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…

Xbox One - System / Games general review

We picked up a [kinect-less] Xbox One a few weeks ago and have been putting it through its paces. Overall, right now I feel pretty good about this console. But I have to admit, the first experience of buying it is not very good. I'll go with the BAD news first. But do note that it isn't all bad news....

- The first time you bring it home, the console can't work without Internet. That's because it needs an absolutely-unoverrideable mandatory update. Basically, if you get this for your birthday and it's 7PM, expect to actually play games on it around a day or so later, depending on your internet speed.

- The first patch I got for it was around 800MB. This number might have changed by the time of this writing.

- All the launch games now have accumulated patches/updates over 16+ GB in size. Not just Dead Rising 3, which has been reported widely in the media. Even Forza 5.

- My internet at home is PLDT 3Mbps; managed to get all the updates pretty quickly....that's a…

E3 2015 Conferences from the Big Three - My thoughts

Microsoft:

- They get a lot of points from me for actually announcing games that will be out in 2015.
- The Backwards Compatibility update is a huge surprise that I absolutely did not expect. Having BC is difficult and expensive to do, but somehow MS managed to do it, which leads me to believe the solution they found is an inexpensive one if they've decided it's practical to do QA work for the Xbox 360s gigantic library of games and make them all work on the Xbox One. If it was too complicated or expensive they probably wouldn't have bothered. But since they did, I think we're going to see full BC some time soon for all games. It's only a matter of time.
- Halo 5 looked fantastic, but 343 has a lot of work to do to restore faith, after the horrific launch of the Halo Master Chief Collection. I think they can do it, and I'd imagine they're certainly motivated now. If they screw this one up....MS might reconsider forming a new team to handle the Halo franchis…
