After several rounds of intense Guitar Hero III competition....ScaR (Luis Benesa) and Wuffy (Rafael Formoso) - emerged as the Philippine Champions for GUITAR HERO III! Both are Philippine champions already because it's already guaranteed that they're both going to two international championships, one for the WCG 2008 Asian Championship in Singapore and the other for the WCG 2008 Grand Finals in Germany.

Colonel_Pogi (Ralph Pasion) and Mibulan (Marlowe Bulan), also both from Pinoyxbox, played very well in the final matches...as finalists they will get a prize of P1,000 tomorrow during the awarding ceremonies.

Tomorrow there will be a deciding match between ScaR and Rafael to determine who gets to go to Cologne, Germany for the WCG Grand Finals this November, and who goes to Singapore for the WCG Asian Championship! The first placer for tomorrow's match will be sent to Germany and get to win over 30,000 PESOS in cash and other prizes. The second placer will win a cash prize as well, along with other prizes and the opportunity to compete in Singapore for the WCG Asian Championship this August!

Once again, congratulations to all the players, and to PINOYXBOX for completely dominating the competition for the Xbox 360 for this year's World Cyber Games.

Tomorrow, everyone's invited to attend the WCG FINALS for the final match between ScaR and Rafael. It will be held at 1PM in the afternoon at the SM Mall of Asia.

The awarding ceremonies for all the winners for the games will be at 6:30PM tomorrow. After these awarding ceremonies, Pinoyxbox will announce the winners for its WCG raffle for the players that participated in the xbox 360 events. Everyone who attended the preliminaries is encouraged to attend so that you can claim your prize right there if you win in the raffle. In case a winner isn't there, we'll just find a way to give your prize to you, but it might get delayed since we may have to meet up somewhere so we can give you your prize. If you're interested in getting your raffle prize right away, it's best to be there tomorrow at the SM Mall of Asia during the awarding ceremonies.

Thanks again to all the players that joined the Xbox 360 games for the WCG this year!

Gamers based in the Philippines: How to get in Xbox Live

NOTE: This article has recently been updated (as of August 12, 2006). Singapore no longer lets you input '00000' as your zip code. Please see below for alternate zip codes.

So you're a Filipino living in the Philippines with a brand-spanking new Xbox 360. You've heard about all the wonderful stories on Xbox Live. You happen to have a pretty good broadband connection. One day, you try out the Xbox Live sign-up options on your 360, and you find out to your dismay that your country is NOT listed. What do you do?

Now, you can probably enjoy your 360 without live at all, but I have to tell you: YOU ARE MISSING OUT. As Peter Moore said in the recent MS Press Conference: "Having your 360 connected to Xbox Live is as vital as having your computer connected to the Internet".

He is so damned right.

I've been playing on Xbox Live for almost a year now (both on my original Xbox and the Xbox 360). Essentially I found out all of this with a little bit of research, a little…

Possible Solution for PS3 NAT TYPE 3 on Globe Telecom PROLINK Modems!

Long time no post...been busy with work but still gaming on the side when I have the time. One thing I have been trying to fix for practically months now is getting NAT TYPE 3 on my Playstation 3 when connected wirelessly via a Linksys WRT120N Router connected to Globe Telecom's PROLINK Modem/Router.

NAT TYPE 2 is the ideal set up to find games online easily and to connect to more players.

I'll probably update this post some time later today to clarify some things...in a rush because I'm also working...

Here was my setup before:

Linksys WRT120N
- Has DHCP Server On
- Getting an IP address from the Globe modem of 192.168.254.x

Prolink Modem from Globe
- Apparently also a router of some kind
- The public/dynamic(?) IP address from Globe was in this device and not in the WRT120N device, as evidenced by an address that was not 192.168.x.x
- Username and password was in the Prolink device.

After reading a LOT of information online, including this one:

The CD-R King USB Arcade Stick on the Playstation 3 - An Honest (But Not Cynical) Opinion

(*Pictures included below. I also have a picture of the BUTTON CONFIGURATION Screen for Street Fighter IV for the Playstation 3, configured for use with the CDR-King USB Arcade Stick. This will surely be useful for anyone considering to buy the CD-R King USB Arcade Stick. Mapping the buttons on the CD-R King stick can be quite tedious, with the way SFIV is set up for button mapping.)

I spent a (relatively) small amount of money on one of those generic USB Arcade Sticks that they're selling over in CD-R King (the stick cost PHP 550). The thing is, arcade sticks for the Playstation 3 have become extremely rare now that Street Fighter IV is out. Playing on the PS3 controller is workable, but gives me a sore left thumb.

It's one of the hassles of living in an 'unsupported' country that I haven't got any easy access to peripherals for game consoles. Even before SFIV came out, arcade sticks for any console here in the Philippines is extremely rare, and even if they do come…
