Here's an update on the World Cyber Games (WCG) / Asian Cyber Games (ACG) for 2008. For console gaming, the Philippine team will be looking for players on the Xbox 360 platform and these are the games:

WCG Philippines will be getting 2 players for Guitar Hero III (one for WCG, another one for ACG), and 1 player for Virtua Fighter 5 (ACG). For Guitar Hero III they will have a competition wherein the first place winner goes to the WCG (Germany), while the 2nd runner up goes to ACG (Singapore). For Virtua Fighter 5 there will be a competition to find the best player to send for the ACG.

There are more details on this subject over on the official site for WCG Philippines. There is an announcement forum thread here with even more details (including the PC games that will be part of the competition).

Pinoyxbox also has a forum thread on the subject of the WCG / ACG. If you'd like to meet other Xbox players who are planning to go to the competition, check out this Pinoyxbox forum thread.

Dates have been set for the preliminaries. The preliminary for Guitar Hero 3 begins on MAY 10, 2008. As for venue and registration details, we have yet to receive word on those, but we do know that there will be online registration for the competition. Eliminations will be held in Manila, Davao and Cebu.

The Philippine finals will be held on July 10 -13 at SM Mall of Asia, Pasay City.
