of free Quiznos toasted subs (one sandwich a week for 26 years, a $13,520 (U.S.) value), 100,000 Microsoft Points for games, movies and other fun content available on Xbox LIVE, and a one-of-a-kind Xbox 360 featuring a special design inspired by “Pac-Man.”
